new challenge site

I found a new challenge site a couple of weeks ago but haven't been able to take part in the challenges til this week and even so, I'm a little late getting in this week. It's dans ma maison ... il y a and it's very successful already. Ever since I saw the house shape being used on another group I was on last year, I have been fascinated by this shape and all you can do with it. And then my friend Heather has been using it, as have many other artists and I just knew I had to get in on it, but I needed a reason. I don't know why, I just did. Now I have it! heeheeee

This week the challenge is for butterflies and this is what I did. I just love b'flies and I was thrilled I had a legit reason to do a piece with them. I used another Basic Grey paper and another Paper Whimsy image, used Distress Ink Vintage Photo along the roof line and lightly embossed it in gold and added a butterfly image from Inkadinkado that I just love. Hope you like it!

That would make a nice book cover. The contents could be about being blessed by butterflies landing on a person..or metamorphosis??
