ccc for August. . . .

Here is the card I sent to Robyn in Australia for the August card chain challenge hosted by Deborah Nolan.



The die is a new one from Memory Box that my son bought for me while we were visiting Estes Park in Colorado.  There is a fabulous stamp store there; sure would be fun to live close to it!  I used distress inks to create the background and glued the die to it.  Added a tiny MB butterfly and then some gold stickles to the centers.  The embossing folder is from Darice.  Since I was mailing this to Australia, I kept the card fairly flat to avoid excessive postage.

My last entry to SSS's challenge of anything goes week!  BTW, Simon Says is hosting their fifth Stamptember event and I am excited to see what they have up their sleeve(s) for us.
