The Sugar Bowl (62) - Sketch/Summer
Wild Orchid (26) - Shabby Chic Friendship
Charisma Cardz (25) - White + One
The Rainbow Lady (158) - Digi Day
Stampin' For The Weekend (11) - My Favourite Things (Colour/Image/Papers/Flowers)
Totally Papercrafts (72) - Spots & Stripes
Daring Cardmakers - Old (Flowers)/New (Image)/Borrowed (Sketch)/Blue (Papers)

I couldn't put all my favourite things onto just one card as I have so many and it would have to be a very big card... I do love the colour blue so started with that and this is what emerged. Not sure if I've got the 'Shabby Chic' bit right yet but I shall keep practicing. The image has been coloured with promarkers and the butterflies have been punched from vellum for a change. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Card Recipe

A lovely card and you have coloured the image beautifully. I think I really like the vellum butterflies too though I almost never use vellum. They are subtle and don't detract from the main image. Kate x
