Butterfly Flossie

The sun has been shining all day here in Inverness, and this put me in the mood for a summery project, so after a rummage through a few stamps, I decided upon this sweet Little Claire stamp, called Butterfly Flossie, coloured, us usual with Promarkers.
 The papers are bits and bobs from my scrap box, along with thin white card to make the daisies, which I did with Woodware punches with micro beads in the centres, and for the fancy die cut on the left, which was cut with my new Sizzix die that I picked up half price in Hobby Craft.  I had had a few pounds off it before and I'd been eying it up, but at half price it would have been rude not to!  To make the butterflies, I used a butterfly patterned embossing folder, embossed some mint paper, then fussy cut a few butterflies and stuck them on as embellishments.



 I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
