Big hugs....

Hi, Ive had a lovely day crafting as the kids watched films with their Dad, reasonably peaceful too, strangely!!
The card that I have to share today is a sweet image from Elizabeth Bell, I love these images they are so nice to colour.  I finally cut into one of my Pion design papers, pink butterfly, let me tell you it wasnt easy, I kept searching through all my other pads and sheets to try and find something else but it had to be this one it just suited my colours and the image, so after much sweating and stress I managed it (but only just lol !!!). Ive used bazzill bling cardstock for matting and layering , for the cheery lynne swirl die and the leaves. The flowers were cut from first edition papers, hand rolled and finished with a pearl. I them slapped on some iridescent medium around the edges and the flowers. Its a lot more twinkly IRL.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges,

Allsorts - free and easy
Cupcake craft - shabby sparkle
Totally papercrafts challenge - bling it up (iridescent medium)

Thanks for dropping by
