State your State Challenge

Morning all....another card to put in my card folder for my MIL.

A nice simple one this time that I will be entering into the State your State Challenge over at Stamping Vacation.

This challenge, Denise names a US state and then gives a suggested list of things that represent that state for you to use on your card.  I chose the butterfly.

I started with a white gloss card base.  Then a strip of Stampin Up design paper which I ran my scissors along the edge of to destress it and tore in a couple of places.  Next a strip of Stampin Up Really Rust.  To this I added three lovely flower stickers and had to add bling to their centres.  This stamped image I received in a swap over at Craftmad.  I coloured it up with my watercolour pencils and then topped with Dimensional Magic.  Finished the card with the 'Thank You' sticker from Sticker Store.

Remember only a couple days left to be able to go into the November Prize draw for Four (4) December Sneek Peak Christmas Stamp Sets from Mark's Finest Papers and ....... yes, and..... a $25.00 gift certificate from their store... (Mark's Finest Papers)
