#133 Butterfly or Buttons

This week's challenge at One Stitch at a Time is Butterfly or Buttons. My image is Fairy Fae by Teri of Delicious Doodles over at Stitchybear Digital Stamps Shop. Fae is beautiful and was a joy to colour. I used my Promarkers of course! The card blank is a large square by Craft UK. After colouring the image I cut it out with my x cutter and matted it on to pink card. All the pink card is from Papermill, two different shades of pink to match the roses on the beautiful paper which is in a pad from Create and Craft. The pad is actually by Arts and Crafts Direct and is called Quintessential Country Garden. I've had it for a while but it's the first time I've used it. They are A4 sheets and it's a shame to cut it down to fit a card. The butterflies are cut with my Spellbinders dies. The pearls for the bodies of the butterflies are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the wire for the antennae is by Create and Craft. I blinged her wings with Stickles.

The prize structure is listed on the challenge blog, please check there for details.
