Hello Little Butterfly

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is

‘G is for Grand’
(Anything But A Card)

At first I wasn't too sure what I was going to make for this challenge. A bag, a tag.... Then I remembered that I wanted to make a Perpetual Calendar after seeing Norma's lovely creation here some time back. If you'd like to make one too Norma has done a tutorial which you will find here.  I actually turned Norma's instructions into cut files so I can cut them on my Silhouette with all my paper & card layers needed too. 

Here's is how mine turned out. 


I love the pretty colours in these papers from Kaisercraft's Sea Breeze Collection. 

I've used the gorgeous 'Hello Little Butterfly' image from Magnolia which is one of my all time favourites. I've stamped my image onto X-Press It Blending card using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and coloured with my Copic Markers.

Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair & Boots - E57, E55, E53, E51
