Thanks for stopping by, if you've time to leave me a comment that you be great - all are gratefully received!

I'm not sure who I will give this card to yet, and for what occasion so I've not added a sentiment. It's actually based on a card I won on a Tonic show on Create and Craft way back in 2015! At the time I made a card myself based on it but stuck pretty much to the same design, you can see both cards here Pink butterfly. I was sorting through my stash and found the papers I'd used so thought I'd make it again but with more of my own input into it, plus the challenge theme.

I hope you like the card I made and that you will join us at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog this month, we'd love to see you there.
