Chasing Butterflies

Hi, welcome again to my small piece of blogland, was out again today with friends crafting and coloured some images so have got some more up my sleeve for future cards. The weekend is nearly here. Some of my friends and I are going off to the craft show tomorrow, (same one I went to on Thursday but different friends) probably this time will be looking at the bead stalls and not so much the papercraft ones. One of the little stamps I bought I will have to take back it is a clear stamp and I had to pull really hard to try and get it off the acetate backing, it has actually torn the stamp. Hopefully they will replace it. If I wasn't going again I suppose I would just have to lump it as they are interstate companies and I can't remember their business name.
Well, the card I am sharing is no. 3 card made with the DP and textured card Shirley gave me. There's not much left of the A4 card but I still have more of the DP so I can probably still make more. Shirley, you didn't realise how resourceful I am, ha, ha, ha!!!
I've again used a Blue (possibly SU) as the basecard as I think it goes really well with the DP and green card. I used a Martha Stewart picket fence border punch and wrapped a piece of green and white gingham ribbon around it. The image is a freebie and is from Lili of the Valley - a pack of 20 images that came with a magazine and they are all lovely! I coloured it with Copic Markers and added a little ladybug in the right hand corner to tie in with the sentiment from SU which also has a little ladybug above the "T" I cut the image out with a nestie label and sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa.
I would like to enter this into FlutterbyWednesday's Challenge -FBW #178 Thankful/Gratitude Challenge and of course it must have an angel, fairy or butterfly on the card.
Also into the Come and Get It Challenges - Anything Goes,
and into the challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks - Challenge #62 - Die Cuts
