Challenge #7

Woot Woot Challenge #7 Look at me Go now! HA HA!

So my inspiration started with the Sketch Challenge at MoJo Mondays.  It really gets me thinking outside of my usual projects!  Then I headed over to Digi Darlas to see what's up for this week, it was all about buttons (I really need to improve my button collection I have decided... well at least my flowers are 'bursting' with buttons! :) )  I do like to really make it interesting by trying to incorporate a few challenges and still make a decent card.  So I threw in the 3B's over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  Blue, Bling and a Butterfly!   And another fav site Flutterby Wednesday  where anything goes with some wings!

So here it is hope you like it!
Ingredients
Bazzil Bling paper for the base
Spellbinders squares
Scraps for the background papers (embossed with butterflies, as this was a larger card I passed it through twice!  I was pretty happy with the results)
White Flowers, airbrushed to match (BG05,BG09) with bling coloured to match (B99)
Image from Digital Darlas, one of the amazing freebies! :)
Copics
Dress/Hat BG01, BG02, BG05, BG09, B91, B97,B99, BG10, BG13, B15
Leaves YG11, YG13, YG17
Fence E35, E47, E44, BG02, BG05
Skin E000, E00, E51, E34
Flowers Y00, Y06, Y04
and of course my colourless blender... I really need to learn to colour in the lines!

Things I was happy with
- Loved how I was able to get the background embossed in a two pass method
- Happy about using up some scraps!
- Love the airbrushed flowers!
- I picked out my paper first then my markers (usually I do it the other way around and it can be a challenge.  I knew with blues It can get interesting matching them up so I decided to start with the paper and I am really happy with the way it turned out!)


Things I would do differently
- I may put a sentiment where the flowers are the next time... but I wasn't sure what I was going to use the card for just yet... this way I can just put the sentiment inside when I decide! :)
- I think some lace around the outside border would have been cool but I didn't have any small enough (white then airbrushed of course! LOL)

It's spring break here so the kids were embossing scrap paper with my cuttlebug and big kick... they had fun (and they are hired!) LOL
