Flowers, butterflies & fairies

Well it's been a whole week since I last made a card.  My Dad was in hospital again for a few days so I was a bit tied up time wise and when I did take some time yesterday the old brain cells would not work!!! Anyway today I forced myself to make a card and this is what I eventually came up with.

I used the sketch from this weeks challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and then I used the themes from a few other challenges

The Lili of the valley image is coloured with pencil crayons and framed with 2 Marianne Craftables CR1214 die cuts. The paper is from Webster's Pages and I used chalk to colour the edges of the card & paper as well as the die cut frames. The lace and ribbon is from my stash - and as I hadn't got the right colour ribbon I used white coloured with chalks. Finally the butterflies are cut with the Cheery Lynn DL112 die.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'It's A Sketch'
Lili's Little Fairies challenge 'Your Favourite Craft Tool' (being my Grand Calibur and dies)
Bearly Mine challenge 'Fairies'
Crafty Catz challenge 'April Showers Brings Forth May Flowers'
Paper Shelter challenge 'Anything Goes'
Polka Doodles challenge 'De-stress!'
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge 'Blossoms and Butterflies'
