For today’s card I've used one of Cathy Delanssay's new stamps called "Fee 2". I've also used the new "Fluttering By" Sentiments (with the included butterflies!) by Simonne Clay Designs, and "Notables 7 Die" by Raindrop Echo Designs.


I coloured the image with Copic markers, and sponged around the edge with Distress Ink 'Antique Linen' for a softer look.

The papers are from the Sweet Shoppe Designs "Vintage Harbor Blossom" digital kit, and the frame around the image was cut on my new Silhouette Portrait, using a cut file from the Silhouette Online store (Design #59022).
 
The sentiment is stamped in Memento 'Rich Cocoa', sponged around the edge and framed with matching Notables 7 diecut. I stamped, coloured, and fussy cut 4 butterflies (that are included in the fabulous "Fluttering By" sentiment set), and double layered them on the card to give dimension. I finished with a die cut butterfly, flowers, pearls, and a sweet butterfly charm!

Hope you like it!
See you again on Friday for another new release card!
