BBTB2 Challenge-Once Upon A Princess

Welcome to BBTB2 Challenge, Lori is our host this week.  This is really a busy card but, they are butterflies and oh how I love them.  Lori asked us to use the "Once Upon A Princess" cart, I do not have that one, so I used 3 different carts, "Indi Art, Gypsy Wandering and Wall Decor", one thing our Cricut carts have in abundance of is butterflies.
For the background paper I took a piece of white card stock and stamped 5 large butterfllies using stamps from, Clear Stamps, Tim Holtz and PSX, using black Memento ink, I then airbrushed in the color using Copics.  I then cut out my butterflies at approx. 2" and colored with the markers.  The black beauties are from the Martha Stewart punch, I accented their wings with gold dots.  The photo corners are EKSuccess. I used an MS boarder punch on the bottom of the tag, and the tag says, "Just a flutterby of hellos and good wishes, may they brush your cheeks with warm kisses." I added a small ribbon with metal flakes to the top of the tag.  Please visit our challenge site and have a Blessed week. Hugs

Holy moly, spicy gaucamole!!!! This is GORGEOUS!!! Your coloring techniques and abilities are astounding! I'm afraid you're going to be quite bored at the certification class, my friend. I think you just need to contact her and let her know you'll be up there helping her teach the class. Or she could just take the day off. LOL! You're amazing!!
hugs, Sharon
