Butterfly Bits & #TGIFTD01

****UPDATE: I was selected as a finalist for the TGIF Throwdown! I'm very excited! Now the Winner will be chosen by public vote! 

Well let me tell you folks... This was FUN!! I know, you don't know what I am talking about... It's the new TGIF Throw Down Challenge and I just had a blast creating my first submission! This challenge is really different because you have a limited list of supplies that you are both required to use, and, allowed to use. First, I'll show you my card because I'm excited about it, then I'll tell you more about the challenge. Here's my "butterfly bits" card. I really wanted a black background but black paper isn't allowed in this challenge. Lucky for me white paper and black ink are both allowed so I used my black ink pad like a paint brush on to make some black paper for both the background and the "hello." I used the golden "butterfly bits" that were left over after using the butterfly thinlits on gold foil to make my background. I used the smallest butterfly thinlit on a doily and sponged it with Blackberry Ink. I like the way it came out with pretty details just on the tips of the wings. 

 And, a little close up to see the details...

Here are the items that this challenge requires you to use at least four of... I used Gold Foil, Hello You Thinlits, Butterfly Thinlits and Blackberry Ink.

And, here is your "pantry..." You may not use anything that is not on this list (besides adhesive). I used White Cardstock, Black Ink (lots of black ink), White Bakers Twine and a Doily. I also used scissors, my big shot, paper cutter, blocks and a sponge.

I hope you like my card and this new challenge! See you all soon!
