Thank You Card

Here is a thank you card I have made using the Delicious Doodles image called "Crocus and Butterfly".  I have coloured the flowers and butterfly with my Promarkers and kept to Spring-like colours, coloured the frame and highlighted areas of the flowers and butterfly with my Pan Pastels and added Stickles to the butterfly and flowers.  The backing papers I was given and went for delicate papers as I didn't want to detract from the gorgeous image.  I have finished the card off with some lace, ribbon, buttons tied with twine, stamped sentiment and some pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
