Butterfly Wishes

   I love butterflies and the lilac is just coming into flower so I wanted to make a card with a butterfly just balancing on lilac, although I'm not sure anyone would see butterflies this colour - at least not round here.
   I matted lilac core'dinations cardstock onto white card.
   Left hand panel: lilac flowers were stamped from Joanna Sheen's garden flowers collection and coloured using Promarkers. After dusting the edges with distress ink I matted the image onto dark purple core'dinations cardstock. A little glitter was applied to the flowers. The butterfly was stamped from Jayne Netley Mayhew colllection, coloured using Promarkers, cut out and attached using glue gel.
   Right hand panel: three butterflies from the same set as above were stamped and coloured using Promarkers. Again the panel was matted onto dark purple core'dinations cardstock. I then added a peel off sentiment.

   I wish to enter this card into the following challenges:
