My card for this challenge was made using a gorgeous stamp called Lylie by Sylvie's Stamps. It is the first time I have used one of her designs in and I really enjoyed colouring in all the intricate parts of this design.

The image is coloured with Promarkers and I used lots of different tones of blues throughout the card. It is not often I create a monochrome card but I felt it would suit this design really well. I printed just the lady for the second layer and used foam to create depth. The butterfly wings have been embellished with lots of gems and glitter.

I used a sketch from Sketches by Carly for the layout of the card. The top section is pale blue card which has been run through a Cuttlebug embossing folder which has butterflies on it. The bottom paper is from Papermania, ribbon from stash. The final touches are Prima flowers with gem centres and a sentiment from my stash which has been recycled from a shop bought card.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size - A5
Sketch - Sketches By Carly #35
Papers - Papermania striped paper and scrap card which has been embossed
Image - Lylie by Sylvie's Stamps.
Tools - Cuttlebug Embossing folder
Embellishments - Prima Flowers, Gems by Papermania, ribbon & Stickles glue
Techniques - Embossing

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
