Butterflies and Roses

Hi there 🙂 It’s already the first Sunday in May (although it certainly doesn’t feel like it here…BRRRR), which means it’s time for me to share my first inspiration project for the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge this month. Our theme, as well as the blog’s theme, this month is “Lovely Lace”. Most of us have a piece of lace – or two – or two hundred – in our stashes, and lace really compliments these images beautifully. I used Butterfly Charm for my card, and colored it with my Copics.

I had picked out the background print before starting to color, which helped me coordinate (this is something new for me, and I’m still quite excited at how slick it works for matching things up, lol). I found a cute card sketch on Pinterest, and dug around to find scraps to make up the other layers. The tan piece was embossed with a Spellbinders embossing folder. The lace was both the perfect color and length for my card…..woohoo!!! I added some roses that went with the image beautifully and die cut a butterfly with a Tattered Lace die. A few pearls that I colored to match the color scheme and a small stamped sentiment finished this project off.

I’d like to enter the following with this card:
