Get Funky Challenge - My Card

I had a very special birthday card to make this month and decided to use the Funky Hand Challenge sketch as a basis for that card. This is my 1 st ever challenge so it might not be 100% to the letter of the sketch but I really enjoyed the whole process of making it.

Deciding on what papers to use was the hardest bit for me but eventually I decided to use the papers from the Funky Word Books cd. I just love that big Daisy backing paper, it's just so pretty.

The front is made from acetate which is also a 1 st for me, but I think it turned out great. I have added some extra images so you can see the depth better.

The flowers are made from watercolour paper and painted with Cosmic Shimmers and Sparkling H2Os. And the butterfly was cut out using a craft robo then inked up using the trusty makeup sponge followed by a light coating of pearl cosmic shimmers to finish off. And the finishing touch was a small tag with more flowers.

I am over the moon that ir turned out the way it has, I hope you like it.
