A Gem of a Challenge - recipe

This week at A Gem of a Challenge we have a recipe to follow... and we all know how great I am at those, right?  Lol, they're not my favourites I'm afraid!  So, the recipe chosen by the lovely Christine, is 'buttons, bows, bling & butterflies'... the most I can say for my card is that I did manage to include everything...



I've used the pre-coloured version of the very cute Jodie in Dungarees - printed her out a few times on linen card and then cut her out and layered her up, which you can hopefully see on the second photo.  The paper is a digi one from Raspberry Rd, with a circle cut out of the middle so the blue card blank shows through.  The pink flowers are Prima 'meadowlark', white flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, sentiment is LOTV and the butterflies were cut with Kars punches.  Button, thread, gems and pearl are all from my stash.

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last card - such a nice welcome back!  I'm feeling better all the time, apart from being very tired still... I've been trying to catch up with some orders and DT cards, so I should be back to regular posting for the next few days.  Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, will be round to visit as many of you as I can later :o)
