Butterfly Kisses


A good friend ask me to make a card for her grandaughter who will soon be six. Aimee has the most amazing eyelashes that are to die for. (For us girls it would take half a tube of mascara to get them the length hers are.) Whenever I see her she gives me 'butterfly kisses' with her eyelashes.  I never knew that's what a butterfly kiss is!

I've coloured this beautiful Butterfly Fairy by Chris Dark of Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps with a mixture of Copic Ciao and Promarker pens.  The paper is from the beautiful DCWV Linen Closet and the swirl is from Marianne Designs, pearls from my stash.  The card is 8" x 8" from Create and Craft tv

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges

Creative Card Crew Challenge # 51 - A Colour Combo
Tanda Stamps Tanda-teaser-147 Extra-large

The challenge over on 365 Cards was to make a card that is a reflection of yourself.  Well, I flutter around like a fairy when making my cards and I am definitely a bit of a butterfly flitting from one card to another, usually about four or five on the go at anyone time.

It has taken me back in time - "butterfly kisses" - I must remember it when I next see my friend's little girl. What a darling card you have made for her.
