Hi everyone from a rather dreary Bournemouth. Its still so cold here but it doesn't seem to bother the kiddies they've just come in off the trampolene saying its snowing. They say its going to be a little warmer at the weekend well I think its about time it was a lot warmer!!
Anyway, onto my card. I've used a Saturated Canary digi called Orchard and I've used a mixture of copics and promarkers to colour her. When I saw the sketch over on Sweet Sketch Wednesday I immediately knew what I wanted to do which is so unlike me as I do so dither!!! Anyway, when I saw it I thought yes I'll use acetate as I wanted the butterflies to look like they were actually flying in the air but wanted to see the paper behind so as to follow the sketch and this is how it turned out.

Papers: K & Company 'McKenna' all matted onto kraft
In the next piccie you can see the flowers and I love how they've turned out. I used a couple of old punches for these and just layered them up after moulding them a little with a ball tool. They are actually punched from vellum as are the butterflies.
When the card is open you can see on the left that I added another spellbinders rectangle and a sentiment just to hide the glue from the front panel.
Next is a bit of a close up of the adorable image and she was lovely to colour and I just dirtied up the edges with Tim Holtz 'walnut stain' distress ink.
