Hi There Card Using Conie Fong Penelope Poppy with CTMH True Love Paper and dies

Hello friends!  How are you?  I finally colored another image.  I have been having so many headaches and migraines that I have had a challenge finding a time when I didn't have one.  The weather has been crazy here; with lots of different temperatures; so I think that may have something to do with it as well.  

I created this card using Conie Fong "Penelope Poppy".  I didn't realize until last week, that I had never colored this beauty.  I love Conie Fong digis, especially the ladies/girls with long hair.  I love coloring hair!  

I am also excited to be using CTMH new dies.  We have several of them and they are my type of dies.  4 inch Doily, 6 inch Lace Border, stitched squares and rectangles, flowers and so much more.  They are amazing. The stitched dies are different than any I have ever seen.  When you cut them out; they cut two stitched frames.  One is a full one and the outside one is the border one.  I didn't use the border one on this card; but I am saving that piece for another card at a later date.  I am so in love with these new dies.  I actually used two of the full pieces on this card; but in different colors.  You know how I love to mix things up.  LOL!

Using CTMH Doily and Stitched Rectangle thin cuts
Also CTMH True Love Paper Pack (new)
I used CTMH Sapphire cardstock behind it so you can see the butterflies.

Using CTMH White Daisy behind the card
Makes the Butterfly border harder to see; but the card looks better.  LOL!
