What we choose and a publication

The sketch this week from Card Positioning Systems:
 
  
What a great color challenge, it gave me another chance to pull out my Amy Butler paper!  I also incorporated the EBTKS challenge - fabric - I used a fabric tag behind the butterfly, the Cute Card Thursday challenge - ribbon, the Papertake Weekly challenge - bows and bling.  The butterfly is cut out with my Cricut (Indie Art)
  


I had a card in the February CARDS magazine.  I made this one with some Hero Arts stamps and gems.

Congrats on your pub'd card!! Actually, both cards are great! When I was reading quickly at first and saw Amy Butler, I initially thought that was the fabric........I know she's in paper now too (what isn't she in?!), but it was just kind of a natural jump for me and then I read the tag is fabric (and yes, then I looked more closely at the textures of both the paper and the tag! Actually, that little slip of my eye when I was reading was like a mini gift because it made me look closer at your beautiful card! :> Have a great weekend!
