Strawberries and Butterflies

Introducing the newest addition to my ever expanding stamp collection!  I recently won a Lili of the Valley voucher and this little lovely was one of the stamps I bought with it.  I've coloured it , as ever with Promarkers.
The butterflies were made from Kraft with Xcut nesting dies which are also a new purchase from my local craft shop, Howden's, along with the limited edition summer Promarkers.  I was trying so hard to be good and not spend too much on stash but, sadly, I fell of the wagon.  Oops!
The papers were magazine freebies which I've distressed with my Tim Holtz tool and the sentiment is from a Personal Impressions set.
I've added a subtle touch of sparkle with Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Twinkles glitter glue and butterfly trails with a Pearl Pen.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Willow Sketchie - sketch
Stamptacular Sunday - #163 - butterfly kisses
Paper Sundaes - #120 - things with wings
Lili's Little Fairies - favourite craft tool - promarkers and Tim Holtz distress tool for me

I also want to show you all something gorgeous made by my crafty friend, Alison.  It's just so lovely, I just had to let you see.
At Christmas time Alison, Mum and I all made topiary tree decorations but clever Alison decided to make a spring version too, as on ornament for her living room.
