Spring butterfly

Morning all - now I have to be quick - I was expecting rain and the sun is shining - my peas, sweetpeas and cabbages really need to be getting out into the garden so I must make this a short one - who knows how long the sunshine will last? If its not too long - or if the work tires me out (LOL!!!) I'll be back with a tag later. But for now - I was lucky enough to win three stamps from crafty sentiment designs when they released them last week - and here is the first card I've made using them - thankyou all at crafty sentiments designs - they are beautiful and I'm sure will get used over and over again!

Isn't she just beautiful? I've coloured her using promarkers and used backing paper from docrafts capsule collection (pink). I've also punched a sheet of mirri board using an all over the page Martha stewart punch. There's ribbon and lace on there and pearls too - tiny ones in the top right hand corner. I've mounted her onto a square doily - thanks Teresa - and added a marianne designs butterfly. I'm pleased overall with this card - I think its pretty! Oh yes - and I followed Dawny's sketch from over at simon says stamp this week.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Sentiments Designs: Spring Creations
Passion for promarkers: pink, lace and pearls
Joanna Sheen: Someone special
Simon says stamp: Dawny's sketch.

Must got out and tackle the garden now - will probably be back later with a tag - whatever the weather!

Have a lovely Friday and thanks for sharing a few moments with me!
