Nora on a Swing

Hello again!  I've had some time on my hands lately, which is abnormal for me with two small children (lol!) so I've been very busy making cards.  I have to say that this card is one of my favorite ones that I made lately.  I've used the sketch from Sketch Saturday Week #110.  I am also entering it into Cute Card Thursday and Flutter By Wednesday Week #112.  I am absolutely in love with the designer papers, they are from Making Memories.  When I first saw it I thought it was a little busy with the paisley's and all but once I started using it, I completely fell in love with it!  I used CTMH cardstock for the matting.

Isn't this image just the cutest??  She is Nora on a Swing from C.C. Designs.  I used Diamond Stickles to add some bling to her wings and to the butterflies.  I hand drew the grass to ground her.  The flowers are Off white mini roses from Prima.  The bigger flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I attached a punched Martha Stewart butterfly to a crystal pick so it looks like it is fluttering by.

The inside.

copics used to color with:  E21, BG93, E53, W00, W1, E50, E00, E33, E31, R12, E57, G82, B0000, W3, R01, B41, E35, R02, R11, YR31.

Hugs, Lisa

What an absolutely gorgeous card! What die did you use? I don't recognize the shape - which I LOVE! But the rest of your card is just beautiful too. Love the stickles on the butterfly and your flower arrangement.
