Trash to Treasure - SCTL8

Good morning. It is my turn to host the Stamping Gals challenge this week. I chose Trash to Treasure as the theme. Visit Stamping Links to Love for all the details of this challenge.

That big butterfly is from Butterfly Beauty from Unity Stamp Company and the bamboo is from Gratitude = Joy also from Unity.

I colored the butterfly with my Bic Markers and sponged the background with Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Bashful Blue and Ballet Blue.

That nifty panel in the back is trimmed from a coffee sleeve and is my Trash to Treasure piece. The card base is Kiwi Kiss. I am loving that color.

This card is also for the Stamp Something Challenge this week which is to use embellishments. I added a row of plastic wiggle eyes from Michaels. I like to use these in place of brads when I am putting them directly on my card base, so I won't have the little brad legs poking through the other side.

Thanks for visiting. I hope your day is fantastic!

Wow! This is such a pretty card. I love your idea for using the wiggle eyes in place of brads on a card base - very clever! I will be using this idea in the future.
