ODBDSLC185 2-0-1-4 challenge

So I decided to try again for this weeks Our Daily Bread design challenge and it was to use the numbers in the new year and use that number of supplies.  It is too plain for me, I wanted to keep adding to it but wasn't sure you could do that with the challenge.

 
I used the Bird and Butterfly Labels stamp set again, the card last time used the smallest stamp in the set this time I used the biggest stamp in the set.
 
2 - Die different die sets
0- Ribbon
1- Rhinestone
4- ink colors
 
Our Daily Bread -- Bird and Butterfly stamp set
Spellbinders -- Labels 18 and classic oval dies
Memento ink -- Rich cocoa
Distress inks -- peeled paint, wild honey and tumbled glass
Gina K -- tag lines sentiment stamp
tracing wheel for the pierced border
 
instead of leaving the butterflies, grass and flowers white I used the distress inks to watercolor those areas.  If you have not done this before you just dab your ink pad onto a block or like I do, sponge it onto my Tim Holtz sheet and take water pen and pickup the color and paint it onto your image.  I didn't get a solid stamped background from my memento ink so I went over the image in areas to fill that in also.
 
Since I used the biggest die in that set, I traced around the outside of the die and cut that out to get the layered piece to the die.
 
We received another inch of snow yesterday, poor peanut was not happy when she went out for her morning bathroom break and saw the deck had snow again, I think she has had it with all this snow. The plow finally came and did the whole street so we had quite a bit more shoveling to do to clear the end of our driveway, that stuff was so heavy.  Hope you all that are dealing with the snow are doing ok.  We are warming up this next week starting today, so hopefully there won't be too much flooding.
 
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful weekend,
Connie
