Craft Mania Butterflies and Bows

Card Mania has invited me to stay for more challenges : )  I am thrilled, as I am working on the Kit and Clowder coloring class, and look at this beautiful image I got to 'practice on' this week from The Paper Shelter. 
  The theme this week is Butterflies and Bows. The DP is digi and also from Paper Shelter, the sponsor for the challenge and a perfect fit! I had fun coloring her- and her fab hair, and will be printing out more of this image for my coloring trials.......  It will be fun to have a before and after as I learn more about coloring using the same image.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

 I have been listing all of the Copics I use for my learning as I revisit images 'later' I progress through the coloring class......  Copics Used: Hair- E29, E25, E23, E31, Flowers and leaves: RV21, RV23, RV29, Y06, Y13, Y15, Y17, YG06, YG13, YG17. Butterflies- B21. B23, B24. Skin R000, R02, E000, E00, E02, E11. Plus C2
 I sponged around the die with SU Blue Bliss.  I also did a Zig-Zag stitch around the edge of the card, and I sewed the lace and ribbon together with a Zig Zag stitch right onto the card stock.
 The Flowers and the rhinestones are Prima. The Beaded Pin is by Pinque Peacock.
