Copic cards again

Well, I have put together a few cards using my copic coloured images and changing the flower one, by removing the flower and adding a bow and butterfly. I have with trepidation entered a Challenge at Mad for Markers, knowing that everyone there is so much better than me.  It is the second card down that has the colors near the challenge. The top card I have entered into a Challenge at a website I discovered this afternoon called Friends Having Fun.  They have a current Sketch Challenge running - their first one. "

I do not have anyone in mind for this card yet, but am sure to find some princess who loves pink and glitter! I used SU card, and a cuttlebug folder to emboss the background, and to cut out the frames.  I used the cuttlebug also to cut dies for the sentiment. The glitter was added onto the wings and crown and heart to make them pop. At this stage there is no wording inside the card but I thought something about Birthday wishes would be suitable.

I am sending this to a relative who has not been well and the wording inside the card relates to operations and feeling below par. I thought it suited the sad face on the girl. The card is SU card and the ribbon is a crossgrain red.  The background paper is from Deja Views Alpha Blocks - Big Dots. I do not have all the correct colours, but do have R02 Flesh (for E00 ), RV02 Blush (for R20) and BG15.

I now notice that one side of the ribbon bow is inside out and will need to sort that out!  Not happy with it at all.  Perhaps I will give up on this one.  The butterfly was purchased from a craft stall and is made from acetate and glued together, with gold and glitter added later. It looks pretty and I bought a few of these for $1 each in different colours - too fiddly for me to make for the cost!
