Crafty Ann's Challenge #20 'Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer'

Hi everyone, its time for another Challenge from Crafty Ann's Challenge blog and this time around we have a theme of 'Lazy Hazy Days of Summer'. I've chosen a theme of butterflies for my DTcard, I love to sit in the garden on a lazy summer day and watch the butterflies, they are so beautiful.

I've used one of Ann's beautiful Funky collection bps and her 'hands' digi - such a great image as you can use it with so many other stamps etc (you can check them out at Ann's store here). I've stamped around the edge of the BP with a HOTP swirl and brilliance pearlescent olive ink. I cut the image in a circle and coloured it with promarkers before dusting brilliance lilac ink around and stamping with the same swirl. The butterfly stamps are from Elusive Images, stamped on to acetate and embossed with gold EP. i glittered the backs, cut them out and attached them with silicone glue for some dimension. To finish off I added some gold fb gems and stamped the sentiment (again from Elusive images) in pearlescent olive ink.

I'm  entering this card in the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday: Dazzle me
Flutter by Wednesday: An open challenge

Thanks for looking, I hope you are going to join us at Crafty Ann's this time around, don't forget the winner gets some lovely goodies from Ann's digishop and there's a top 3 too :-)
