Papertake Weekly- 100th Challenge!

Gosh, i have been busy, my nan's birthday's in a few weeks so i decided i wanted to make her something really special. I also wanted to enter a card into this weeks Papertake Weekly, as they are celebrating their 100th challenge!! :O) This week you get to choose from 100 challenges... i've picked my favourite things:
This delish K+Co Paper, my beloved Prima Flowers, stamping, and my MSBP!
So i think my card fits in nicely lol.

For the front, i have used this mega cute Fox Chasing Butterfly available to buy from Nikki, at Bunny-Zoes Crafts. I stamped him out several times to achieve 4 layers of decoupage, these have all been coloured with whispers and watercolour pencils.

Here's A Close-Up:

The gorgeous little charm was sent to me by Jacqui {thankyou xx} and i've attached it with some thin chain and a jump ring.

I made this by attaching 2 A6 White card blanks together and decorating. This is a picture of the next thing you'll see when you open the first panel. I've used a PM fabric embellishment, and some Co-Ordinations cardstock.

The next picture is the inside, i've used some clear stamps from the CCSR for this as i though they fitted the first image quite nicely. I also left a space in the middle so i can write my message.

What i used:

Paper: K+Co
Cardstock: Co-Ordinations
Stamps: CCSR- Doodles, PM, and CC. Designs- Fox Chasing Butterfly.
Mediums: Whispers and watercolour pencils
Embellishments: Prima Flowers, Roses, Iced Gems, Brads, Charms, all from stash.
Tools: MSBP

Thanks for looking, i'll get my candy together tomorrow! :O)
