Butterfly Wishes

This is another of the cards I made last weekend for one of the many October birthdays that are coming up. The image is 'Butterfly Wishes' by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils to match the Autumnal shades in the 'Bloom & Grow' papers by My Mind's Eye. I inked around all of the edges using chalk ink pads, and added a sentiment (from the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black).

Challenges for this card:
