Butterflies and Bows

Hi All
Has been an awful day here, never stopped raining
I hope it has been better where you are.
My card for today is a Digi stamp from
called Girl Flower Butterfly by
Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.
I think it is just so beautiful and was a pleasure to colour.
I glazed the image, but unfortunately it does not show
in the photo.   I did have to be stricked with myself, to stop
putting embellishments on it, but I still managed a fair few.

Hope you like this offering, and would love to read your comments.

I will be entering this into the following challenges.

WOW! Janet, this is fabulous! I absolutely love everything about it. The digi stamp makes me want to have a go! I love the colours and the frills and flounces of the ribbon and the flowers are luxurious! This is just my cup of tea!
Good luck with the challenges.
