Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge #8

Good morning lovely blogger friends and readers!

It's 3am my time (gosh, I love that song by Matchbox 20, don't you?) and it is Friday!!!  Just one more day before the weekend- woohoo!

I'm bouncing in to share my DT card for this fortnight's challenge over at Stampin' for the Weekend.  The theme for this challenge is friendship, and we are being sponsored by the one and only Saturated Canary.  Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!  Some absolutely adorable images can be found there.

I made this card for a friend who is going through a bit of a rough patch lately.  I am hoping it will cheer her up a bit.

Wowza.  All the folds and hair.  A Copic marker lover's dream.  A bit daunting for a beginner.  I won't tell you how many times I've had to reprint the image but my printer can likely print it without me even telling it to :) Butterfly Princess was such a beautiful and perfect image to practice, practice and practice some more.  Nothing like jumping right in head first!

All dies are from Cheery Lynn (any frequent readers have probably guessed by now who my favorite die company is).   Towards the bottom is the gorgeous Anastasia border that I used this time rather than lace.  It is quite a lovely die.  To give the butterfly from the Small Exotic Butterflies #2 a pretty place to rest, I used the bigger of the two hearts from the Two of Hearts set.  The corner embellishment is from the Lace Corner Deco E set.  And, the best for last- the flower.  I made the flower from two large pieces and three small pieces of the Judy's Bloom die, and using my quilling tool to curl the edges up.  Tighter curls the closer you get to the center.

Copics used:
Dress:  BG0000/01/02/05, BV000/00/01/02
Hair:  E43/50/53/57
Skin:  E0000/000/00, R05/20
Eyes:  YG05/09

The butterfly was heat embossed with Shabby Pink Fran-tage from Stampendous.  The heart in the background was sponged in Peacock Feathers distress ink.

Flower petals were sponged in Picked Raspberry distress ink, leaves in Peeled Paint distress ink and Anastasia Border in Peacock Feathers distress ink.

And one of the inside :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have an absolutely terrific weekend!
