This is the card I put in the Starter Kit Contest. I kind of took the "only what came in your kit" literally. That means no scissors, paper cutter, sponges, etc! I printed out what came in my kit, put only that on the table and worked from there. I folded and ripped the paper for the card, and ripped out all the flowers and butterflies. I don't ever recommend doing that though...my fingernails are sore! For the sponging effect I crumpled up some very vanilla until it was soft and rubbed the colors on. I also did that on the edge of the flowers, stems and butterflies so the ripped edges didn't stand out as much.
