Crafty Secrets Visits Word Art Wednesday

Hello, my crafty friends!  Today is Wednesday, which means it's time for another great Anything Goes Challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  This week, we are being sponsored by Mark's Finest Papers (offering a free stamp set to one lucky winner), AND Crafty Secrets (offering a digital prize for another winner).  The card I made for this week's challenge uses some lovely Crafty Secrets images from their sweet Spring Printables Sheet as well as a stamp image from a Creative Scraps Sheet, a butterfly cut from the same Spring Printables Sheet and s layer of vellum, some purple baker's twine, this week's free word art/scripture file, machine stitching and some inking.
It would be WONDERFUL to have you all come by and play along with us at Word Art Wednesday for the chance to win one of our fantastic prizes, and if you use a Crafty Secrets image, you can also enter their challenge.  If you read the first paragraph on the Word Art Wednesday Blog, you'll even learn about a third way to win!
I'm going to share my card in these challenges:
Crafty Secrets/Heartwarming Vintage Blog - February Linky Challenge - All You Need Is Love - I used the Spring Printables Sheet as well as some Creative Scraps Pages.
Pile It On Challenge Blog - Challenge #55 - Use A Bow - I used purple baker's twine to create my bow!

DL Art February Linky Party - Anything Goes - Thanks for inviting me to play along, Diana!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - "All Creatures Great & Small" - My "creature" is the butterfly I added at the top by repurposing a digital image and die-cutting it into a butterfly.  I made another layer of my "creature"/butterfly out of vellum to make his wings stand up a bit.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed day,
