Catch a Butterfly




Good Morning Everyone, I hope your Saturday has started well. I wanted to show you a card I made for my friend. It was her Grandaughters 8th Birthday and the spec she gave me was butterfly's and pretty.  So this is the end result.

I used a Sugar Nellie stamp designed by Elizabeth Bell and it's called catch a butterfly.  Isn't she adorable. I used promarkers and Derwent water colour pencils. The sky was coloured with TH broken china distress inks and the little meadow she is standing on is a tiny stamp I have which is perfect for just around her feet.


I used pink petticoat and papermania papers. some flowers, gauze ribbon, Marianne D's small butterfly and a wee chipboard flower. The sentiment was computer generated.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Elphine House Challenge:  You must use an Elizabeth Bell stamp and the theme this week is Pink and Blue.
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Theme is "HOW OLD"  you use a number/age  on your creation this week.
Card Makin Mamas Challenge: Would like to see a Birthday creation this week.
Just Tracy's Craft Challenge:  Would like to see Birthday's this week
Little Darlings Challenge:  Would like something Girly
Dutch Dare Challenge: Would like something for the Kids this week
