RIC #15--Take Two

This happened before....sometimes I got overly inspired by the photo and I ended up making two or more projects! This is the case with Runway Inspired Challenge. This was my 2nd take. I had so many ideas and I just HAD to make another one! I am also entering this card for the Congratulations Card Challenge over Moxie Fab World (details here).
you did it
Again, I am stuck with the paper-weaving idea. This Hello Card was my 2nd attempt. You can see my first card if you are up to it! And finally I decided to stamp my own plaid! I know I am very weak when it comes to card-making....I can't stop playing (LOL)!

I needed few supplies for making this card and I am proud to share what I used! I also used Crackled Accent on the butterfly to add some interest.
Thank you for the kind comments that you bestow on me so tirelessly!
