Happy Saturday!

Hooray for the weekend :-) Poor hubby had to go into work so I'm catching up on some crafting - it's free listing day on Ebay too so I'm gonna try & get a couple of bits of craft stuff listed (to make room for more goodies lol).

This card was made with the free image from Delightful Inspiration, check the site out - at the beginning of the month you get a free image & if you make a card & link it up you get a free image to use for the following week. It means I get to make card with images I wouldn't necessarily use which is a good thing as I send cards to all sorts of people & they might not all like cute & girly lol. This image I think makes a perfect Thank You card, as you can see I kept the embellies to a minimum just glitter & some gems. The image is coloured with ProMarkers, the papers are from Designer Digitals & I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch again (the butterfly was originally purple but I think the orange looks much better & it links in with the touch on orange on the backing paper). Ooh I forgot to say I stamped the greeting but you can probably see that lol.

I'm entering this card for 7 challenges:
The Sweet Stop - Sketch (although I've just looked & it's a new sketch today lol)
Secret Crafter - Spring has Sprung
PaperPlay - Good Luck/Thank You
Frosted Designs - Think Spring (flowers)
