PTI's Papercrafting Alphabet

Sorry for another post today but I'm trying hard to keep up with the celebration challenges going on over at PTI. Today's challenge was using the alphabet and your last name, with each letter representing a particular task. I used the first four letters of my last name, so mine were:
"N" ~ using something "NEW"
"O" ~ Ombre
"R" ~ Rounded corners
"T" ~ Twine

Here's my card:

The butterfly coverplate is new and I had yet to use it so I inked up a piece of cardstock using ombre colors and used the coverplate to cut it. I then fussy cut one of the butterflies out of that. I rounded the bottom corners and added some twine and sequins. The sentiment from Phrases and Praises is embossed in silver and the leaves are cut using a die from Songbirds.

I wasn't too sure how I was going to like this challenge but it turned out to be really fun for me! I've had such a fun time seeing everyone's creations during this celebration and just wanted to thank everyone at PTI for all their hard work in making this such a fantastic anniversary!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
