Charlotte and Butterfly

Morning to all my blogging friends , and welcome to all my new followers x..

I saw this image and thought it was just gorgeous so had to buy it and several more from   there are some beautiful digi images on there and well worth a look .

I made this card last night , well there was nothing on tv and my sons had gone out so i made a mess of my living room and dining room while making this card lol.

I started with a plain white card blank , scored to make an a5 card , then matted the blue/green/red/and white flowers embossed and glittered card .

Then i embossed the aqua Tim Holtz cardstock, using the b side of the Mbossabilty  folder "Splendid" i coloured the dot in the middle of each daisy like flower with a red Promarker , and matted it onto the flowered card .

I cut the image using the largest of the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles (i love this dye its so pretty ) i coloured the background to the dye with distress ink Fired Brick . The image is called Charlotte and butterfly , it was so easy to colour in using my Promarkers and Flexmarkers .

I added a Birthday Wishes greeting with a ribbon and gem to the top right hand corner ,and a couple of tiles at the bottom left 4 U ,  some lace down the right hand side , leaves i cut on my trusty friend Cameo , the red flower was bought from Ebay . I placed gems in Charlottes hair , down the body of the Butterfly , in in 3 of the corners round the image , and along the bottom of the embossed aqua cardstock just above the edge i cut with my Martha Stewert punch .

The inside of the card has been decorated to match the front , i used a greeting stamp from LOTV saying" Wishing you a Magical Birthday"

I will be entering this card into the following challenges  --   Butterfly and Bows -- Punch drunk
