Shine

I saw this pretty image, and the sentiment and had to put them on a card : )

 The image by Create with TLC was colored with Distress Markers and Copics. I loaded the butterflies with shimmer using a Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen. I am using up my stash- the DP is Basic Grey Euphoria. The image was cut with the trimmer and I used the corner rounder on the edges. The sentiment was punched with a 1" punch, and the stitched circle (blue) is by Die-Versions. I used 2 sizes of sequins to add my last sketch component. I decided to add some clouds, so punched a scalloped oval from SU out of scrap, and sponged on Soft Sky. The Soft Sky looked gray. so I dotted on some Copic marker along the edge of the punched scallop.

I used the Sketch from  Sassy Sketcharinos. I am also playing over at Cards in Envy- as this is a card for a Young lady : )    Crafty Calendar challenge wants Things with Wings. Just Us Girls wants Butterflies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous coloring on the pretty image. Really like the design layout with the trio of 'ribbons' over the design paper. This is so pretty with this particular image. Good luck with the cleanout. I know this is not a fun effort,but it's one that we all have to do at one point. Take care. TFS & Hugs
