Butterflylove

It's me again! Today's card is features Butterflylove from Stitchy Bear Stamps this weeks sponsor for SMC. This is a little step out of the box for me as I don't normally do these types of images, but I really enjoyed coloring her. I knew that I wanted to try a darker card with her and when I sat down to color her I thought these papers would be perfect, so I tried to pick colors that would match well.

Here is a close-up. Those wings took me forever! They are a mixture of the lightests purples and grays and it took a long time to get them a way I liked them. I don't know if you can tell, but I have her placed with the lower backside of her dress in the frame, so it looks like she's walking out of it.
Would you believe I actually got the idea to put an open frame around her from my 6yr old son. He wanted to help me with my card, so I had him helping me go through my scraps to find something grayish and I found a couple of frames that made their way in there. I put the frames on my desk to put away later. After I was satisified with my findings I was just looking at everything and DS goes "I know, where's the girl?" then rifled through the papers to find her. Upon finding her he grabbed the frame and said"you can put her on...oh nope, she's too big." However he was on to something so I played around with the idea.

Well, I kept the card pretty simple since she has so much sparkle on her wings, so that about covers it. The frame and the words were cut with my circut...Storybook cart. I think the bling is Basic Gray and the papers are Glitz. Punch is MS. Hope you have enjoyed my card.
Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!

You should make cards like this more often! You rocked that image! I love the colours, and that frame is awesome! Think I need to get whatever it is that you used to make that! I love it! DS deserves an extra scoop of icecream!!
