Shaylee coloured for Fab'n'Funky

Hi everyone,

 It's starting to feel a lot like spring for us. Temps are moving up with lots of rain which should bring the green grass.  Every morning around 5 am the robins start singing, followed by the cardinals and bluejays (well their song is more like a screech) but quite a symphony in our backyard none the less.

Today starts a new challenge at
and the theme chosen by our lovely Aurore is "Pink"

We are so happy to have the fabulous Artbymiran as our sponsor this week. 
 The prize to the lucky winner will be 3 free digis

I've coloured with Copics a digi called Fairy Shaylee and she can be found here.

Card base is cut using Martha Stewart Punch-around-the-page Cherish die. 
The large butterfly is Cheery Lynn Designs DL132 Lace Flourish Butterfly.  
The smaller one is cut using two dies from Memory Box - Moonlight Butterfly  with Kaleidoscope Butterfly mounted on top.
Butterfly border is a Tim Holtz on-the-edge die Butterflyflight.
The frame is cut using Spellbinders Classic Frame.
Leaves are cut using a die from the Spellbinder Foliage die set.
I believe the organza rose is a Prima.
Lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from a LOTV stamp set called Vintage Labels Occasions.   The silver ribbon is part of a Webster's Pages collection.

Here is a closer look at Shaylee

I'm sorry I don't have a list of Copics... after I finished the kitchen table was littered with markers and I'm not sure which one's I grabbed in the end.  
 I do know the pinks were R85, R83, R81 with a touch of R89.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Artbymiran Challenge #3 - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge: I is for In a Line (shaped card, ribbon, flowers)
Crafty Cardmakers #113 - You've been Framed
Inky Chicks Challenge #26 - Butterflies

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Stay well and enjoy the rest of your week.
