Less is More - Recipe - Take 3 Challenges

The challenge this week on Less is More is to pick any 3 of their past challenges and incorporate them onto one card. I have decided to use Week 4 - Use 3 squares, Week 15 - Embossing and Week 16 - Butterflies.
I've used my CM square punch and some retired SU patterned paper and lined them across the card inking the edges first with some distress ink. Then I've used the SU Sizzix Beautiful Wings Embossilit die for the other two elements of the challenge. The sentiment came from one of my favourite SU stamp sets called Flight of the butterfly. More scraps used to create the card but I don't think I'm ever going to get to the bottom of the scraps box.
This arrived yesterday and was something I had been waiting for - I will reveal what is in the package tomorrow but it came from a lovely company called Country Sampler and once again I discovered them through one of my blog hopping trips and couldn't resist! Another little something to add to my never ending list of projects. While blog hopping I came across this acronym SABLE and it certainly applies to me - it stands for Stash Above and Beyond Life Expectancy - something I am sure many of you are just as guilty of but it gives us pleasure and that is what is important in life.
