Flight of the Butterfly...

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme this week has been chosen by the lovely Tracy Mouse and is 'Use a butterfly on your creation'. Our wonderful sponsors this week are Digistamp Boutique and Flonzcraft, so 2 chances to win :-) 

Flonz $20 store gift voucher Also 12% discount offered on purchases to those entering the challenge

So onto my DT card, I have gone a bit butterfly mad with butterfly papers, a gorgeous image from Digistamp Boutique and a little butterfly punchout... 

I then had a look at the finished card and thought the image looked a bit lonely so I added some little dots of liquid pearls around him 'a la Pop's' style and the card now looks like this...

I think it looks better, more interesting. Don't look too close at my dots, they are all different sizes, I need loads more practice at this ;-)

Image - from the Butterflies set from Digistamp Boutique coloured slightly with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Paper - Time Flies from Craftwork Cards
Lace - from a gorgeous friend x
