Sweet Pea Butterfly Girl

Hello all, I'm back again. I've really been enjoying my recent seems such a long time since I posted regularly! I'm getting pretty much up to date with all the September birthdays...yay  Only a couple more to go...and I have one of them made already, just need to blog it :)

Today's card is for a friend and will be going in the mail on's a tad late as her birthday is on Monday...should have been posted on Friday!! It's been sitting here for a couple of weeks but I forgot to mail it :(

This is one of the beautiful rubber stamps from Sweet Pea, by Ching Chou Kuik. It belongs to my lovely friend, Helen. I stamped a couple of these when I stayed with Helen earlier in the year (or was it last year??)  I know I've had her in my stash for quite some time!

She has been coloured with Copics and I've used a few Prismas on her hair to highlight. As usual I've used my trusty glitter pens to highlight areas, as well as SU Crystal Effects for the butterfly body. I had extra images stamped of the butterfly so have fussy cut one and layered it over the base image. The wings have been bent up a little for dimension. The DP is all by Kaiser from one of my fave 6" paper pads. CS is SU. The strip panel  behind the image is embossed with a butterfly folder. Across the bottom I've used a lovely little tulle trim I picked up ages ago from our local craft shop, Regal Press.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

CMC Copic Challenge - Fall Colours
Papertake Weekly - A Hazy Shade of Autumn
Digital Tuesday - Things with Wings
Love to Create - Things with Wings

Thanks for looking.........have a wonderful day :)
