Thank You Flower Pot

Hey, only just found time to make a card while taking a break from revising for exams. This is for the lady who lives next door to my student house and shes been so lovely and supporting to us.
I started by colouring the image, a Tiddly Inks Digi image, with promarkers. I then edged her with Versamagic pixie dust ink. I chose papers from a pile of scraps; edged the image with yellow paper and attached my backing papers. I cut a flower circle using a Fiskers punch and used this to pop out from behind my image. I used homemade flowers backed with yellow and pink flowers to embellish, as well as pink lace and matching card candy. I used a 'Thank You' sentiment, which I raised up onto the image. To finish, I cut a butterfly using Cheery Lynn Designs Exotic Butterfly dies, and embossed it using three different cosmic shimmer embossing powders ...Hopefully the lady next door will love it :)
