Another Birthday card for my Aunt

This is the card I have made from me and my Husband to send to My Auntie Audrey, it's her birthday on Tuesday so I hope it arrives on time.

I followed a sketch on Sunday Sketchers for this one which is shown below.




I used the lemonade paper pad from Basic grey which I am fast running out of for this card. The image is a Sarah Kay one ok so it is meant to be for Christmas but I loved this one and it is perfect for my Auntie. The little butterfly charms I used are ones I was given for Christmas so I am not sure where they are from. I bought the gems on a trip to hobbeycraft they are by Papermania.



I coloured the image with Copic markers as usual :) I edged the image using black ink i think this finishes it off really nicely.

Here is a close up of the image




Sorry for the darkness of the images it isn't very light here at the moment and when i try and use a lamp it creates loads of shadows :(

I am entering this card in to the following challenges;

Sunday Sketchers -Sketch
Incy Wincy designs - Bling

I love this image. My Mum has it and she's too far away for me to 'borrow' it. Fantastic card and I just love those papers. Good luck in the challenges.
