A touch of Magic!

Well what a beautiful day. The sun has been shining all afternoon, actually got out of the house today(even if it was just to get the grocery shopping!)  At least I got a Kentucky FC before we came home :o)  Yum Yum!

So here is today's card, I have tried to fit this one in with a few challenges as I am behind this week.  Hope you like it!

So, I have used the sketch from Papertake Weekly for this one, and I have used the recipe from Fab & Funky ' 1image, 2 embellies and 3 papers'  The 3 papers I have used are from My Minds Eye 'Spring papers'.  I have used a nestability die for a base for the image , I have inked with pink and black around the edge for a distressed look and I have added the Lace around the edge of it.

The image is 'Devilish Donna' yet another one of the FAB images over at Kenny K.  I have coloured with promarkers.

The sentiment I have created on my computer and punched out with a 1.5" circular punch.  I have again inked with pink and black for a distressed look

I have used a corner butterfly punch for the4 corners of the base layer, matted with black card and used thepunched out butterflies as one of the embellishments, and the orange flat backed gems as the other one.

I hope to enter this card into the following challenges. '1 image, 2 embellies, 3 papers'

Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to read them.
