A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Punch It Out

It's challenge time again at A Gem of a Challenge, this week our theme is "Punch it Out", so why not get those punches out and play along?
 I've used Butterfly Chloe for my card, you'll find her in the Pink Gem shop here. She's been coloured, as always with Promarkers, to match these pretty, summery, Wild Rose Studios papers which were a magazine freebie some time ago.
I've really embraced the theme this week, using no less than six punches on my card!  The Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set and the Nellie Snellen punch and emboss set, I borrowed from my butterfly loving fellow crafter, Alison, I also used a Crafts Too tag punch and Papermania flower punches.
I stamped a sentiment onto the tag with a Personal Impressions stamp and added a baker's twine bow.  I finished my girly card with some pearls and a butterfly trail of Liquid Pearls.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sister Act - #20 - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend - Butterflies
Inky Impressions - #121 - Things with Wings
LEJ - #66 - Furry Friends
