Harebell butterfly

   I have some blue bell shaped flowers in my garden at the moment and this image reminds me of them, although the butterflies around here are not quite so bright!
   The backing paper has been in my stash for sometime. I'm gradually using the paper up but it has a habit of growing twice as fast. I cannot understand why! I matted and layered it onto dark blue mirri card and white card.
   The image is from Chocolate Baroque's harebell butterfly collection and I coloured it using Promarkers. I cut out the shape to reflect the design on the patterned paper and then matted it on core'dination cardstock before fixing to the card with glue gel.
    I finished the card with red gems.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges;
   I Love Promarkers - things with wings
   Stamping Sensations - summer blooms
   Digi Sketch - in the garden
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - anything goes
   Crafting from the Heart - anything goes

   Scribble and Scrap - anything goes
   Paper Pretties - red, green, yellow, blue

What a beautiful card! I love harebells! (I can see some growing on the bank across the road from my craftroom just now!) The backing paper goes perfectly and the colours are gorgeous. Thank you for sharing it with us at Stamping Sensations for our Summer Blooms challenge.
