Sentimental Sundays DT post: challenge #198 - Cute and Cuddly

Hi again! I'm back with a new card  because it's time for a challenge #198 at 

This week the theme is:

Cute and Cuddly
(plus a sentiment)

Easy!!! we just want you to make a beautiful project with a Cute and Cuddly image! cute girls, cute animals... etc. anything that is Cute and Cuddly! 
so join us in the Cute and Cuddly fun this week, and take a look at the beautiful cards my fellow DTs and GDTs have made for your inspiration!

Our sponsor this week is Milk Coffee Stamps
They have the most adorable and cute images! take a look at their Etsy shop, you won't regret it!

and this is my DT card this week!

Milk Coffee stamps kindly donated a digital stamp for us to work with and I chose this one called "Soya and Dandelion". isn't she the cutest?

I decided to use bright colours for this card. I'm not usually brave enough to used them, but I'm very happy I did with this card!

The papers I've used are from: American Crafts May Berry Paper pad (the green with white dots paper), Papermania Capsule collection Spots and Stripes pastels (the white and little coloured dots paper). the other two where freebie papers with magazines.

I hand-stitched two of the layers with white thread.

I played with the layers for hours until I was happy with the layout.
I also used a doily as an extra layer.
some of the papers are distressed with inks in pink and green.

As usual, I used my Promarkers to colour the image:

For the hair: Burnt Sienna, Raw Sienna, buttercup
For the skin: vanilla, almond and blossom
For the dress and leaves: lime zest and Apple
for the flower: Antique pink, pink carnation, blossom, pink mittens and blender pen.
For the wings: powder blue

I used a bit of glitter glue in the wings and dandelion.

The Washi tape is a new one from Papermania Capsule collection pastels. I'm loving washi tape at the moment, and I'm building up my collection pretty quick!

The sentiment is part of Kanban clear stamp set.

I punched the butterflies and cut the leaves with Marianne createables leaves die from white cardstock and used  dark green ink to colour it.

I also used flowers from Wild orchid crafts. Gems and buttons are from local shops. The pink and white stripes ribbon is from Hobbycraft.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
