A Big Butterfly!

Good Morning Everyone, 
Here's a card I'm not too sure about.... Is the butterfly too big? or the sentiment too small...or is it OK?? What do you think?
I've used 'Flower Border' from Digistamp boutique, which is coloured with promarkers.
I've used a MB Lunette Butterfly die, and pearls from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Simon Says Stamp - Happy Birthday
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
I Love Promarkers - Clean and Simple
Inky Chicks - Butterflies
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Birthdays
Digistamp Boutique - Customer Challenge

Thanks for taking the time to visit my litle blog today and for all your lovely comments and encouragement

I think it is absolutely perfect hun, but Toad would disagree. In his book any butterfly is too big - he has a real issue with them! Love the sweet flower border, and gorgeous colours. A stunning statement card. Hugs xx

The flower border is beautiful and the sentiment is perffect. I would have used two or three smaller butterflies, that one does look a bit big to me compared to the flowers. Love the cas layout though

Hello Lorraine
I think the butterfly fits perfectly. He is so delicate that it does not interfere. The colors are very beautiful. On my cards is also always at least one butterfly. Because I love butterflies.
Many greetings from Switzerland

Beautiful card Lorraine - I love the soft pretty colours and your butterfly looks gorgeous:) Hugs xx

Jennifer said...

It's perfect, Loreraine...love your CAS design too.

I couldn't believe this when I just sat down to browse over some blogs. I posted a card about an hour ago, and it has a large butterfly on it as the focal point. I made it on Wednesday, but didn't get a chance to photograph, crop, watermark, and post it until today.

Hugs,
Jennifer. x
