One for fun!!

Morning my luvly friends!!  Today I have a card which I've made just for fun and to enter a few challenges which I've not done in a long while.

I have used the gorgeous image by Krista Smith called "Springtime" which I've had since she was first released and that was yonks ago hehe.  The dps I have used are by Pion Designs, all matted onto coredinations cardstock.  I dug out the old sewing machine and stitched around the image.  The sentiment is by LOTV, the butterflies from my darling friend Paola Levi, ribbon and gems from my stash, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Papirloftet and the lace from Wild Orchid Crafts.
As always I have coloured her in with Copics.  Must say I had so much fun making this card, I luved every minute of it!!  Will be entering my card into the following challenges :
Saturated Canary - "B" (Blue, butterflies, brad)
CLP - Sketch
Wild Orchid Challenge - Autumn colours (hope mine fits the bill?)
As requested by several I'm now editing my post to add the colours used :
Hair - E29, E25, E35, E71, E51
Clothing - B99, B97, B95, B91, R59, R85, R83, R81
Grass - G99, YG67, YG63, YG21
Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your week.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxxx
