Hello Everyone-
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had a fun time celebrating my gremlin's birthday and now this week will hold school preparations! Blah! lol Last night, I was up with a sick gremlin though, so not sure what the day holds!

Here are some challenges I participated in for this card:

Stampin' Sisters in Christ: Challenge: create a card of apology or one reaching out to someone and encouraging them to put the past behind them and move forward. Based on this beautiful Scripture Philippians 3:13-14 "Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
I used butterflies as they always offer HOPE for being able to TRANSFORM into something new and overcome the obstacles of life.

Pile it on Challenge #30 - Create something with Butterflies, Bugs and Bees
Digital Tuesday Challenge - DAZZLE ME (I used stickles)
Crafty Creations Challenge - Summer Lovin' 
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Friday #23 - Things with Wings
Artful INKables - Make your own background or use a Background Technique (Worn Wallpaper)

Todays card uses the beautiful I BRAKE FOR STAMPS Birds and Butterflies  stamp with the technique Worn Wallpaper from the Technique Junkie Newsletter

Here are a few more details:
