Butterfly Hair


 If this isn't a perfect image for thinking "Spring"...   It's from Andrea at SheepSki Designs and our new monthly challenge starts today.  This is on the new challenge blog, not on the Facebook page, and it will start on the first of the month, each month.  This month, we have an "Anything Goes" theme and you can use any image to enter.  You can review all the guidelines on the new blog site.

     On this card, I did something I always mean to do but usually forget - I chose my dp and CS before I started coloring the image.  I colored it with my ProMarkers, then cut it with a stitched die from Cheery Lynn.  I matted it with turquoise CS.

     Next, I cut all three of my dp into banner flag shapes so that the shape would be repeated and then matted them with more of that same turquoise CS.  All of those flowery papers are digital papers.  I layered those onto a pink card base and wrapped the front with sheer-and-satin ribbon I found in my stash.  I used a scrap of flowered ribbon to tie the bow and added both the bow and the image piece to the card front.  Finally, I printed the sentiment, hand cut it, matted it, and added it to the card.

     I hope we're going to see you playing along in our new blog challenge this month.  You can still continue to play in the SheepSki Facebook challenge, too.  It starts on the 20th of each month and that one requires that you use a SheepSki Designs image.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

I just LOVE that image and your design is fabulous. My finches often try to style my hair, but they don't do such a good job of it.

Beautiful! I always try to have my colors and papers chosen before hand and succeed about .0000000001% of the time. Your card is lovely, Connie. Wonderfully planned with fantastic designer papers and great sketch! As always, your coloring is amazing! Hugs, de

I should take a leaf out of your book NanaConnie and try it this was for a change. I always end up paper shuffling every time I make a card :D
Gorgeous creation, love the colours and layout
