Imagination iin bloom: Fuchsias

Good morning my lovelies, I'm rushing off to work as usual but before I go I just wanted to share this card made for the March challenge at Imagination Crafts Challenge where the theme is Imagination in Bloom

The main image is one of my favourite stamps from Imagination Crafts, fuchsias are one of my favourite flowers and I adore this stamp. I've coloured the image with my Graph'It marrkers and distressed the edges with shabby shutters Distress ink. 

I've layered it up over a shaped card front from Craftwork cards, I've used an Imagination Crafts stencil with Sparkle medium on that layer, distressing the edges again with shabby shutters. The card blank was stamped with some of the little stamps from the Fuchsia stamp set and again distressed with more shabby shutters distress ink. 
I've added some ribbon,lace, pearls and a die cut butterfly to finish off.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Cards Galore Encore: use a stamp or digi
Cut it up: green or Spring
Open Minded Challenges: something green
Penny's Paper Crafty: anything but square
Totally Gorjuss: pink and green
