CHF Challenge #1 - Anything Goes

Hey folks!  Cornish Heritage Farms is starting their new challenges over on their blog, and their first one is up today.  The theme for this first challenge is Anything Goes.

I pulled out various CHF backgrounders and stamp sets and had fun just putting different things together to see what I liked.  I ended up with this fun pink and blue butterfly card.

I started off by stamping the Denim backgrounder with two different pink inks (Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose). I used the darker pink denim on the background of my card, and I die cut a butterfly from the lighter pink denim cardstock.  I sponged some Antique Linen ink around the edges of the butterfly - going with the shabby chic feel.

I made a rosette from some Cosmo Cricket patterned paper and adhered the butterfly to the top of that.  The sentiment is from CHF's Ornamental Beauty, and I folded and cut it into a banner to go over the butterfly.  Some blue polka dot paper was added to the bottom of the card background and I punched a couple of butterflies from the same paper to go up above on the pink denim section.

Play along in this fun challenge - we'd love to see what you create!  Go to the Cornish Heritage Farms blog to enter your creation.  Need more inspiration?  Check out what my fellow CHF design team members have created for this first CHF challenge.

Such a cool card and using the denim that way is awesome. I would never have tried that myself but it really works. Looks neat in different colors and on the butterfly too.
