Yellow Lily

As we are at the dying breaths of summer, I decided to make something in sunny yellow before I move onto my autumn and winter projects.  Here in the Highlands, many of us still have lilies flowering as they came up so late because of the poor weather.  I love their heady scent and large blossoms.
The image I've used here is a digi from A Passion For Stamps and it's been coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are all Papermania Capsule Collection in Sunshine, a pack I've had for ages, which I've teamed with kraft.
The leafy border punch is by EK Success and the butterfly is an Anita's Flutterdie.
I simply finished my card with some flower shaped buttons threaded with baker's twine, a twine bow, some gems and a butterfly trail of Pearl Pen.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Love to Create - #29 - yellow, kraft and one other, I used green
Tuesday Morning Sketches - #160 - sketch
Crafty Sentiments - flowers
Craft Your Passion - #123 - power of three, I used three buttons
Created With Love - #3 - three of a kind, I used three buttons
Robyn's Fetish - #121 - use a digi
Crafty Creations - #184 - gems and twine
