I have been wanting to use this beautiful digi from Stitchy Bear Stamps called Butterfly Love for awhile now. You can find it here.
I plan to enter this card into the following challenges:

I colored my image with Prismacolor Pencils and a Blender. I just love how this little Butterfly/Fairy is like a flower-so I tried to keep that idea while I colored her. I used some patterned paper from Basic Grey as my inspiration-it has shades of brown, olive green, red and pink. I used it to mat my image after sanding, inking and distressing everything with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used my cuddlebug to cut out a Label shape from Tim Holtz Alterations/Sizziz and used that as a template to cut three sides of my card. I adhered some olive green ric rac and then assembled the rest of the pieces to match the above sketch. I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen then for Sparke and Shimmer I added Crystal Stickles to her wings!
