My first post as GDT for Crafty Catz Challenge Blog!

Hi there Crafty Friends, Bloggers and Followers, I am so thrilled to announce that this is my first post as Guest Designer at Crafty Catz challenge blog!. I'm so looking forward to working with all the Girls on the team and also sharing my creative inspirations with you all for the next few months! So without further ado, here is my first project for our new weekly challenge with the theme of 'Add a Butterfly'. Our fabulous sponsor is A Day For Daisies and I am using their gorgeous image Baby's Smile

My Project

Products Used
A Day For Daisies - Baby's Smile image
ProMarkers - Baby pink, Pale pink, Rose pink, Antique pink, Sandstone and Caramel
Copic Ciao - Skin white, Pinkish white, Milky white and Cherry white
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card
Bazzil Bling - Pink card
Creata - Pink mirror card (butterflies)
Docrafts - Forever Friends 12x12 'New Arrival' backing paper and Papermania brads & fabric flowers
Spellbinders - Blossom 3 die
Britannia - Rose Leaf die
Joy Crafts - Butterfly die
Woodware - Corner punch
PanPastel - Magenta tint
My Stash - White doily, pink glitter card and Pearl gems

To create this I first of all printed, coloured and cut out image (9 x 9.5cm) and punching the corners. I layered this on to (10 x 10.5cm) Bazzil Bling card also with punched corners. For the card itself, I used a (7 x 7 inch) white scalloped card blank, layering together Bazzil bling pink card and 'New Arrival' backing paper also with punched corners on to this. I then started to add all the different elements such as the doily, which I cut in half, followed by the image, flowers, brads, die cut leaves, butterflies and flower stamen. Finishing off with pearl gems.
