Hello Little Butterfly !

Hi there....how is your week going?  Mine has been pretty nice and the weather here has just been beautiful !
I think this little image is one of my all time favorites....and then as soon as I seen it she reminded me of the day at the Botanical Gardens with Suzanne where a little butterfly landed on her and hitched a ride for a bit.  I could not resist and had to make this for Suzanne and now that she has received it, I can share it with you.

My image is colored with copics
Hair - E97 E99 and Y21
Skin - E00 E000 R20
Dress - YG61 and YG63
Apron - RV32 and RV34
Boots - E33 E35 and E37

the inside

I have used numerous punches and dies....fiskars butterfly border, MS butterfly punch, Magnolia vintage tag, nestabilites scalloped oval, and Marianne swirls....I did not write down the beautiful DP's I am sorry, and then there is the lace....thanks Gail for suggesting it...I think it is just the perfect touch !  I added some stickles to the butterfly and the swirls, I inked the edges with a really pretty stamping up ink rasberry I believe. I hope you have enjoyed my little card .
