Just Magnolia Challenge 2

Hi all, and a very happy Friday.

I'm back, after a very long week of work and no crafting. I missed the first challenge over at Just Magnolia, but I'm on the ball with this one. The theme is pink and green. It's one of my favourite colour combinations, so I had to give it a go. There's some fab cards by the design team for inspiration, so why not go and take a look. you won't be disappointed.
I have made quite a simple card this time, not too time consuming as I still have loads to catch up on. The pink paper is from Bo Bunny, and my favourite at the'll be able to tell by looking at my last few posts, at it's featured well in them all.....and I have another little project on the go that will feature more of this collection. The green spotted paper is by Daisy Bucket Designs. I used a glue pen over the background paper and added glitter...I love a bit of sparkle. And I used my Martha Stewart Valentine Punch on the bottom edge.

I coloured my image with Copic Markers. The flowers were punched out using my EK Success Retro Flower Punch, and the tiny butterflies were punched out with a mini punch bought from Tesco. A white organza bow was added to 'tie' the bunch of flower stems together. I really like this card, hope you do too. Thanks for taking the time to look.
