Spot The Doodle.

It's into the second week of the latest Butterfly Challenge which is running for a total of 4 weeks.

#84 Butterflies + You Choose  and/or Wedgewood Blue

Here is my inspiration card for you.
I was very lucky to receive this die cut image  in the post from my lovely blogging friend Greta and as it was a total surprise it made my day for me. Thanks Greta. I knew exactly what I was going to be using it for and kept it safely on my desk to use on this card. The die is a PTI coverplate and as Gtreta had used white  Bristol paper I was able to colour with my blue promarker pen to get the exact shade I needed. The background is from some sheets that I had made earlier in the year using the Shaving Foam Technique  and this particular sheet looked perfect behind the butterflies. I have mounted onto dark blue linen card  which in turn is adhered to a white card base and as Faye's 'FaDoddles ' were out on my desk I just had to use them to finish off the card. I have stamped them this time using Memento Dew Drop Nautical Blue . I also added blue gems to the butterflies antenna which I have left waving on the card.   To win one of these  fabulous stamp sets I'm giving one away free in the Candy at the top of this page which ends 30th Aug.

Greta is a sweetie and that was a nice thing for her to do. You made such great use of the die cuts. I love your soft background of shaving cream and the blue gems you added to the antennas. Adding the FaDoodles set it off just perfectly.
