Butterfly Gazing

I so love my butterflies and when I saw that The East Wind's Challenge #13 was to make a kid's card, I knew I just had to use this pretty digi of Aurora watching the pretty butterfly! What little girl wouldn't like butterflies?! LOL This card is also for Open Minded Crafting Challenge #17 The Last Days of Summer (well the butterflies will soon be going to wherever they go once summer ends so I thought this image fitted this challenge), Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #249 to use the gorgeous colour combo below and for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge Anything Goes with the optional twist of adding something that flies.

And here's my card...I love her hair in this rich shade of reddy-pink.
