CCM Challenge 51 - Butterflies

This week at Crafty Cardmakers the theme, chosen by Melly, is everyone's favourites - Butterflies!

I've chosen Tilda this week to assist with my butterflies! Both she and her dog have one and there are several fluttering in the meadow behind them!  In case that wasn't enough, there are two die-cut butterflies crusted with stickles top left and a goldtone charm.
My lovely fabric-look papers were from C&C, believe it or not, one of their rare bargains.
You can't see much of the base paper, which is a shame because it's quite lovely, with fairies, butterflies and pink bindweed on a textured ground.
I coloured Tilda, her dog and the meadow in a mix of Copics, Marvy-le-Plume and Stickles!


  1. This is gorgeous Eileen, love the design and all those fabby embellies.

  2. Oh honey I just love this! As soon as I saw it on the team blog I had a sharp intake of breath, and let out a stream of ohhhs! STUNNING.

    You've really brought that Maggie summer background to life and Tilda herself is coloured equally beautifully, and all those GORGEOUS little touches. One of my favourite cards of the month!

    Better stop gushing now before I sound like a creative stalker.
