Here is my interpretation of the challenge.  I used a hero arts stamp called "Dandelion" and embossed it with white embossing powder.  My layers are three different colors of blue's by Stampin Up.  I punched some blue butterfly's with the Martha Stewart punch and added some rhinestones in the middle.   I finished the card off with Stampin Up's ribbon and button.  So get started with your project so we can see your interpretation of this challenge!  You can upload your project here Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge.
