It is time for a new challenge over on the butterfly challenge and the theme is as follows.
#105 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter F.

The colour wheel this time round is
Ferrari Red/French Blue/ Fuchsia/Flowers/Frame It/ Folds more than 1/ Butterfly.
Challenge is lasting for 4 weeks to take into account the school holidays and this beautiful weather that we have been experiencing of late. Long may it continue.

My card to inspire you is using Ferrari Red/Frame It/ Butterfly.

This lovely digi image is a freebie from Beccys Place where she has a  number of images that you can download.  I have a fuchsia bush just this colour in the garden so I took my pens outside and set up a table in front of the flower and copied the colours that I saw. The frame is made from silver edging and the the butterflies were silver stickers, both from my stash. I have adhered the image onto pink carstock ( which is coming out red in the picture) and then onto a white card base. The sentiment is part of a set by Digi Stamp Boutique called Birthday Mr Bear.
 I didn't realise that the leaves  on a Fuchsia actually have red veining on them. Here is the real thing which this time my camera is showing as pink not red IRL!!!!  I coloured mine using my Marvy Le Plume II watercolour pens by scribbling the colour onto a piece of acetate and then picking the colours up with a water brush. When dry I went over with my  clear Wink of Stella brush.

I will post another card using more of the wheel next Wednesday so stay tuned.

I like the idea for the challenge, something a bit different.
Lovely card, I'm not a fan of stickers generally but those little butterflies are adorable
