Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 13 - Kim's Sketch

Hi everyone, a card today for Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 13 which this week is to follow a great sketch designed by Kim, thanks Kim, I really enjoyed working with your sketch. Hope you can join us this week and there's some great inspiration from my design team friends to get you started on the blog.

I've used my new 'Butterfly Fairy' image which will be available soon in the digi shop and coloured her with pencils, partially cut her out around the wings and layered her on BasicGrey Scarlett's Letter paper and cream card mounted with dimension tape. The other layers are the same paper and card which have all been sponged around the edges with black distress ink and placed according to the sketch which I've tweaked slightly to make a long shaped card. The sentiment tag is cut with nestie tag dies which I just managed to get from Dies to Die for (thanks as always Tracy for the top service). I've added Doodlebug rub on letters and some gems to the tag. The little butterflies are punched from the same BG paper and I've added ribbon, some more black gems and stickles glitter glue to the image to finish. Nearly the weekend, have a good Friday. TFL.
