Honeysuckle Butterfly from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, well it looks like summer is back with us with lovely blue sky and sunshine. I'm just going to take the dogs to the park and make the most of the weather but before I go I just wanted to share this card made with the beautiful image from Honeysuckle Butterfly, one of the new releases from Chocolate Baroque (you can find all the new stamps here)

card features this lovely image stamped with Memeno Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with pencils. I've die cut the bottom of the card and dusted around the edges with Picked Raspberry Distress ink.

The background was made by simply applying distress inks (Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Ripe Persimmon) to my craft mat, misting with water and swooshing my card though the ink. To finish off I've added a hot pink bow and a pretty button from my stash. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: anything goes
Card mania: butterflies and bows
Creative Knockouts: whimsical wings
Frilly and Funkie: summer garden
Simon Says Stamp: Anything goes
Sister Act: anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown: anything goes
