Sentimental Sundays challenge 192 - use pastel colours for a special woman

Hello everyone

well this challenge at Sentimental Sundays fell well, its my lovely Moms birthday on the 9th so what a perfect opportunity to make her a pretty card!

Our fab sponsor this week is

with an amazing prize of 7 free digis, Ladies (and gents of course) it must be worth thinking ahead for those special ladies in your lives and make them something to enter our challenge.  If you are stuck fro inspiration, please do hop over to Sentimental Sundays and check out the amazing DT team entries!

Firstly I apologise for the photo quality - I dropped one of my lamps and broke the bulb.  I'm awaiting a replacement, so it was taken in the best light I could get.

I used Butterfly silhouette I imported it into craft artist 2 and re-coloured it a dark mauve.  I then copied it twice more, each time making the shade of butterfly lighter and slightly smaller.  I then printed them all out on velum, and glittered the wings.

While the ink was drying on the velum, I took another digi kit (butterfly dream i think?) and used an embellishment for the background - coloured it in the same tones, and also added a digi doodle border I found on a scrapbooking website recently. Added the sentiment and the background was printed.  Finally I shaped and layered the butterfly used pink stickles for the body and voila.  (and not a promarker in sight for once!!)

We'd love to see you entries, so please stop by, and if you've ended here - please leave me a message so I know you've been!

Thanks to you all
