Dreams and Wishes with butterflies

I’ve made this card for one of my granddaughters who will be 8 very soon.   She is having a woodland party so I thought a fairy on a toadstool, butterflies, flowers and a bee charm would fit the theme.   I used Dreams and Wishes from Sugar Nellie stamps – I coloured the image with Copics, Promarkers and a Flexmarker and glittered the wings with Sparkles       Icicle.   The papers are from Nitwits and I distressed the edges . The lace, flowers, and pearls are from the Ribbon Girl and the bee charm and ribbon are from my stash.   The       butterfly border die is from Joy Crafts and I distressed it with several shades of pink and added Stickles Icicle.   The sentiment is from LOTV.

As You Like It Challenge – Favourite Die and Why                                             http://asyoulikeitchallenge.blogspot.fr/2015/09/favourite-die-and-why.html

This butterfly border is definitely one of my favourite dies.   I’ve used it on the side or along the top of a card and also I’ve bent it around a circle with an image.   Mostly I distress it with several different colours.   I think it gives elegance and interest to a project – or can be a fun addition for a little girl.
