Picked especially for you

This is a card I have made for this months Cupcake Craftroom Challenge - Spring Bouquet.  I have used another of my Joanna Sheen stamps, this one is from her Favourite Flowers collection -  Flower Bouquets and is called In a Box, it has been sat in my stamp drawer, unopened since it arrived last June.

I coloured the image with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  The papers are from one of my well used  Bearly Mine Designer Extreme CD's and the card stock is Kraft.  I have inked the edges of the papers, Wild Rose Studio Sentiment and Die-namics die cut butterflies with distress ink.  The ribbon, lace, flowers and pearl heart are all from my stash and the leaves were punched using Punch Bunch punches.

As usual I have decorated the inside of my card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craftroom March Challenge - Spring Bouquet
Just Some Lines Saturday Challenge- Spring Cleaning - use at least 2 items that are over 6 months old (stamp and CD - well just about everything with the exception of the sentiment stamp)
