Butterfly... flutter by...

Butterflies!
 
That's the theme of this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers and naturally I just couldn't resist cos I looooove em! Butterflies are one papercrafting motif that I will never tire of - I'd put em on everything given half a chance! :D
 
This challenge was also the perfect opportunity for me to try out one of my brand new digi stamp designs - Butterfly Profile - which has just been added to the (newly revamped!) Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet store:
 
 
I coloured the image with my Promarkers:
 
 
I wanted my card to have intense, vibrant colours to match with this image so I took the plunge and finally made myself use some of the gorgeous Bo Bunny Ambrosia collection which I've been hoarding avariciously for probably at least a year (filed under "Too Pretty To Use")! :D
 
I looooove these papers and matching embellies!
 
I matted the paper and my coloured image onto deep turqouise cardstock and added a pretty cluster of flowers, with a button centre, and a sentiment (stamped and die-cut with my Itty Bitty Banners set from Stampin' Up! - love this versatile set for making instant sentiment banners!):
 
 
I added a few more flowers:
 
 
And then pretty much went kerrr-aaazy with the butterflies! :D
 
 
I used my Beautiful Wings embosslit die from Stampin' Up! and cut butterflies from three different colours of card. I use this die sooo much and it's perfect for dinky little butterflies to scatter across a creation. :)
 
I finished things off with a few gemstones.
 
 
And that's my butterfly-themed card. D'you think it's got enough butterflies to qualify for the theme? Be honest now? ;D :lol:
