New Cardabilities Challenge!

I love the sketch this week at Cardabilities!  Check it out!
I so enjoy getting out old supplies and "challenging" myself by also using only those!
Starting with a blank ready-made card, I made a template and masked off the area that would be covered by the transparency. Then I stamped my text with matching ink, leaving the center white.  I then painted the chipboard swirls to match my pattern paper.

This is my first accordian flower, so please be gentle!

Supplies: 
Plaid attern paper, ChatterBox; Blue paper, Unknown;
Sentiment and text stamps by Stampendous, "Dream Text";
Transparency is Little Yellow Bicycle (also edge was re-inked with Copics to match papers);
Cricut butterfly, "Give a Hoot";
chipboard swirls, Lil' Davis Designs;
flower center, Melody Ross;
scallop scissors, ProvoCraft;
Helmar 450 Adhesive

Many of these items have been in my stash for a long time! What a thrill to finally put them to good use! This card will eventually be sent through Send Love Today to one of the many young cancer patients they sponsor.
Have you decided what you want to do with the many cards you make?
