A Birthday card for my sister

I've just finished a card for my sister's Birthday but of course I kept in mind all the challenge criteria I needed to enter a few challenges with it lol. It took quite some time to colour the image with copics but I think she'll like it. Luckily I had already coloured the skin and hair a couple of weeks ago, just needed to decide on colours of the flowers.

FWAB used:
Olive green and mango pearls

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Moving along with the times - - Flying high (butterflies)
Cute Card Thursday - - A stitch in time (faux stitching)
Simon Says Stamp - - Anything goes
Divas by Design - - Let's celebrate
The Stamping Boutique - - anything Birthdays
Craft your passion - - Floral images
CC Monthly - - Gold (gold lace)
Great Impressions - - Sentimental journey
Whoopsi Daisy - Ribbons and lace
Dream Valley - Something old (lace) something new (digi)
Pile it on - For a princess
Through the craftroom door - Anything goes
Our Creative Corner - - I embossed the butterfly and sentiment using a normal ink and then sprinkling clear embossing powder over it and heating it giving the images a sparkle. This challenge also required using something with wings (butterflies)
Paper Crafting Journey - - Anything goes
Just keep on Creating - - Anything goes

Thanks so much for taking a peek at my card/blog, hope to see you again,

  4. Hello Lucy
    A beautiful made card, and I am very impressed with your colour work.
    Our Creative Corner's Theme is 'Resist' Your butterfly has been inked and heat embossed which I am afraid is not classed as a resist Technique- You have to apply the resist medium first, then colour over the top, wipe away to reveal the image. Thank you for your lovely entry but I am afraid you will not qualify this time.

  5. A super card, you have coloured the image beautifuly and I love that lace
    thanks for joining in the Whoopsi Daisy Challenge and good luck

  6. Your coloring is beautiful Lucy! I love the colors you chose to use for her hair and skin and the DP is perfect for the pink & orange flowers. I especially like how you did the shadowing with dots of lime green around the focal image!
    I am delighted you joined the challenge at Craft Your Passion and I hope to see you again next week!
