D'Arcys Diaries Card

It's officially the weekend, even though it's still Friday, but the Bank Holiday has started here in the UK - yaaaaayyy!!!  We have an extra crafting day, whoopeeeeee!

Yesterday, wanting to do something different to my usual, I bought two D'Arcy's Diaries digi stamps for the first time.  I'd come across the site a few days ago and I know I'll soon be buying more!

She's called "Hat'titude".  As usual, a few teaser photos before the end result!  I cut the intricately patterned butterfly out of K and Co's Wild Saffron paper, isn't it beautiful?

These buttons were attached with 3D foam pads.  I coloured the pads with matching Promarkers to avoid showing the white foam.

These gorgeous glittered papers are from My Minds Eye - Laundry Line
A coloured wooden peg holds the foiled sentiment in place.
Promarker in Pastel Blue highlights around the image
 The finished card - the swirls were also cut out of the KandCo Wild Saffron paper.
 I loved colouring this image and the final card measures 6" x 7".
Hope you like it!

 D'Arcy's Diaries Challenge - Buttons and Bows
