DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #37 - Monochromatic

My DT Card for Lexi's Creations    Challenge #37 Monochromatic
The challenge this fortnight is to create a project  in monochromatic colours.  Sponsor:  Letraset an online store dealing with things creative (eg: markers, pads, adhesives, tutorials and well go take a look....)

I used the digital stamps 'Elaina'  and 'Fairy Dust Butterfly' from Fairy Dust CraftsI printed out three copies  of the butterfly but only left the fairy dust showing on one. It is such an elegant butterfly   and the fairy is so pretty, love them both! The flowers were handmade  using punches.
I only ask to be free.  The butterflies are free.  ~Charles Dickens
