Just Magnolia week 7 and Copic Creations Challenge 4

Hi everyone, hope you've all had a great weekend and enjoyed some of the wonderful weather that we've been lucky enough to have down here on the south coast. A card today for Just Magnolia Week 7 and a theme of animals and insects and also for Copic Creations Challenge 4 where the them is blonde hair. Thank you ladies on both challenges for the wonderful inspiration as always. I've used the gorgeous Butterfly Tilda, I know I keep saying it but I do love this Magnolia set they're so pretty. I've coloured her with markers and added some stickles to wings and a sentiment to the top right then mounted the image with dimension tape. The  background paper is by K&Co and this has been layered with doily punched piece of blue coredinations card and sheer green ribbon. I punched a cornflower from the patterned paper and curved it about then made a hole to add the little butterfly charm held in with a brad. I used some glue gel to mount these. I also added a slight curve to the doily punched edge, it seems to look a bit better like this than just flat to the base. TFL. Chris x
