Butterflies 2012

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week. Here is a card I did with one of the vintage images from Nicecrane Designs. She is such a cutie. I also can share the design sheet with you so if you would like to color any of these cuties please feel free to do so. It is called Kiddie Land. I hope I made it big enough for you to get a good copy. You should be able to right click and SAVE PICTURE AS.

Butterflies flat 2012

For me I just kept it simply. I thought with the fly swatter she is holding I would add some butterflies on flowers. The butterfly punch is from Martha Steward. Used the Pearl Pen color Sunny Yellow. Ribbon matched her hat so well. These are the copic markers I used to color her in.
