Butterflies and Sunshine

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! We are halfway through the week and so far, I'm surviving Jillian Michaels. I am SO sore though, I feel like I've been hit by a truck! :) Thanks for all your well wishes, I'll keep you posted on my progress :)




For my card today, I decided to use this adorable image from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This particular image is from Victoria Case and her name is Little Danni with Flutterby (named after my dear blogging friend Danni. I colored the image with copics (greens; G21, G24, G28; pinks: R81, R83, R85, R89; hair: E33, E35, E37; skin: E00, E01, E11). I cut the image out using my Nestabilities and then I sponged around the image with SU Bashful Blue ink. I added Stardust Stickles to the cherry on her dress, to the flowers, and to the butterfly, and I also added Glossy Accents to her eyes. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Regal Rose and Always Artichoke). The design paper is from DCWV's Nana's Nursery stack. For some finishing touches, I added pearls, butterflies (which I punched out using a Martha Stewart punch), a bow (tied with my Bow Easy), and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day! :)
