Thankyou Card

Wow, it's been like Winter here today and it is actually Summer! I had a long sleeve skivvy on during the day and had a cardigan on tonight at home. We had pizza for tea and I went and picked it up and it was very chilly. I just got home and to the front verandah when it started to rain. Our youngest granddaughter is staying with us again overnight and tomorrow. She still has a bit of a cold, not too bad though. Adrian has had a cold for about a week and I haven't succumbed to it yet, so fingers crossed, LOL. I don't want it!!!
My Thursday craft group was very small today, just me and my friend, Jane. Little Layla got dropped off half way through the afternoon. Jane managed to make a couple of cards and I did some colouring of images. It's good to have some on hand when I don't have a lot of time, although it sometimes takes me quite a while to work out what to use on the card.
This is what I came up with today.
The basecard is SU Real Red, a layer of white card. I distressed the edges and then also ink distressed the edges with SU Basic Grey. The DP is from My Mind's Eye. I used a piece of lace and mounted my sentiment over the top. The frame is from a clear set of BoBunny stamps and inked in Basic Grey. The sentiment is from SU clear set,Curly Cute and inked in SU Real Red. The butterflies are from the same BoBunny set, inked in the Basic Grey and coloured using a blender pen and Real Red ink.
I added 3 pinky brown pearls in the bottom right hand corner. The inside has a layer of the DP and then a deckled oval diecut in white with the edge distressed with Basic Grey ink and I added another butterfly.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
