Bombshell - Baby Got Back Challenge!

Happy Friday Everyone!!! Thanks for popping by today!! I have a super fabulous challenge creation to show you thanks to the fabulous Cheryl over at Bombshell Stamps!! Cheryl challenged us to create without using DESIGNER PAPER! GASP!! We were to make our OWN "Designer Paper". Hence...the title of the challenge BABY GOT BACK! (hehe) Where's Sir Mix-a-Lot when you need him!! ;)

I used the Butterfly Queen and Bombshell Angel sets to create this card. My card base is a hot orange cardstock. My background aka homemade designer paper is stamped with both the Lil' Angel and Lil' Devil stamps from the Bombshell Angel set.

I stamped the butterflies and colored them in in my color scheme of orange and purple. I carefully trimmed them out and adhered them with foam adhesive.
I then used my apron punch to cut 3 pieces one each of orange, white and purple as a border edge and stitched them together and adhered them to the right edge of my card.

The ever so gorgeous Butterfly Queen is colored with my Copics, Souffle pens and Sakura sparkly gel pens. She's stamped on PTI white cardstock and matted on purple cardstock from The Paper Source.

Before I adhered my main panel down I made a loopy bow using PTI perfect match ribbon around the bottom of the card with the bow on the left hand side for some nice balance with the butterflies.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great weekend!!
