Special Friend

This is a card I have made using a Delicious Doodles image called "Iris and Butterfly".  I decided to go with a colour scheme of purple and bright green - yikes!!!!  I have coloured the image with my Promarkers and highlighted areas with a silver gel pen and some Distress Stickles glitter glue.
The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Gingham and Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots.  I have fussy cut around the image (yes, the antennae weren't easy but I cut a bit wider than I need and then colour over it with a black Promarker so it blends in without a white edge) and layered onto the backing papers.  The card has been finished off with some stitched ribbon, card candi, faux stitching and Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
