Butterflies, candy and a GDT spot

Morning all! Hope you're all feeling fit and well? I'm good - I took the car in to get MOT'd this morning and had to run the 4 and 1/2 miles back home - but I made it! Yipee!!!!!

Now before I share my post for today with you I'd like to tell you about my good friend Kaz's candy - donemark - she's looking to get 100 followers and is offering a candy package as an incentive to get a few people over there - go and have a look - I'm sure you'll not regret it - she makes some gorgeous cards!

Also some of you may know that I'm GDT for dudetimedoodles this month - and over at their site there is the opportunity of a freebie image to use to try and win the GDT spot for June - why not give it a go! I've really enjoyed the experience so far - and I'm sure you would too!

Now then onto my post - something a little different - but very frilly and fancy:

I've made this card with the fussyandfancychallenge in mind that is butterflies, ribbons and punches but wanted to use my new Tilda stamp too so I've linked it with the bingo challenge over at officialmagnoliainspirationchallengeTOMIC this week (embossing, shaped card, butterflies). The papers I've used are meadowlark from prima and I've coloured my image with some promarkers. I'd also like to enter this card into the challenge over at guylousinimitabilityGuylou's which is punches, dies and diamonds this time and also magnolia-liciouschallengeblog which is a colour challenge this time (pink, green and yellow/ecru).Finally with my flowers added it would be rude not to enter this in thedoyoustackup DYSU challenge: use a flower!

Hope you all have a good Friday!
