Butterfly Extravaganva with Flourish

 Hello and happy day to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.  We continue to have wet and cold weather here but I don't care.  I did a lot of colouring in the week and need to dedicated time to making up some cards.  Life is hard.

List of Materials used to make this card  :o)

Fabulous image from Woopsi Daisy Sheet 342.  I follow the Whoopsi Daisy blog and when this sheet was posted I fell in love with this image and one of the others and had to have it.  Watch this space for the other image which is adorable.

Image printed onto Joanna Sheen Elegance Satin Card and coloured using Promarker, Flexmarker Pens and Prismacolour Pencils.  Chalks have been used to colour the sky and all edges have been distressed with ink.  The ribbon is white seam binding and I have dyed this using the ink to match the card.

The card base has been punched using my Martha Stewart punch and the image mounted onto fabulous Spring Delight  digital papers from Bearly Mine Designs.  This has been printed onto Joanna Sheen Elegance Satin Paper and the quality of the image is fabulous.  I have also used a die cut butterfly panel which I recently purchased.  This has also been distressed and is glittered.

Magnolia Die Cut Butterflies have also been used to decorate the card cut from Core'dinations Glitter Card.  The flowers are fabric and from Marianne Designs and a gorgeous gem flourish has been used.  I have found some lovely little beaded flourishes in my stash which I had forgotten about and this has been used to decorated the ribbon.

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges :o)

Image showing the inside of this card.  I have again used the fabulous Bearly Mine Design  Paper and have created a little pocket to hold a greeting tag - You're so Special....  Further inked ribbon has been used.  On the other page I have mounted a 3d daisy stamped image on a Spellbinder Die.  Doilies from my stash have been Ink Stained and used.  Also further Magnolia Butterfly glitter die cuts.

Thank you so much for reading this post.  I hope you like my card.  Sending warmest wishes to you all.
