Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Sakura

Good morning and welcome to another of my inspiration posts for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week I have decided to use the gorgeous Sakura for my card. As soon as Ching-Chou released this one I knew I had to have her for my butterfly addiction! Isn't she just gorgeous?!

I made this one into a Mother's Day card for my mother-in-law on Sunday and used some pretty pastel colours for her.

This card is also for 
Kit & Clowder's colouring challenge in their Facebook group to colour some wings. I coloured my wings in the same flicking way as I attempt to do my hair and love the effect it has made.
Die Cutting Diva's Challenge #207 Welcome Spring (Butterflies are always a signal to me that Spring is here!)
