The challenge at Cuddly Buddly this week is to use bright colours and butterflies.

I have chosen the Down In The Flowers digi stamp by Lilyboo as my central image and coloured it with Copics.  Although I am slowly increasing my colours, I am still somewhat limited still, I only have one shade of green, one blue etc, so choosing which colours to use wasn't all that difficult ;)

Usually once I have coloured the image I will shuffle through my papers, both actual and digital and try and find one that I think will compliment the image, the two papers I used by Magnolia jumped out at me, the pink, yellow and green were perfect!  The edges are all roughed up with a distressing tool, except for the manila card stock which I inked with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.  The sentiment is by Whimsy and the butterflies are from Jenni B.

I didn't add much in the way of bling.  I am by nature a cornflake girl (the simple things in life are often the best), and the frog prince paper was so cute I didn't want to over shadow it.  Thanks for taking the time to look!
