Butterfly Dreams

Hi again!  I'm back with a second quick post today to share another card I made for a couple of challenges I enjoy doing when I can find time.  I managed to finish this one in between other things and one of the challenges is ending today, so here I am.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Island Indigo and the sparkly patterned papers are from the DCWV Mariposa Stack.  The gorgeous image is Girl Flower Butterfly from Aurora Wings.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Gold Stickles to the little "bubbles" to match the gold glitter on the papers.  A bit of lace and a few pearls from my stash finished my card.
Here is a close-up of the image:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E50, E53, E57
Big flowers: R22, R35, R37, R46, R59
Blue flowers: B60, B91, B95, B97
Big butterflies: BG10, BG02, BG05, BG07, BG09, BG49
Small butterflies: YR12, YR15, YR18
Tiny leaves: YG01, YG25, YG67

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Aurora Wings Challenge #3 (butterflies)
Craft Your Passion #214 (pearls and lace)
Creative Fingers Challenge #36 (girly)

Thanks for stopping by again!  Have a wonderful evening and see you soon!
