Blossom & Butterflies...

I have made this card for the Sir Stampalot challenge blossom & butterflies. Have included a fairy as well as she is new and felt she fitted in with my design. I have just purchased some promarkers to have a play with, quiet like the effect but need to practise but not a bad first attempt me thinks.... This was my second attempt at the bottom part of the card as I didn't like it and my husband said it was to fussy. So simplfied it in the end.

I used:
Stamps -  Liliy of the Valley - Fairies on tiptoes, Whiff of Joy - Swirls (spring 2009 kit), My Minds Eye - Swirls, Dovecraft - Solid butterfly with swirl

Promarkers - Lavender, Lilac, Amethyst, Slate, Caramel, Sandstone, Buttercup, Moss & Pear Green

Nestabilities - Big Scallop Circle Lg

Woodcraft - Mini butterfly punch

Papers from stash and scrap box

Linen thread and button from stash

Happy crafting and thank you for visiting. Nicky xx
