butterflies in a garden

Recently I won $25 from Our Daily Bread via the Operation Write Home blog!  ODB issues a challenge that they want so many cards made & linked to challenge on OWH's blog and ODB will pay for the shipping of so many boxes to our soldiers!  Then they draw a name from the participants & give them a prize.... I got to pick individual stamps from they great selection. I received my order today!  and WOW, these are wonderful stamps.... and, get this, the rubber.... it's PURPLE!  eeek, love!

I also discovered that Our Daily Bread has a sketch to use, Sketch #145

Now on to my creation, this is for Our Creative Corner, our hostess this week is Meihsia with another photo inspiration, we are to use the colors & patterns in it along with using metal
