Briar rose butterfly

   I love butterflies, so when I saw these stamps and the set I used in yesterday's blog I just had to collect the pennies together for them. This is from another Chocolate Baroque collection and is called  Briar rose butterfly. We have a couple of 'bushes' which have self seeded themselves in our front garden and later in the year produce large bright red rosehips.
   I coloured it using Promarkers and matted and layered it onto pink core'dinations cardstock and white card. The stamped sentiment is from Flower Soft's Floral sentiment set 1.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafting With Dragonflies - CAS style card
