Save the Best for Last


Morning Crafters,
This year's last LLC challenge and the very last one we'll do is due to go live today.
However; it's been one of those weeks...you know when ordinary life and other committments get in the way of crafting, so we're postponing the challenge for a couple of days.

Sorry about this; I promise it will be worth waiting for though. 
Since it is going to be the last last one, we have come up with a VERY SPECIAL THEME.
We have definitely "saved the best for last".
I'll say no more...you'll just have to wait and see...hehe :-D

Follow Your Dreams ♥️

Hello, crafty friends! It's Karen here with a wee bit of inspiration. Originally this post was to be Christmassy, but after getting married last week my heart has been aflutter... so butterflies and flowers it is. ♥️ My card features an all-time favorite collection: Pion Design's Paris Flea Market.
This set is for my sweetest and dearest friend in appreciation of how richly she blessed me and my sweetheart on our special day. Rather than a typical thank you, I am encouraging her as she does us.. and pairing it with a little keepsake wedding cake!
These beautiful Pion papers set a perfect backdrop for a butterfly garden of hope and dreams. ♥️
The whimsical Wycinanka Louvre Papillon frame has been adorned with pure white WOC blossoms and a sprinkling of Star Dust. This is one of my ultimate favorite chippies! It is encircled with Rockabilly ruffle trim, the most darling polka dot trim I have ever used. Wycinanka's Summer Wedding Border adds extra butterfly love.
Isabelle lace and shabby seam binding provide delicacy and softness. The butterflies throughout are also from Paris Flea Market. ♥️
Lastly, the sweet cake has been adorned with equally sweet Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. Pink Pearl Garland is woven throughout, while the stunning Pearl Lace with Beads trims each cake layer.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥️

Hugs and blessings,
Karen

It's one of the first Mo's images I ever coloured and I particularly am in love with her!
 
I coloured her up with my loved Copics; here is the finished card:

I hope you liked this little girl as I do and that my card brought a little bit of colour in your day :)

Have a lovely Sunday everybody...

  a BIG hug,
Franz.
