Digi Doodle Shop Challenges #66 - Butterflies

Hello again!
My card this time is for this week's challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges where we have a theme of Butterflies. We want to see your butterfly papers, images, embellishments - anything you want to create so long as you include butterflies :0)

My card this week showcases this lovely image called "Daisy Girl".  I have coloured her with Promarkers and matted her onto pink card and some daisy patterned paper I have had lying around for ages waiting to be used up. I punched the edge of the card with a MS butterfly border punch and backed it with the pink card. I cut two single butterflies from white card using the MS single butterfly punch and coloured them with Promarkers to match the image. Four little pink pearls and a dark red ribbon complete the card.

Close up of butterfly.

The rest of the DT have created some stunning cards for your inspiration so be sure to take a look and then join us for this week's challenge. As usual, can't wait to see what you create.
Happy Butterfly Crafting!!
