Hello little butterfly!

Hello folks how are you all doing, good I hope.  Well I'm happy as its Friday and the beginning of the weekend YEH!  We're seeing family tomorrow my mum, sisters and I are all descending on my aunt for the morning and having a big cooked breakfast together so should be fun.  We do it maybe once a month or so and its great to catch up.  The kiddiewinkles love it as they have cows, chickens, ducks, geese, pigs and they've just got a couple of little lambs as well and they are still being bottle fed so they're going to have a go at doing that - thats if they can get past me first :)
Anyway, moving on to my card.  I dug out a couple of Magnolias for this one.  I've also coloured with Prismas onto Kraft card and love the softnest of it. 
Image:  Magnolia Tilda 'hello little butterfly' and 'shabby fence'
Medium:  Prismacolor pencils
Paper:  K & Co. 'garden collage' very old paper pad
Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts
Dies:  Spellbinders 'floral ovals', Tim Holtz on the edge 'butterflies'
I didn't mask these images together this time but coloured Tilda separately and cut her out and used glue gel to 3d her slightly.  You can just make it out in the side view piccie.

The usual last piccie is a close up.  Really happy with how this turned out, really pleased with the fence although I ended up covering quite a bit of it up in the end.  This card was one that came together really easy and I love it when that happens.

Prismas used
Skin:  light peach, peach, burnt ochre
Dress:  pink rose, hot pink, cloud blue, blue violet lake, violet blue
Hair/boots: beige, light umber, dark umber
Fence:  white, 90% cool grey
Grass/leaves/butterfly:  lime peel, olive green, marine green
