Butterfly Girl

 Good morning, hope it's been  a good week and you're ready for the weekend. I shall be away for a few days from Sunday- my brother suffered a massive heart attack at the beginning of January- thanks to the paramedics and doctors, who were brilliant, he's making a good recovery. He has to take things a lot more slowly but the doctors are very pleased with his progress and he's well enough for visitors. I'm really looking forward to spending a couple of days with him but keeping the visit short as I don't want him overdoing it!

My card today is my DT card for our challenge at Crafty Catz, this week lovely Ginny is hosting and the optional twist is 'Anything but square'.

Our sponsor for this challenge is

I made a circular easel card featuring Butterfly Girl, image coloured with Copic markers, stamped sentiment and butterfly DP from stash. I've fussy cut a few extra butterflies and raised them on foam pads to add a bit of interest and dimension.
As always, there's no need to follow the twist to play along at Crafty Catz, we love to see whatever you are making so just follow the link to add your entries.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend

Hi Chris,
so sorry to hear about your brother lets hope he makes a wonderful recovery.
They can do so much nowadays to aid recovery.
My tony had a heart attack in the nineties and had 5 stents in is ateries over the coming years and lived for another 30 years with them.
Wasn't his heart that got him in the end either.

Love your card and the wonderful shape and easel design.
The image is gorgeous and coloured perfectly as always.
Love the butterfly paper used and your butterflies are beautiful.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
