Lots of Layers/Wish upon a star - Live and Love Crafts - Michelle R Designs - Winter wonderland DT

Hello and welcome, I finally have a card to post for the latest challenge at Winter Wonderland, where Cindy has chosen the theme of 'Lots of Layers/Wish upon a Star'.
My apologies for posting so late. A very close friend has been admitted to hospital with major problems.  
I thought I would get this card made in time, but I was hospital visiting on Thursday, and again yesterday.  I cut all my layers and  was so tired that I went to bed and got up yesterday at 7.30am to glue and take photo's before the challenge went live.
When I looked at my die cuts I found that even using a daylight lamp they were all wrong, so had to start from scratch, and finally had it finished after 12.30pm, and added it to the blog before going,back to the hospital.

The rejects!!!!!! (and this isn't all of them mas I managed to recycle them into the card)

Tadaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. And this is the completed card.

I have managed to get 7 layers  using rainbow mirror board and a pastel lilac. The dies winter flurries Couture Collection. I added snowflakes that are 'waste' from a MS punch.
The sentiment is computer generated onto  a tag from the Michele R designs Winter Frost collection, as is the  the DP. 

 Michele R  has for sale, and there really are some beautiful collections at her shop. She is offering the winner a   €10.00  voucher


And the gorgeous Polar Bear images I am sure I bought from Live and love Crafts, but I couldn't find a link for them. 
 and by Live and Love Crafts who are giving the winner a £10 voucher to spend in store

The other ladies on the Snowflake team have really pushed nthe boat out with their fabulous cards this week, and they can be found here, 

Thanks for taking the time to look

Beautiful butterflies - Crafters Companion - Passion for Promarkers DT

Good afternoon, another late post waiting for some sunshine to arrive... now wait for it I bet it appears when I have posted this :)
So today is the start of a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers, and Nic has chosen the theme of Beautiful Butterflies.  I remembered downloading the monthly freebie (for members) in April, and it took ages to finally find where I had saved it to.  The pages even have their name as 'beautiful butterflies'  so are perfect for this challenge.

This was a really easy card to make with no problems around choosing the right colours to use to colour the butterflies, but it took a while to get the right shades for the Co-ordinations layers.
I printed the butterflies in graduated sizes and coloured them up with flex and Promarkers. The ribbons and sparkler are from my stash

A close up of the butterflies. I added white AB pearls and tiny amounts of Nuvo glitter to the edge of the wings, and alternated the colours.
