Flutter By Wednesday Challenge

I thought I'd enter this card into the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge. I used my beautiful new Sweet Pea Stamp. I found the tutorial for this card style at StampARTic here.
Excuse my finger in the first image. I hadn't located my velcro dots at that stage and I needed the front of the card to stay closed. I coloured her with my copic markers. The gorgeous paper is from my local craft shop, I just had to have it as soon as I saw it. My fav colours.

Please don't look too closely at the rub on greeting. It was transfering really well to start off with and then it shifted..eekkk. I had to go in with a black pen to fill in the missing bits. Doesn't that just rot ya socks.. Anyhoo, I hope it's not too noticeable. I made the little flowers with a couple of my punches. (Oh my goodness..I have only just realised, there is a piece of sticky strip backing on the bottom of this piece. OMG..how did I not see that?) lol.. Please disregard that little piece of red, it's definately NOT a part of the card. grrrr.

Let me know what you think.

Take care xo Jackie
