Hi Everyone,

I made this card for my eldest daughter's birthday.

I love this cute image and thought it would be quite a challenge to colour it in using only Black Soot Distress Ink.

For a bit of shine I added a black satin ribbon and put some gloss on the butterfly. The butterfly is a free stamp from Craftstamper magazine.

A doily and some lace give it a nice feminine effect.

I am entering this into:

Have a great weekend - whatever the weather!! lol
