Mad Butterfly

Happy Tuesday!

Sorry you didn’t hear from me last week, my hubby hasn’t been very well. He’s had several attacks of gout recently and we ended up at the hospital for an x-ray to see if there was anything else going on. Thankfully he seems to be on the mend now. We still haven’t figured out why he gets it though.

Anyway, on to today’s card for my post over at MTDS – a mad butterfly. I made this for my friend, she’s mad about polka dots and I didn’t want to do traditional colours for her.
The butterfly is from the set by Paper Smooches’ Giddy Bugs and the sentiment is from Party Posse.

For this card I dug out some very old patterned paper and paper pieced the butterfly.  I just Copic coloured in his body using BG15, BG11 & BG10, RV63, RV66 & RV69.

The ribbon was VERY naughty, it just would not sit flat and although this card looks simple that bow took FOREVER to get right and I’m still not sure I like it lol.  To finish the card I added some little silver pearls (makes her look like she has bunches!) and a trail.

Hope you have a great week.
