ORANGE AND YELLOW..PINK AND BLUE..



Hello Everyone...

What an exciting few days I've had with Birthday celebrations lasting 4 days, I'm exhausted and very full..and still counting candles..lol..wonderful few days..

I'm here to share my card for FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAY  and our theme this week is "use a sentiment on the front of your card"....now we know that is not a difficult thing to do, I just needed to keep reminding myself to leave a gap and add one, as I dont add one very often...ok..ok...I do forget to add one..all the time.

So here is my card...and it is a Happy little Butterfly...sentiment stamp from a clear set with no name...




This image was a freebie from the internet....coloured with copics....not a vast amount as I only have one blue and one pink..but added lots of pearls on his wings....and his body was coloured with Faber Castell pencils...



There he is, all happy and cute...matted in the three colours...



The flowers were also coloured with copics and small black gems in the flowers centres..the MB border was cut three times and layered up to match the flowers and leaves and matt colours.



And the second side view, and have no idea why I did two...but it is here now...papers are MME 'nutmeg'..

So there you go...all done...off out for tea tonight with my Dad...more food, but this is the last one....then things can get back to normal...

Thanks for stopping by and any comment you may leave, really appreciate it..

Luv CHRISSYxx
