Hello ~ Balloon Butterfly by Pinkydoll

Morning Everyone!

A new card to share with you today.
I made it just for fun as I adore this cute image from ppinkydolls.

The image is ppinkydolls' Balloon Butterfly by Chrishanthi.
I water colored the image with Distress Ink pads except the hair which
was colored with black Prismacolor pencil.

I top stitched and distressed all paper edges and dotted my pearl pen here and there.

Designer papers ~ Maja Design Coffee in the Arbor Collection
Dies ~ Go Kreate, Magnolia, and Tim Holtz
Sentiment ~ Stampin'Up

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl:
Ivory organza rose/pearl ribbon, natural button twine, 
Darjeeling pink blossom mixture, Darjeeling mini pink blossom mixture,
white Gutermann top stitching thread, 3mm white s/a flat back pearls,
teardrop pin wheel, 6mm sticky tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by and wish you a lovely day!


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
