Fly high and touch the sky...





The next two week challenge at Lexi's Creations is 3D. It gave me the perfect opportunity to use this gorgeous butterfly. I coloured it three times and layered it to give the flutter effect. I thought the background DP was pretty busy so I stuck to a simple sketch and I am happy with the result. Our Sponsor this week is the wonderful One Stop Card Crafts who will be giving the winner of this week's challenge a £10 Gift Voucher to spend in their online store.
I am entering these challenges... Crafty Calendar - bugs, Crafty Catz - digi, Delightful sketches - summer, Corrosive - flowers, Magical Crafts - flowers, and Incy Wincy - wings.
