Fairies, Flowers & Butterflies

Hi Everyone, hope you've had a good day.  Rain again here this morning but brightened up a tad this afternoon.  Our poor bees have been cooped up in their hives for days.  Yesterday in the glorious sunshine they were very busy having a good old stretch of their wings and hopefully gathering some nectar - don't expect much of a honey crop this year.

 Anyway, for today's post I have made a card using  LOTV stamps - I think she's so cute.  I've coloured her with Copics, I added some sparkle to her wings and pom poms. Tim Holtz Distress Ink antique linen (one of my favs) was used around the image.  The background papers are digital from Bearly Mine Designs, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, the leaves I punched with a L.Em punch,  ribbon - Making Memories which I've had for year's and found in my stash.  I punched out the butterfly with a punch I bought when I first started crafting, I love the shape.  I ran it through a cuttlebug embossing folder to give it some detail and added some bling.  The mats are Nestabilities, sentiment is LOTV and I added some bling.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Lili's Little Fairies (Sketch)
Anything Goes (Things with wings).

Have a great evening.  Linda X
