Butterflies in my hair

Me again Peeps,

Just a quickie as I'm meant to be celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary so I'm trying to schedule this post without him seeing, hehehe. I did get a card from him saying "on our wedding anniversary" and he had to handwrite 25th inbetween the our and wedding, good old Tesco Express.  Not really up to my quality I think!  However I did receive a dozen red roses, so he is slightly forgiven but still has alot of sucking up to do.

Right, quick, I must get on with this post.  My card today is for our challenge over at Crafts and Me and the lovely Teresa has chosen the theme of "add a flower".  Well this was really hard for me, not. Gosh I'm rambling again, right here you go.........


Isn't the image by Jasmine Beckett Griffiths gorgeous!   Sorry I haven't got a pic of the copics, I've been working on so many images on my desk this month that they all got mixed up and when I did get organised to take a picture my camera had no battery in, grrrrrrr.

Ingredients:-
Image "Butterflies in my hair" by Jasmine Beckett Griffiths available from Crafts and Me
Medium Copics 
papers by prima
Birdcage Die and Fluted rolled flowers are Marianne Design Dies
Tim Holtz Picket Fence Crackle paint (used on the birdcage) 
Leafs and Fence and Swirl are Magnolia Doohickey Dies
Lace, Pearls from stash
Ticket from Tim Holtz
White acrylic paint (unspilt this time)

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

7 Kids College - Texture   (crackle paint and acrylic paint)
Craft Room - Butterflies
Happileigh - Make your own embellishment (rolled flowers)
Magical Monday - Texture
One stitch at a time - Flowers
Sugar Creek - Winged Things

See you on Saturday for the Simply Sassy Blog Hop!
