Simple Butterfly Wishes

This is for today's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE - Design Spirit Studio where I found so many adorable pieces. I just love the clocks especially the ones like this BUTTERFLY CLOCK so I went with that for my focal panel. I stamped the large butterfly from Butterfly Kisses in barely banana then rolled it in dusty durango. This is also for Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE - Time. While showing love to the other uploads for the challenge I found this darling RING, RING, RING card created by niki1. I do not have any clock images and thought this was a perfect way to meet the TIME challenge using beads. Isn't she creative? Thanks Niki for the inspiration. I used my paper piercer to thread the beads through so this is also for Thursday's TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE #030 - Paper Piercing. I used a layout from today's JUST US GIRLS #14 - Sketch Challenge. I used 2 stamp sets from TREEHOUSE STAMPS - Butterfly Kisses, Simple Wishes for this card. I used the 3 small butterflies to make a background dp for the panel behind my sentiment layer. I thought I was doing Tuesday's color challenge too until I realized I did not add any gray. Shannon will be so proud bc I completed the inside and envelope. That is my New Years Resolution. LOL. How did I do?
