Happy Birthday Katie

I made this card for Steve's niece's birthday.  I'm entering the Butterfly Challenge 'Spin the Wheel with the letter D' (I have used D for Dirt [hair], Denim Blue [clothes, butterfly, card and sentiment], Dark Salmon [roses, clothes and butterfly], Digi Image, Die Cut [banner], Dimension [matting and layering] and a Butterfly).  I'm also entering Ally's Angels 'Butterflies', Crafty Cardmakers 'Birthdays' and Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenges.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Bugaboo 'Butterfly Rose Girlz' digi stamp
Die: My Favourite Things 'Fishtail Flags'
Colouring: Promarkers
Card; Denim blue matt, white silk
Paper: Green mottled 
Other: Computer generated sentiment 'Harrington' font, Wink of Stella

I trimmed the green paper, layered it onto blue card and attached it to the card blank.  I resized the digi stamp and printed it onto white card.  I trimmed the image and coloured it with Promarkers before layering it onto blue card and attaching it to the left side of the card. I printed the sentiment onto white card and die cut it using the smallest fishtail flag.  I placed the same die onto blue card and drew around the outside edge to make the matt for the sentiment.  After layering the sentiment onto the blue card I attached it to the lower edge of the card with Pinflair glue to give extra dimension.  To finish I highlighted the butterfly, roses, hair and clothes with a Wink of Stella.
