Cuddly Buddly challenge 3- bright colours and butterflies.

Image- Flowers Frame from Lilyboo designs at Cuddly buddly.

Morning peeps.
Its a bit of a grey and gloomy one here so I thought I would post my entry for the Cuddly Buddly challenge this week which is Bright colours and butterflies.

If you haven't popped in for a look at their new challenges you should, and don't worry if you don't own any Cuddly Buddly images as there is a whole stack of freebies you can use to get your creation made HERE.

For mine I was inspired by a beautiful picture sent to me for Mo to look at by my friend Shirley, you can look at the pictures here on Shirley's blog. I used one of Lilyboo's images from the shop called Flowers Frame. Isn't it gorgeous. The big flowers on the left hand side reminded me of the sunflowers in Shirley's pictures, Mo is always excited to see sunflowers, he thinks they are happy flowers and the shine like the sun!! oh to be 6 again!!!! :)

I coloured the frame up with some yummy bright promarkers and then added some purple bling to the little flowers along the bottom. It is popped out from the card base on a bit of silicone, not sure the photo shows it!!!

 I decided to stick with a nice bright white card base to keep my card CAS and added a little yellow and blue chalk ink around the edge to match my frame colours. I also added a bit of loopy martha in a light blue card and some bright yellow organza ribbon.

The butterfly is my little magnolia butterfly. I stamped her onto to vellum with some staz-on and then coloured her in some yummy bright colours using my at you copic spicas. I hope the piccy shows how blingy she looks IRL !!

The sentiment is from my penny black wonderful day transparent set, I think the text on it is so pretty.

So thats me for today!!! Please pop over and join in the fun with the Cuddly Buddly challenges, they are just getting started and I know how exciting it is to see people entering when you are just starting up.

Off for a cup of coffee now, I just can't get myself awake this morning!!!!!
