Butterfly Girl

WT580 was to USE A TREE on your card. 

Well, I am a bit of a nonconformist. I thought it would be amusing to use FAUX WOOD technique on my card. Because in my mind FAUX WOOD = FAUX TREE(albeit cut down)
But just in case the challenge police are out and about, I did use trees on my card you can see them on this panel. This panel is behind butterfly girl on my card. The wings of the bird are right behind her head.

 Pam let me pick all the challenges today. I chose, faux wood technique, burlap, twine and pearls. She said oh is that all, so I tossed in Butterfly. She joked about that being all? So I added wink of stella  to the list so the list was:
1. Faux Wood
2. Burlap
3. Twine
4. Pearls
5, Butterfly
6. Wink of Stella-gold
7. Recycled cardboard (since I was being ornery and doing wood which is cut down trees and the reason the challenge was given was to celebrate Earth Day, I thought I would toss, recycling on my card to make it up to our Earth.)

 I used wink of stella - gold on her dress and for her necklace. Can you see the faux wood behind butterfly girl?

I am entering Butterfly girl into the following challenges:
