Winter's Butterfly

Morning folks!

Guess what? The sun is out again!! I could get used to this. . . !

Thank goodness for that, I managed to take a decent photo - the first for a while. You can actually see the shiny bits shining on the card!

I made this one for four challenges today. First of all, the sketch was provided by My Grafico. They have a DT call on at the mo, so nip over and take a looky at that!

The colour was inspired by the theme at La-La-Land - which is PINK, and at Penny's Challenge it is Winter, with ribbon, glitter and/or bling.

Then at Sophisticat they want to see ribbon and buttons. I hope this will do for that, as I only have one button, and the glittery ribbon bow.

The big snowflake shape is a medallion image that was a freebie from Fred She Said, which I printed twice, and cut out the centre bit. I added some Pebeo Touch metallic dots round it, for extra bling, and the button in the middle came from my Nan's old button stash.

I added loads of snowflakes along the curvy bit in the background, to which I added some extra glitter, and also added glitter to the sentiment. This is a quote I found on the internet. I used a snowy typeface for it. The ribbon is a glittery one from my stash. I finished with some snow writer at the bottom of the card.
