Cute Card Thursday, Daringcardmakers & Caardvarks

Hi there,

Well a better day today, I got some crafting done when I had thought I would have no time and managed to make the card for CCT that I started yesterday but ended in disaster . Imagine my suprise when I checked out DCM to find they wanted butterfly cards and that was the stamp I had choosen for CCT and Caardvarks wanted winged things as well so 3 in 1! Butterflys and dragonflies are the only winged things I have ( I have to confess I am Tildaless but I love that image with the wings).I thought this particular image looked quite cartoonish,I hope that passes as cute.

The card is based on a sketch by Di Hickman. I'm using sketch's quite a lot lately but I find it gives me a starting point and a lot less to think about lol. Coloured yet again with the hobbyart pearly watercolours, I seem to be addicted to these at the moment. Oh yes and I'm starting early for Valentines.
