Hooray for Bank Holidays!

Isn't it great having a long weekend? Especially as I managed to fit some extra crafting in (though I have gotta get the tea ready in a mo so better be quick). I tried a couple of new things on this card: messy stitching (which I really like), I thought this would be hard as I usually like things neat & precise lol but it was very easy & I'm sure I will be doing it again & I made a crepe paper flower from this fab tutorial (mine isn't as gorgeous as Terri's but for a first attempt I'm quite pleased but I'm gonna have to get some pastel coloured crepe paper). The sentiment is free from Raindrop Echo Designs & there are lots of others to choose from. The papers are from Designs by Krista, the butterfly stamp is from Anna Griffin & I finished the card with some gems & lace.

I'm entering this card for 6 challenges:
For Fun - Sketch
Sentimental Sundays - For That Special Someone
Creatalicious - Flowers and Wings
Sir Stampalot - Butterflies and Blossoms
Papertake - Do Something Different
Paperminutes - Butterflies
