Catching Butterflies in Pinks

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am struggling a bit since my flu jab on Monday, I have had a bad reaction so my arm is all swollen and it hurts to move :-(
Here I am with a Saturated Canary card with one of my favourite digis, obviously as its butterfly themed! ;-) I coloured her with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Copics to compliment the Henbury Lane papers I wanted to use. I have lots of scraps of this paper so I decided to make a card made up of strips of paper cut with Memory Box dies. I also cut little butterflies from a Memory box die to embellish the card, and used a Spellbinders die for the larger butterfly embellishment made of two sets of paper. I then used a Pink 'Good Luck' dome greeting.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

  5. Lovely card - great image. Hope your arm is better soon!

  6. I hope your arm improves quickly, if it doesn't just call your doctors surgery for advice if it's really bad. I've been lucky in that my arm hasn't been too bad after my jab yesterday - provided I don't bump into things and then it hurts. I'm loving your card. It's a great idea to use up scraps as die-cut strips on the card.
