Things with wings

Hi..well I'm late today with my DT card for CRAFTY CATZ, i usually have my post done and scheduled but last night was just to busy to get i sorted, so better late than never...
The challenge is "THINGS WITH WINGS" yet another easy one for you all, Our sponsor is the Stamping Boutique, and they gave us some fab images to use.
Now this card caused me lots of problems, if one thing goes wrong there's always more, Firstly my ribbon caused a problem, so had to add  more butterflies on than i wanted too, then my pearl doodles got smudged, so i had to add my corners and then re apply my doodles.but i got there in the end,
Thanks for stopping by, your visits are so much appreciated.
i will add this card to these other challenges,
I love promarkers.......Purple & pink
Simon says stamp.......anything goes
