Sunflowers and Dragonflies Sketch Challenge 3

Happy weekend. Finally, finally...the weekend is here. I've been waiting for some free time from work. Hopefully, I can get some free time to rest, to play and to enjoy the nice weather although it's a bit hot, but it's summer and it only would last for a short time. Better enjoy the sun while we have it!

Today, I am posting a card I made for the currently Saturday Sunflowers and Dragonflies Sketch Challenge. This is my first time, so it's a bit exciting for me.

Here is the sketch for this week's challenge:
Here is my finished card. For some reasons, I really like this card, not sure why, but I feel so satisfied on what I came up with.
I used the Magnolia butterflies. Cut them and layered them to add some dimension on this card.

I also added a K & Co butterfly charm to match up the the butterflies I added.
The DP I used is the DCWV Kitchen Stack and has glitters on it. Here is a closer view on the paper to show the shiny effect.
I didn't put any blush on Tilda this time, just because I forgot! In addition, I was kind of lazy to add it back on her since I've adhered her on the paper. "Sorry Tilda!"
Here is the insides:

I mentioned that I will post a picture of my Copic Markers storage on my last post, so here is the picture. I love to color my images everywhere I go, so sometimes I will keep this storage in my craftroom, but sometimes I will bring the whole thing and move it upstairs to my dining table. I find that it's easy to move around.

Here is the pictures for my Copic Markers. As you can see, I still have lots of space to fill up for more. (what an excuse for buying)

Ok, that's all for today and tomorrow I will be going camping with my husband and my daughter. Hopefully, it will not be too too hot! See you soon and have a nice weekend everyone~

Cabio, wow, wow, wow. Stunning card! I just love the colours you used here--so pleasing to the eyes. As always, beautifully coloured. A new challenge blog I've never heard of--like the catchy name, though. Will check it out.


Are you keeping cool in this heat wave we're having? I'm drowning myself drinking litres of ice cold water.
So glad to see your niece have joined us.
