Card and some sad news

This was to be my next DT card for Digital-Ink Co but Judy has found it necessary to close the operation down - there are some really sad people out there!! I was pleased as punch to have been asked to join and work the fantastic images and designers. I wish Judy and all the creators and designers all the best and lets hope we can stay in touch.
I have used the sketch at Papertake Weekly which is shown below. There is a fab prize there too - $25 from Simon Says Stamp no less. 

The image I have used is by Stitchy Stamps and called Butterfly Love. I have coloured her with my Inktense watercolour crayons and added a generous dollop of glitter in various shades of pink, purple and crystal!!! The background is a cuttlebug folder called Perfect Paisley which I have chalked over with bright pink chalk.

The frame is a Spellbinders Frameabilities called Classic Frames. I used pink pearlised card so the embossing would show up nicely. I have then used some patterened papers the dark pink one is from Triple Treasures Cd from Create and Craft and the large dots one is a Funky Fairys paper. I have layered both of these onto what I have used as kraft - it is actually the inside of some rolls of wrapping paper!!! Everything has been distressed and inked where possible and in the case of the Whitewash Core'dinations card sanded as well.

However, the thing I am most pleased with is the flower which used to be on my daughters hairband until she snapped it!!!!! It is made of pale pink organza ribbon with gold edging and has three pearls in the middle.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges
