Today I have been playing with a couple of new things and made this card.  I followed this week's sketch but turned it first before attaching this gorgeous paper to the bottom of the card and then adding the sky.  I made the sky by using my new embossing cloud folder with core-dinations card and sanding it.  This is the first time I have done this and really like the soft effect it gives the clouds.  I then added a die-cut picket fence.  Next I punched a photo corner and added it to the bottom corner and decorated it with flower gems.  The next job was to add some glitter glue to the floral paper for a bit of added sparkle.  I coloured my new image with promarkers, cut her out and attached her with foam pads.  Finally I added some butterflies which were die-cut from metallic, sparkly card.  I added some glitter glue to them as well.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
