DV #128 Girlie

Happy Easter everyone. Today I am sharing a card I made for our challenge over at Dream Valley. Today’s challenge is entitled ‘Girlie’ so all your lovely feminine projects will be welcome. We are sponsored by the fabulous All Dressed Up, and it is their gorgeous image, Flyaway Butterfly, that I have used for my card.

DV 128 Girlie

I coloured my image with copics, and then added some glitter pen to the butterly and her hairband of flowers.

The background is a Sheena Douglass embossing folder which, after embossing, I picked out the flowers and coloured with watered down Color Burst to match the colours in the image. I also went over them with the same glitter pen I used for the image.

The butterflies are a Joycrafts Die, which I die cut from some card I had painted over with some of the colours I used to paint the background flowers.

Pink shimmer ribbon and pink mirri heart paper which I used for matting from my stash.
