Hello crafty friends and followers. I hope your week is going well, it's certainly going quickly and I'm really counting down now till next Friday, woohoo six whole weeks off. I always think it feels like it's going to last forever but boy does it go quick. I've got lots of odd days out and a few days away to look forward too as well as some much loved craft time all to myself without feeling guilty!
My card today was made with a Sherry Baldy image I won in a challenge-she really caught my eye and was a delight to colour. I used Promarkers as always and used some Michele R papers. I layered the paper and image with some card sponged with gold ink and made a panel which I also embossed and sponged.
I added a die cut and embossed leafy shape and punched some flowers too. I also used my new
D lites floral fence die which did make me laugh-I made the mistake of not checking the size of it before I ordered and was expecting a much bigger die, I did chuckle when I opened it up and saw the size of it. Must check all the details in future!! A little butterfly, lots of glitter and some pearls finished off my card:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
