Better late than never

Sorry my card is on late today, I am having problems with the old peeps and flashing lights but better late than never as the saying goes.
Over at Flutter By Wednesday we have an open month so as long as you have a Butterfly or Fairy on your card why not join in and play along with us.Dottie´s World have a theme of Circles, Dare U 2 Digi Stamp want to see Punched Shapes or Die Cuts, ABC are onto the letter E for Embossing and Pile it On want to see Three Dimensional ... phew quite a while since I challenged myself like this rofl.





Anyhoo onto my card. I have coloured Daisy with Copics and got the good ole glamour dust out to her wings then popped her up with 3d pads. Paper is from the Boxer pad, bugged pearlescent card with the Paisley folder and cut out with nesties, corners are cuttlebug too and leaves are sizzlets. Retro punched flowers from leftovers and roses from my stash.Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a lovely day.
