One Stitch at a Time Challenge 205

This week at One Stitch at a Time, in honour of Mothering Sunday, our challenge is to make something for a 'woman in your life'. That could be your mum, of course, but it can be any other woman who's important to you.

Our sponsor this time is

I worked with a pretty floral image from Stitchy Bear called Flowerlicious, which is available from the shop - link in my sidebar. It's perfect for any woman - in this case, it's for my sister's birthday.

I added the text in Photoshop Elements and then printed the image (or parts of it) three times, and coloured with Promarkers. I layered both the flower and the butterfly, and finished the flower with a sticky gem. The image is cut and matted using shapes cut with Spellbinders dies, and the die cut butterfly is another Spellbinders die. I added some glitter glue to the butterfly's body. The paper is from Kate Knight, and was a magazine freebie a while ago.

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

City Crafter where the theme is 'spring in the garden',
Fan-Tastic Tuesday where anything goes,
Lady Bug Crafts Ink where they want something for a special lady (my sister),
Addicted to Stamps and More where they want us to 'Make your Mark' (mine was made with Promarkers)
The Crafter's Cafe where they want a square card,
Divas by Design where the theme is 'flower power',
Crafts and Me where anything goes,
Bearly Mine where they want 'one for the girls',
Digi Galore where anything goes.
