Challenge Number 2 at The Crafting Cafe

Morning Crafters and any others popping in for a visit!
It's the second challenge over at The Crafting Café and this time the Challenge is 'Your Favourite Colour'. We are sponsored this time by Delicious Doodles
and you can visit their shop here.
As I mentioned above the challenge this time is to use your favourite colour. I love blue! I also love black (when I was young my dad called my wardrobe the bruise, coz everything in it was black and blue - a bit of useless info for you there LOL). My card has a combination of these colours, and here it is:
I coloured the image using Promarkers (listed below). Mostly grey, but with a little hint of blue on the eyes (which I have glossy accented), feather and flower. I decoupaged the butterflies and coloured them blue with a hint of lemon and added glossy accents all over them. I then die cut the image with my Spellbinders and mounted it onto some mirricard. The script in the background is blue mirricard which I have embossed with a script embossing folder and sanded and added a metal corner. The rest of the background is black pearlescent card.

The stick pins and flowers I have picked up from various places along the way, but I couldn't get flowers the colour of blue that I wanted so...TOP TIP: I used my Promarkers to colour white mulberry flowers the exact colour I wanted them!!! I added a heart charm and some fabulous lacy ribbon (can't remember where I got this, but I really NEED some more).
The WISH ticket sentiment I made on my PC, printed, foiled (in blue of course) and die cut with a Whimsy ticket die.
