Many Thanks Card

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: -Anything Goes/As You Like It (see below) You/Give Thanks and Shimmer

Sketch by 2Sketches4You

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!
