Oranges and Lemons at Graph'It

Good morning folks, Friday again and we've got another long weekend here in the UK yipppeeeeeee! Summer seems to have deserted us though as after a few really hot days the rain is back but with any luck it will brighten up over the weekend. You've still got time to enter our 'oranges and lemons' challenge over at Graph'It colouring challenge, you don't have to use Graph'Its to enter but our lucky winner will receive a fab prize from Premium Craft Brands so don't miss out on your chance to win!

 I love yellow its one of my favourite colours and for this card I decided to have a play with creating a background with my markers. I just scribbled on acetate in shades of yellow and orange , spritzed with Mix it fluid and swooshed my card through, adding extra layers here and there. I also use my Graph'Its to colour the reverse of the acetate butterflies before I glittered them
Pop over to the challegne blog for a full list of the colours used.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bastel Traum: summer
Crafting for all seasons: things with wings
Diva's by Design: anything goes
