Good Afternoon Everyone,
Can you believe that it is February already?
Today is the start of the challenges back over at Eclectic Ellapu and today's challenge is
Today's card is a card I made for my lovely mum who celebrated her birthday on Tuesday.
I decided to do an 8x8 card and go with a blue theme for the colour scheme.
I matted and layered my 8x8 with different backing papers, card stock and embossed the top layer with a butterfly embossing folder I used one of the new crafters companion a4 embossing folder "Butterflies"
The image I have used is from the new launch over at Lili of the Valley and it is James - Butterflies.
I love James he is such a cutie, and looks like a bear I got of my grandparents when I was a child, he was yellow in colour so I decided to call him "Yellow" I still have him safely packaged away so he doesn't get damaged I am thinking he is about 22 years old.
I used nestablilties for the frame around him.
Here is the card

Now I coloured James in using a selection of Graph'It Markers and promarker pens

Butterflies, 7260, 7250, 7240
Flowers - Soft Pink, Rose Pink, Pastel Pink
Grass - Emerald, Lush Green, Forest Green, Grass
Flex marker - Edge James - Soft Aqua.
I then used my chalks to chalk more grass and sky around him, but was looking for a more softer feel then alcohol markers
