CWS Challenge #1: Butterfly

Hello!

Welcome to Creative with Stamps Challenge Blog!
This is our very first challenge! YAY! =)
We have prizes, but before we get to that...check out our first theme, chosen by co-creator Monika.


Interpret the theme as you like! You can use a butterfly stamp, make a butterfly-shaped card, make your own butterfly, etc. 
As long as it is a card and stamping is included (digis allowed), you're good to go!
Be creative! 

Rules:
1. Must include stamping on cards (digital stamps are allowed)
2. Participants may link up to 3 cards per challenge
3. NO backlinking, please...Cards must be new!
4. Please, link back to your Card's post, not your entire blog
5. Please, mention "Creative with Stamps" in your post and add a link back to our Blog
6. Please, add our Challenge Graphic to your post
7. Participants may link to 10 other challenges (11 total with our challenge)
8. Please, leave a comment on three other blogs. We love to get comment and others, too :)

(You can also read our RULES HERE!)


Here's some inspiration from our DT :

You'll have until the end of the month to link your cards!
Winners will be announced on the 5th of the following month!
