Fly Away -- Guest Designing at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday

Today is a REALLY big day!  It is the last day of my work career.  After 33 years working at the nursing home here, another 3 years in other jobs before I took this one, I am retiring TODAY!  Starting tomorrow, I am RETIRED!  I never thought I'd actually get to this point in my career.  It's come earlier than planned due to health issues from cancer/chemo complications, but nonetheless, I am retired and ready to enjoy life!

Today is also a big day because I'm guest designing at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenges.  I love playing at The Outlawz, and when given the opportunity to guest design again this month, especially using my favorite All Dressed Up images, I said, "Yes, yes, yes!!"

Today's challenge is Anything Goes (no twist this week).  Here's what I created using Fly Away Butterfly:

I colored Fly Away Butterfly with Copic markers, then used 2 sizes of Spellbinders dies to cut her out.  The card base was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo 3 with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The gold foil butterflies were also cut out on my Silhouette. The gold foil trim is from Close To My Heart. 

The Anything Goes Thursday Challenge at The Outlawz goes all week.  I so hope you can join in the fun!  The Outlawz has both site wide and challenge prizes, depending on the challenges.  

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- May Linky Party
Not Just Cards -- ATG
