Butterfly Fairy

Today 365 Cards is challenging you to an "Opposites Attract" challenge. Make a card using 2 main colors, one that you love to use and one that you hate to use, or don't use a whole lot. One of the colors I use a lot for projects is blue and I rarely use orange, so I used those two colors on this card. Not to mention that blue and orange really are opposites on the color wheel. I used this week's sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for the layout of the card.
I used a digi image from Stitchy Bear Stamps. I colored it using Prismacolor pencils. I made the card 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used scalloped circle punches by Fiskars and an EK Success punch for the butterfly. I punched the butterfly first and then centered it in the smaller scalloped circle. I left a sentiment off so that it could be used for just about anything, just tailor the inside message.

  3. Love that little butterfly fairy! You colored her wonderfully. How'd you get that texture on the dress? I use prisma's too but that is very cool!
