Very pleased today :)

Why do all your ideas usually come to you just before you go to bed?! Honestly! 

This happened to me last night, but I did end up making this card anyways and I must say, I'm really pleased with the outcome :) So without further a do... here is my card :

I am entering my card into the following blog challenges..

Simon Says Stamp Challenge was to use "spots and/or stripes" I couldn't find any stripes that was the right colour so stayed with the spots. Had much fun stitching the card as well! The cotton kept breaking much to my enjoyment LOL! The sketch is fab! Infact, I've just used it to make another card as well.

Here's a few close ups of the detail..

Close up of details and butterflies.

For the glittery twizzly things, check out Mandy's blog. She has a tutorial on the blog :) Really effective but really messy when making them, well I made a mess anyways lol. 

Butterflies have been punched out in the co-ordinating cream card. The bodies have been coloured in using pro markers, the same as the image. It was hard colouring on the cream card tho. The card seemed to soak up the pens. But it turned out okay still.

Thanks very much for popping by :)
