Flower Doodle

I made this card for Charlene in the Kit and Clowder Card & Colouring Swap, the theme of which is 'Friendship, Encouragement/Support, or Inspiration'.  I'm entering the Butterfly Challenge 'A for Aperture' challenge (I have chosen to use an aperture, together with anything (flowers and sentiment) amber (flower centres), apple green (leaves) and, of course, butterflies).  I'm also entering the Die Cuttin' Divas 'Random Acts of Kindness' challenge and the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge 'Friends',

6" x 6" white pearlescent card blank
Bugaboo 'Friend Flower Doodle' digi stamp
Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Rectangles' die
Copics and Promarkers
Lili of the Valley 'Heartfelt' paper
White pearlescent card
Wink of Stella

I resized the digi stamp and printed it onto pink Heartfelt paper.  I coloured the image with Copics (pinks and lemon) and Promarkers (greens).  I used the largest die to die cut the aperture from the card blank, trimmed the image to size and attached it to the rear.  I then cut a square of white card and attached it to inside of the card to cover the back of the paper.  To finish I highlighted the flowers and butterflies with a Wink of Stella.

This is the lovely card Charlene sent me for the swap.

A pretty digi stamp with a great complementary sentiment Kath and love the way you have coloured the foliage and flowers and the sweet butterflies and added some sparkle too. x

This is lovely. I initially thought this wouldn't pass our CAS guidelines but there is one main focal point and enough white space in that lovely frame to fit our challenge. Love that stitched edge to your aperture. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge, Anita x
