Let us Dance In The Sun,

Morning! well what a pants weekend... well not completely pants, but the weather sure has been, typical that Amelia is back at school and the sun is shining now! but how long will it last? So what have you all planned for the week? I plan on making a few more cards as well as getting the order of wedding invitations finished and well thats about it!

So anyway yes I have been playing again, seem to be on a mission at the moment... I have been playing with the beautiful Cerridwen from Saturated Canary, she is defiantly one of my favourites at the moment!!

This is actually a 6x6 card... shock horror as normally my cards have been 8x8 so I am somewhat impressed with myself! The papers are from Prisma the Fairy Belle collection I purchased them last week from here (with a touch of Kraft behind each layer), ohhh and my mum found a small bit of gauze in the cupboard that she gave to me so I added some of that too!  The sentiment is from the Whimsy Spring Letter Seals, it should go in a circle but I thought it was perfect just like it is and I thought the wording was perfect with the image! 

She was coloured using copics;

Dress/Butterflies - R81, R83
Skin - E000, E00, E02, R20 cheeks, R81 lips, G43 eyes
Hair - E33, E35, E37

I used a combo on the hair that I haven't used in a while... I know what I haven't used it, cause I was avoiding re-filling the pen... oh am I in a bit of a 'inked state' today! Oh well... It will go in time! 

I also distressed the edges using my Stampin Up Distressing Tool and Tim Holtz Viantge Photo (Yes i let him near my work again but I was very careful this time! Once was enough on messing things up!)

You can see the gauze better in this photo, Im not sure on it, I know a friend of mine is sending me some cheesecloth so I am now intrigued to see if there is a difference at all?

Yes I had to add some added butterflies, they were punched from Kraft card stock and distressed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and then some diamond stickles to finish! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
