Butterflies, Fairies and Snails!

If you are interested in my 100 Follower Thank You blog candy, please click HERE.

Happy Easter Sunday!  I hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

If you have been following along with all the new releases from Christy at Tiddly Inks this last week you will have seen the final new Wryn for the week yesterday.  Her name is Wryn - Fairy Friends and I think she might just be my favourite Wryn!  She comes with two butterflies and a snail, only me being a bit blond didn't realise that one of the images was a snail and just thought it was an odd looking butterfly... duh!   So here's my card (with a blue snail):

Isn't she lovely?  I have coloured her with copics (see details below) and added stickles to the butterflies' wings and green Spica pen to Wryn's wings.  The clouds are cut with my Slice machine.  The charm is from my stash and the silver butterflies are fancy staples placed with my Pin It.  The seam binding ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  The papers are from Simple Stories, crate Paper and October Afternoon.

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Catch the Bug: April Anything Goes
CMC Copic Challenge: Spring Pretties
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays: Things with Wings

Have a lovely day!

Soooo beautiful Arabella!

Tracy said...

Hey snails can be blue like everybody else. LOL I've had a few of those revelation after you're done coloring moments myself. :-) I really love your style of coloring and decided to cut out around my image for a card I just did because I like the way yours looks so much. I think it turned out so much better than just being a square mat. Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs!
