Anything but a Card at Morgans ArtWorld

With an Anything but a Card challenge this fortnight over at Morgans ArtWorld I thought this was a perfect opportunity to create a bookmark for my daughter and this is what I came up with:

Card Tip:
This is where digital images really come into their own, what you can't see in my images is that the butterfly is double sided. This is easy to do with a digital image as it is easy to perfectly flip your image and then print and colour the two of them at the same time.

Card Ingredients:
Card Stock: Francheville pink and white card stock.
               Butterflies: BG02+BG05+BG07, B21+B23+B24+B91 
               V12+V15+V17, BV00+BV02+BV04, 
               RV02+RV04+RV06, YG23, Y13,YR04
Embossing Folder: Simply Card Magazine free border embossing folder.
Other: Pink ribbon from stash, pink,purple and blue gems, Marco Raffine pencils for added colour to flowers.
