Thanks X3

Happy Saturday!
Margaret is getting her girls off to their dad's for the summer, so I am here tonight with a post.  This card is FOR Margaret.  I had a fantastic time visiting with her and the girls.  So I sat down tonight, and while listening to my San Francisco Giants play the Chicago Cubs, I made this card.

I CASED this card from Irene's Scrapbook: Fijine Dag!.  It's a step card with a twist.  The left side is whole, while the right side has 3 steps.   I used a very happy Tilda (Margaret LOVES Magnolias) and colored her in purples using Copics and Spicas, then fussy cut her.  Julia will tell you that purple is MY favorite color.  I used a few of my newest dies, picked up in Colorado last week!!!  The tree and flowers are all Memory Box.  The grass is an MFT die.  The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch, and remind me of Claudia, flitting here and there.  The sentiment (SU!) is stamped with Imperial Purple Versafine and a Nestie die was used to cut it out.   I added Swarovski crystals to all the flower centers, sentiment and butterflies.  The cloud paper is digital and is from Shery K. Designs.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - add butterflies
Secret Crafter - anything goes
Card Makin' Mamas - feeling punchy
Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes
Just Magnolia - anything goes
Phindy's Friday - pile it on
