My first C.C designs card

Hi all,

Hope you are having a great day!  I so sure am, remember yesterday I said I am really excited because I was waiting for my order to come through the post?  Well some of it arrived today and wow am I a bouncing bunny or what lol....

So two of the stamps I ordered were from C.C. Designs, the Butterfly Nora and Field Fence for some of my stamps to sit on.  For this card I have Nora sitting on the fence.

I love this card so much, in fact I think it's my favourite (ok one of my favourites).  I love it so much I couldn't stop taking pictures lol hence a few more pics than usual. 

The main reason for making this card is for the HUGE event on at Flutter By Wednesday, you must hop over to see what it is all about, believe me you will not be disappointed ; )

Anyway so you're now thinking how did she do it?  So postman arrived at 12pm I ripped the package open dropped all the stamps onto the sofa and randomly chose one with my eyes closed.  I picked Butterfly Nora, then as I thought about how to put the card together I decided to add the fence to the overall design.  So Nora was stamped and cut out (a little fiddly but well worth it), then the fence was stamped on a separate card stock, Nora was then stuck onto the fence.  As this card is especially for the Flutterfly challenge #120 Birthday Blow out,  I used the butterfly paper from Dovercarft, Wild Blossom.  If you love bright colours, pink, flowers and butterflies this paper is perfect.  The sketch is also from the Flutterfly challenge, I played around with lots of different papers/ribbon etc but I love the finished product and it took me 3hrs to complete.  The image is coloured using Promarkers and I added a little chalk to the background and a little glitter to Nora's wings.  The sentiment is Papermania, in the open space of the stamp I added a tiny butterfly using the same DP as on the body of the card.  A few gems and there we are, a lovely attempt at a fab sketch.  Be sure to play along, there are so many prizes how can you resist?
