Flight of Challenge (Pile It On! plus 4)

WooHoo!  Somebody has started the mother lode of challenge sites, Pile It On!  The object of the game is to use the weekly Pile It On Challenge with as many other current challenges as you can.  I think I have a total of five on this one.  Let's count!
ONE:  Pile It On! - Use a non-stamped sentiment.
TWO:  Sketches (by Tamara) - see the top image above (http://sketchesbytamara.blogspot.com/2009/06/layout-sketch-99.html)
THREE:  365 Cards Day 101 - Fun with Food: Veggies- Create a card with a veggie (Wonder how many more broccoli cards we will see? (http://365cards.blogspot.com/)
FOUR:  Spoon Full of Sugar #45 - Butterflies (I've got them inside (second photo from top) and outside (bottom photo). (http://aspoonfullofsugarchallenge.blogspot.com/)
FIVE:  Secret Crafter #35 - Bling ( I've got jewels and sparkly butterfly stickers... that's bling!

Now for credits:

Stamps:  Broccoli - Self carved with Nasco Safety Cut, Spaced out person (inside) - Zettiology, Grid - Stamp Francisco (Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers)
Cardstock:  Dark green from a pack I bought about 13 years ago at Grocery Outlet, company unknown.
Paper:  Light green - DCWV, peach - Fox River, "letter" green- from a package I bought at a Paper Parachute garage sale, no idea if it is their product or another company.
Letters:  Sizzix Die- Monde de Blonde Decorative strip
Jewels:  Mark Richards
Butterfly stickers: Sandylion
Ink:  Ancient Page Pine by Clearsnap
Inside sentiment was printed on the computer.

P.S.  If you can't make out the inside of the card I think it will get bigger if you click on it.  I had to get creative to use broccoli as a theme on a birthday card!

P.S.S.  If anybody knows how to make all the page references hot links I would like a lesson!


  1. OMG... love it... very creative girl we have here!

    oh a quick lesson to make those links hot links. After you write down the url information in your post. Highlight the URL text, then do a Crtl+C (to copy the URL link) then you see a little chain link on the top of the text box you are writing all your post? Click that. It is going to pop up a little window that has a text box and it starts like http://
    there is where you are going to copy your URL. Make sure that you don't have two "http://http://" you want to copy your URL on top of the highlighted section. I hope this helps!
