Today I have a card for my Mum - she LOVES Butterflies, and Purples and Pinks.... think I managed to cover all those!
Thanks Mum for... well you know what for. It's been a tough few weeks and you've really come through for me. I love you!
When I found out my friend Jules was a Repeat Impressions Design Team "Rock Star" I just HAD to join in with their first sketch challenge! And (after I'd finished swooning) I knew I HAD to enter the Sir Stampalot May Challenge for a chance to win the most amazing product pack!!
I just LOVE this butterfly image! It's the Gina K Hope is Faith set - just gorgeous - and my sweet friend Janice (Catcrazy) was kind enough to emboss some and send them to me, so they're all shiny and beautiful!
Hmmm... in fact I probably couldn't have made this card without Janice since she also gifted me the beautiful ribbon and pearls too!! Thanks Janice! ;)
I coloured the Butterfly with Copics (yes I'm now WELL & TRULY on that bandwagon!), and I tried a little distressing around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo. Not sure if I got this right, but it was a first attempt so at least I didn't swipe ink all over the card LOL!!
Both designer papers are from the DCWV Mariposa pack and the cardstock is Coredinations.
These are the challenges I'm entering this card for....
Repeat Impressions Sketch M510 (great sketch!)
Sir Stampalot May Challenge - Butterflies and Blossoms (BIG butterfly and pretty floral dp's)
Gina K Inspiration Challenge- INSPIRE23- Butterfly Garden (matched the photo inspiration perfectly!)
