GDT Card for Elisabeth Bell's World

After winning a challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World, I was asked if I'd like to be guest designer for the new challenge, which starts today.  The theme is "1, 2, 3, and a Tag", you must also use an Elisabeth Bell image.  I chose to use one stamped and die cut butterfly,  two rows of bunting, and three handmade flowers, along with a kraft tag and Elisabeth Bell digi, that I coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with Star Dust Stickles and Glossy Accents.
 The pretty papers are Lili of the Valley, Timeless Victorian, I distressed the edges and inked some with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  The loopy border was done with a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set.
The large bunting was made with a Stampin' Up punch, the smaller bunting with a Joy die.  The flowers were made with a Woodware punch, and were inked with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, and given Flower Soft centres, the foliage was cut with a Marianne die.  The butterfly was stamped a die cut with a Hero Arts Sizzix stamp and die set using more Seedless Preserves ink.
The final touches were a Papermania Bellissima sentiment, some large pearls and a trio of lilac gems.
