Thunderstorms and Rainbows

Hi ya everyone!
  I made this card for a few challenges this week.  The first being the Some Odd Girl challenge (also did you know they are having a DT call??) - Use your bright colors.  I chose this adorable stamp called Rainy Mae and can be found in the Some Odd Girl Shop.  I colored her in my Copics choosing colors that would match the bright yellows and blues in this butterfly paper.
I left her shirt white because the challenge at Copic Creations is to color white clothing.  So I just shaded in a few cool gray tones.  The Copic Creations blog is a great place to find tips and tricks with coloring - and the inspiration is awesome!
I also followed the sketch at the Deconstructing Jen sketch challenge blog.  She has wonderful sketches!  Once I colored Mae I followed the sketch and used my Fiskars punch along the bottom.
 Added some brown stitching.  Stamped the sentiment with an Inkadinkadoo stamp in Versafine brown.  I then doodle the butterfly lines following the pattern on the paper.  I added some baker's twine and these sequence flowers I had in my stash.  Lastly, I used my small butterfly punch to make a bottom border.
