Catching Butterflies

Hello to all my crafty friends, hope you are still enjoying this lovely weather.
I have managed to fit in some time for crafting this week-some things have worked and some things haven't but I guess we all get days like that don't we?
My card today was one that thankfully went together quite nicely-the image is  Saturated Canary and is just so cute. I coloured her with my Promarkers and layered her onto some Wild Rose Studio Butterfly Garden papers from a magazine, I added a piece of pink netting around the card in keeping with the butterfly net and punched the edge of one layer with my Martha Stewart edging punch. I added a die cut flourish and die cut a shape for the sentiment to sit on. I finished it all off with a paper flower and gem and some little punched and glittered butterflies (punch from Tiger shop-I just love the craft bits and bobs in there!) and here she is, hope you like her:

I would like to enter her into the following challenges:
