Soar like a Butterfly

This card won at Charisma Cards!!
This card won Top 5 at Crop Stop!!

I am completely and totally IN LOVE with the new Butterfly Dreams Collection from Magnolia. I adore each and every stamp, and want them all. Especially this little cutie, Hello Butterfly. I got this image from a friend, but think I love her so much I am gonna have to go out and buy the stamp. Isnt she just adorable???
For this card, I used October Afternoon Thrift Shop papers. I love the vintage colors and patterns of this paper, so pretty. I added Platinum stickles around all the edges of each panel for lots of sparkle and interest.
I colored Tilda with Copics
Skin - E00, E000, E11, R32
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Dress - B0000, B00, B01, B02, R29, R27, R24, R22, W3, W5
Boots - R29, R27, R24, R22, W3, W5
Butterfly - E57, Y11, Y00, Y15, Y13
Background - B0000, W00, W3, W1, W5

All the flowers on this card are Wild Orchid Crafts. I used a white Gardenia, which I airbrushed with B00 copic marker, then added Blue Rain Glimmer Mist, 25mm white roses painted with Scarlet Glimmer Mist, 15mm two tone blue roses, and 4mm yellow closed roses. I also added a red silk bow with a cream colored button in the center tied off with red floss. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket, distressed with Vintage Photo and Platinum Stickles. The Butterflies were punched using my Martha Stewart Monarch punch and I also added Platinum Stickles and some rhinestone gems to those. The corners of the card were finished off with more rhinestone gems.
The inside of the card is finished with more of the patterned paper and more of the red silk ribbon. I left it blank so that a sentiment could be added later.
I love the way this card came together, and I thank you for visiting me today, and for your lovely comments, as always! Have a great week.
