One Stitch at a Time challenge #39


There's a great new challenge over at One Stitch at a Time for this week.  It's a nice easy one for you this time ....


Use your favourite colours 

So anything goes for this challenge, as long as you've used your favourite colours! 

For this challenge we are being sponsored by Robyn who is offering one lucky person a $10 voucher to her new shop - Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium.  There's more info about her shop on the challenge blog.



I love purple and green as a colour combo for card making so that's what I chose for my colour scheme. 
The image I have used is the lovely Butterfly Love from Stitchy Bear Stamps available in the shop here.  It is a beautiful image and I really enjoyed making this card.  It has been coloured with pro markers (lime zest, orchid and a blender pen) and I've added just a tiny bit of glitter sparkle on the ends of the wings.   The swirls are a Sizzlits die and the butterfly punch is by Tonic.  The polka dot paper is from Dovecraft and the paper roses are from my ever-growing stash of craft goodies!


I am going to enter this card into thee following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - I used their sketch
Little Red Wagon - Do it in 3's (3 Butterflies)
Sisterhood of Crafters - Birthday card
Something completely different - Wings

So, I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge and don't forget to have a look at the other DT blogs - they've come up with some great ideas for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by,

Amanda
