Colour Create Challenge 44

What am I like!!  I saw this sketch over on the Sugar Bowl challenge and though- mmm, like that and it would be great for the Colour Create challenge as their optional extra this time is circles!!  I then proceed to make the card with  this little lovely from the Tracey Coates Beautiful Butterflies set from Aspects of Design!!  (Sugar Bowl has to be a Sugar Nellie image, doh!!)  The CC challenge is to use the colours aqua, cream, brown and khaki (with the extra -circles).  I've coloured her with Distress Inks and added the butterflies and leaves into her hair over the stamped ones to give it a bit of dimension.  I've also added some little pearls into hair for extra prettiness!  DPs are Garden Stack Papers from DCWV and can't remember where I got the stripy or the floral backed paper!!  Lots of stickles glitter and the sentiment is a Penny Back stamp.

Just watching the scrummy Jake Gyllenhaal on the tv at the moment then must toddle off to bed!!
