Create4Fun #13 & Penny Black #94 & Secret Crafters #76 & An Announcement

Hi girls. Great to have you here visiting my little blog. I'm glad you could find the time to pop in and I hope you are rewarded with something you feel worthwhile.
Sarah (Lil-paper-pixie) and I went to Stampaholics today to a class Siobhan was running on "Resist Techniques" and had a great time learning something neither of us had done before. We really enjoyed it. The men wandered about Perth for nearly 3 hours because they couldn't go swimming - Jonathan, our grandson, had forgotten to bring his trunks with him. I didn't have a lot of blogging time but I think I got round most of my regular pitstops. If I missed yours please bear with me I should catch up tomorrow.
I made this card for three challenges:-
Create 4 Fun where the Colour Combo was Brown, Cream & Pink
Penny Black who had a theme of "Butterflies & Bees", and
Secret Crafters where the requirement was "Pink, Green and Flowers".
I think this card might just squeeze into each challenge.
I used Penny Black's " Garden Friends" coloured using my Copics for my image (it has a butterfly). I used plain brown and pink paper for matting and layering and MME's Hip & Luxurious Basics "Lush - Pink Floral Paper" ans a Backing paper. I added a small Bee charm and added a butterfly cut using a Martha Stewart punch. The other embellies are all from my stash and the flowers are homemade. The card is liberally Stickled and sprayed with Glimmer Mist although it's not really seen in the photograph - it is there, I promise.
I really enjoyed making this card so I hope you like it enough to leave a comment letting me know what you think of it. I love reading what you have to say.

AND
INTRODUCING "AMY"
