It was my turn to choose an image for myself and teamie Choccie to use and I opted for this rather wistful image Butter Blue by Barbara Jensen. I was drawn to the expression on the face and of course I loves butterflies J

I wanted to use the peacock colours of blues and turquoises, I just felt the image lent itself to those colours and went for a completely different approach (for me) of colouring the hair a bright blue. I fussy cut the image out including the frame which was quite awkward with the scroll bits. I mounted it with 3d foam onto some blue cardstock and added the butterfly charm and brad underneath.

The card blank is covered with a pretty paper from the New Bloom First Edition pad. I added some lace and ribbon from my stash and mounted the image so it projected off the card. I used some scraps of card to create a punched heart embellishment and the sentiment has been cut with a Quickutz Cookie Cutter die.
