Butterfly on a Stem

This is my DT card for the new Crafting for all Seasons challenge:

This time we have a sketch for you to follow:

I have sort of kept to the sketch, but rather than use a rectangle I used corners (because I wasn't clever enough to make the rectangle fit).  This week we have three great sponsors:


Pop over the the Crafting for all Seasons Challenge blog to see what the fab prizes are.

I chose to work with the fab image Butterfly on Tall Stem from the Dots and Delights Series by Pink Cat Studio and coloured it with FlexMarkers,  I added a few gems to the flowers and butterfly wings.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card that I have decorated to match:


Image:  Pink Cat Studio - Butterfly on Tall Stem
Papers:  Shery K Designs - Tempting Mega Paper Pack (free)
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals, Marianne CreaTables LR0164, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Embellishments:  ribbon, button, gems and pearl flowers from stash
