Playing With The Butterflies

The image is from Digi Doodles and I thought it was just to sweet not to purchase. I colored it a while ago then realized that I had no paper to match. I guess purple is not a color I purchase to often. I am not sure why since I do like the color. So I ordered some paper off the web, where I do most of my shopping, lol

I used my sakura glitter gel pen to add a bit of shimmer to the butterflies and flowers. I do have some copic glitter pen, but find they do not add shimmer near as well. If you are wondering which ones to purchase, I would go with sakura since they work so much better.

Here is the finished card. I used the charms for lack of ideas to embellish that area. Do any of you feel that you need to fill in every open area? I sure do. I have to remind myself that the paper is patterned and I do want it to show, lol.

Again I used my favorite blade from the Purple Cow cutter. This time I used it on all of the edges, including the bottom card layer.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
My Partner In Craftin Crime: layer it up
My time To craft: spots

Digis With An Attitude: spring has sprung
Stamping Vacation: anything associated with a cocoon
