A Card for ArtbyMiran Facebook Challenge

I promised last night to write up a post describing what I have done with this image and card design. The image is from ArtbyMiran, and the papers are to. If you take part in the Reserved Challenge every month you are given a free image for the following month once the present challenge is finished but you must take part in it to win it.
I printed this image onto white card and coloured it with not only copic pens but also my Tonic Nuvo pens (Id taken the image to craft club and as I have far to many copics to take I used the Tonic ones instead) they have not got the about of shades as the copics to but theyve made a decent job of it. I then cut it out with my Nestabilitie die and used a fancy one for the mount, Ive also done the same with the sentiment. (I should have said I glittered the wings and the butterfly)
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the papers are also from ArtbyMiran and this set are the Oriental ones, I have used three of the papers and layered them up as show, the second and third ones I have used the butterfly border and corner punches on them.
I then placed my mounted image in the center and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.

Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge - April

Good Morning Crafters, well I hope you all enjoyed your Easter Holidays, ours was very quiet and although hubby did his volunteer job with the local steam railway on Saturday we spend the rest of them weekend taking the dog for a walk and taking it easy.
Anyway over on Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge its April the 1st you know All Fools Day and I hope you wont find my card in that category as this week I had a funeral to go to yesterday for a dear friend who lost her battle with lung cancer and this was the card I sent her family with my sympathies.

 Its from the Heartfelt Surprise Lily collection, I have used two stamps and coloured the flower down the left side with my copic pens.
I layered it up on a similar colour paper from the collection and mounted my image on top. I do hope you like the result and if you do I hope that you will pay a visit to Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "April" Challenge.
