Challenge 48 - Picky! Picky!

This month's "Get Picky" picks are:
Amy - Anything brown
Nat - use 5 different patterned papers
Elin - use splashes of paint
Mandy - 5 lines of journaling
Cheryl - Tulle/Mesh/Burlap
Sara - Butterflies
Kim - Denim
I have used a splash of paint, five lines of journaling, brown and butterflies.

I used 5 patterned papers, 5 lines of journalling, tulle/mesh (lace ribbon), butterflies, denim (misting with Blue Denim spray) and brown. The only element I missed was the splashes of paint.

Think I have used everything i must...:) I love the Picky challenges,even when it's sometimes hard!
Used a pic of my favorite flower ,I love the colors and it's just a beauty!!
Thanks for stopping by,hope you all will play this challenge!!

So I used 5 pieces of patterned paper (well 6 if you count the background paper), the splashes of paint, butterflies, denim (the letters are made of denim fabric), and I used brown tulle so I combined those two element together. The only thing I didn't use were the 5 lines of journaling.

This is one of the first times I didn't make everything on the list! :(  Unintentional though.  Believe it or not my brown and pattern papers are were there.  The flowers are made up of the different pattern papers (some were brown) but then it didn't quite look right so I misted and the brown was gone!  lol  The denim makes up the border and petals, my mesh is Gauche Alchemy punchinella, I have the 5 lines of journaling and 1 butterfly (2 if you count the one underneath. I splattered white paint and I think that does it!

For this Get Picky challenge, I decided to make a birthday card. This is meant for my father-in-law, who is celebrating a birthday this month. I used 5 separate patterned papers from Echo Park's This & That Charming Collection. The stamp is from The Greeting Farm, which I colored with my Copics. I also used burlap, splashes of paint, the color brown, and made the little guys denim colored.
