Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well yesterday was such a disappointment weatherwise it was dull and so chilly!  I had a lovely day though colouring some images and getting used to the Spectrum Noirs, the new generation.  I must say that after the first ones these are so much better and I love the shape of them too.

I coloured in this image by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff called Poppies, a treat to myself!


1. 7 x 7 square cream card.
2. First layer is printed poppies from MCS Paper Craft Library Flowers Disc which I have wrapped lace around before matting and layering onto the base card.
3 I cut out gold pearlescent card using Spellbinder's Labels 11 Die
4. Printed the image onto Neenah Card and coloured with my Spectrum Noirs, I then cut out with Labels 11 and distressed the edges with Dew Drops Brilliance Gold ink.
5 To finish off I added a sentiment, a double gold ribbon bow. The butterfly was made using Martha Stewart mould and coloured with Dew Drops Brilliance Red Ink.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
