Hero Arts Friendship & Valentine's Challenge

Made this card for this month's Hero Arts Friendship and Valentine's Theme Challenge - further information is available here. I made the butterflies a while ago and hadn't used them, you can read about them here. I did some masking and stamping with the sentiment as it is a really old Hero Arts stamp with flowers around it.

Supplies Hero Arts sentiment H704, Hero Arts digital flutterbies and winged friends kits,
Anita's large card blank and envelope, Papermania pp and textured cardstock,
Martha Stewart pansy border punch, Papermania pearls,
ranger industry stickles, pop dots, stazon ink and copics.

I used my new Martha Stewart Pansy punch for the border on textured Papermania cardstock in grey. 

Imagine my delight this morning when I logged on and found two, yes 2! messages telling me that I had won candy over on the Bugaboo Blog Hop last weekend...woohoo!!!  I just adore the Bugaboo images and Jodie Mackrell does freebies on a Friday and her next challenge is 30th January - so be sure to check it out here.  Thanks to Melissa and Rae Anne for the blog candy.. still doing the happy dance!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you all have a great Tuesday.
