4 Challenges in One!

I have done many challenges in the past, but I have never combined FOUR challenges in one. Here's a first!
And Color Throwndown #104
And now "Things with Wings" from
(details here)
So here my take on these four challenges.
thinking of you
Hope all that make sense with this simple design. I am proud to say the entire card is entirely stamped and no pattern paper was used.
Stamps : Hero Arts CL149 Flower Border, AR 169 Butterflies and Lace, CL140 Thinking of You, CG 125 Friends Definition, CG130 3 Butterflies, F5233 Scallop Circle
While finishing placing all the pieces together, somehow I felt the card was not "complete".  An orange twine was just happen to be sitting right in front of me! I added to the butterfly trail-VOILA! All of sudden, the card seems to come alive! At least that's how I felt :)
Added note: It's really four five challenges since I am also entering this for the current Hero Arts Challenge.

I'm impressed! And it turned out really nice, too! Love the way you moved those ferns/leaves across the card.

Super card! Love the addition of the twine, I think it brings interest down to the rest of the card and balances out the rhinestones.

DARLING, Virginia! Isn't it something how you were able to work in FOUR CHALLENGES with ONE CARD?? AMAZING! GREAT idea to use the twine for the butterfly trail.....I LOVE IT! Nice color combo, too. I still wonder how you do all that you do, Virginia. Your mind must never stop thinking and designing. Love, Karen xoxo
