Card made whilst on holiday

I couldn't go away a week without taking some of my crafting stuff with me and I did manage to get a little "time out" to have a colouring session and make some cards.  This card is made with a gorgeous Inky Impressions image.  I've had this little girl for sometime now but never printed her off and coloured her in which is such a shame.  I used papers that made their way from the dining room table - to my craft trolley on wheels - on holiday to Yorkshire - and out again from my craft trolley to sit on the dining room table again until I use them up!!!  I have used a new "toy" I got after winning a Cupcake Craft Challenge and had some money to spend in the Simon Says Stamp Store.  I bought some Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads and also a Tim Holtz distressing.  I'd normally used a nail file but wasn't really happy with the outcome.  This little tool is FAB and certainly distresses the edges and gives it a wonderful texture I could never get with a nail file!!  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and also some sparkly Sakura pens but no matter how I tried with the camera you can't really see the sparkle too much and you can't ready the wording on the sentiment.  It does say "Get Well Soon" and is from Dawn Bibby along with the die-cut/embossed butterflies and dragonfly.

I can fit this card into the following challenges:

Flutter by Wednesday - Sparkle
Totally Papercrafts - Distressing
Raise the Bar - Let's Spring for it!
Saturday Secret Crafter - Get Well Soon
One Stitch at a Time - Torn, distressed or shabby
Crafty HO's - Pastel Colours
