Lizabeth - Butterfly Kisses

Hi Folk!

Hope you're all good and having lots of fun crafting.

Just made a card that I'm pretty chuffed with.  It features one of the brand new digis (that woman never stops!) that Heather Valentin has just brought out at her Lacy Sunshine store.  There are a number of new ones on there and she's added even more to the retiring section where they're just $1 each!  And remember, Lacy Sunshine is the ONLY authorised and legal home of Heather's wonderful digis.  Anyone else selling them is doing so illegally.

This digi is called Lizabeth - Butterfly Kisses.  I absolutely love Lizabeth...she's so beautiful.

See...stunning!  This digi is just lovely for girls of any age group.  Love, love, love her.  

I've coloured her with my promarkers and have used the following colours:

Hair - Caramel, Sandstone and Satin.
Eyes - Marine, Turquoise and Cool Aqua.
Skin - Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush and Baby Pink (cheeks).
Top/flowers in hair/patches/lips/nails - Antique Pink and Baby Pink.
Jeans - Cornflower, Blue Pearl and China Blue.
Ground - Putty and Blender.
Flower - Antique Pink, Baby Pink, Grass and Meadow Green.
Butterfly - Cornflower, Blue Pearl, China Blue, Antique Pink, Baby Pink, Burnt Umber and Walnut.

I've used four different Bearly Mine (link in sidebar) papers for this one, and matted them onto pink.  I've always loved brown and pink and brown and blue together, so thought that I'd mix the three for this card, and I'm very pleased with the results...they all work beautifully together.

I've also set them out in one of my favourite layouts so it's no wonder I like this card...great digi, beautiful colours and papers AND a great layout (which was from a sketch).  

The inside is decorated to match.  

I've typed out the sentiment on my lappy, then matted it up on pink card (from stash) to match rest of matting and layering.  

Two pink, glitter Papermania flowers and a few pink faux gems from my stash finish it off beautifully.  

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:  where the theme is 'Favourite Colour Combos.' where the theme is 'Love/Anything Goes.' where the theme is 'Anything Goes.' where the theme is 'Anything Goes.' where the theme is 'Anything Goes.'

Hope you like the card and love the digi.  Go have a look at Heather's lovely new Lacy Sunshine store.  She really is a fabulous artist.

Take care everyone.
Happy crafting!
