The East Wing Challenge - use a digi!

I saw this image and thought it was just so cute! I then realised that it was being offered as a freebie, and if that wasnt good enough, if you use the free image to the use a digi challenge then you can enter twice! Well i am yet to win a challenge and i loved the image so i am giving it a go!

I used my promarkers and coloured the image using inspiration from the design team on the East Wing Challenge.  I loved the fact that everyone on the DT had used the same image and yet the cards were all so different.

I layered the butterfly as i felt it just had to be done such a pretty butterfly it just wanted to fly off the page!  I have made the card for my daughter who is not 10 until July, but i know she will love the picture too.

I used my silhouette to cut the numbers out, inked the edges of one of the layers, and stitched the base layer with my sewing machine. I added a flourish, doylie, some lace from the works and some flowers from WOC.  Some stickles to the butterfly, and a heart that i moulded using air dry clay.  I was tempted to put glossy accents on her eyes but i feel they look fab with out it.

Thanks for looking!

I am entering this card into the following challenge:
