My First Project of 2013!

Happy new Year everyone!  here's hoping that 2013 brings good things to all.
Here's my first card of the year, I made it with things I got for Christmas presents.  The pretty Little Claire stamp was form my friend Alison and the gorgeous Kanban papers were from my friend Margaret, thanks so much girls for my lovely gifts, I had such fun playing with them.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and added a border of Glamour Dust round the edges of the topper and patterned mat, as well as glittering all the butterflies with it too.  The doily was made with a new Xcut die I treated myself to with Christmas money.  I have to say I'm really impressed with the quality of it, it cuts beautifully and seems much more sturdy than the Xcut nesting dies.  The die cut butterfly was done with a Spellbinders die from my Jeweled Flowers set and I added a trail with Liquid Pearls.  Ribbon, bow, pink nailheads and it's done.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
ABC - #10 - sparkle
Kaboodle Doodles - #152 - anything goes
Flutterby Wednesday - #220 - open
Robyn's Fetish - #140 - use a doily
