Paper Cupcakes May 28th criss cross challenge!

Back again for the second challenge from Paper Cupcakes for the month of May. I am enjoying my time as a guest designer for the month and one of the images I selected is this beautiful flower called 'simple pleasures' which you can find right here.

You can find the Magical Monday challenge on the blog There's Magic in the Air, and play along, a very clever challenge really and one of my favorite types.  Read across the grid horizontally or vertically and choose three things you are going to incorporate into your card. I chose the challenge line that required you to use two or more types of patterned paper, punches and ribbon.

I colored in the images with prismacolor pencils and sponged in a little color around the edges of the spellbinders die. The punch I used is a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and I adhered two of them to the flower using glue dots.

You'll find many more cute images at the Paper Cupcakes web store and site, or you can win by playing along in this challenge. You have two weeks! Enjoy crafting some time week and thanks for looking!

Bingo, I hear Peggy Sue yelling bingo. ~grin~ I love your fabulous card. Your color combo is one of my very favorites and I wouldn't be a friend of the "Muddermark" if I didn't like black and white dots. She and I have that in common. The little dotted butterfly is just perfect to finish up your card with.
Your coloring of the flower is just perfect.
