For this challenge I have used this gorgeous image Fairy Fae by DeliciousDoodles. I absolutely adore butterflies and this image reminds me of my visit to the butterfly farm in Stratford Upon Avon. If you stand still you may be lucky enough that they land on you. Once I had 4 on me all at the same time and it is just magical to feel so connected to them.

As soon as I saw this image I knew it had to be purples. I am very fortunate to have the full set of all available Promarkers and Flexmarkers so I have lots of shades of purple to choose from J I even coloured the hair in purple, something I have never done before.

I used a lovely paper pad called Dreamcatcher by First Edition and added a scrap of lilac card which has been embossed with a Crafts Too folder and inked with a small Versamark pad.
The flower has been made with a Sizzix Die, a leather swatch, white glitter card and a jewel brad by Papermania. I added some Stickles glitter glue and Glossy accents to the image and a sentiment from my stash.
