Lots of New Goodies

This card has been made for the challenge at Elphine House Australia "Add Some Metal", using this dig image created by the amazing Elisabeth Bell.  After I took my oldest son and only granddaughter to the airport I spent the rest of the day working on this card.  I used the dark card stock for the background because I wanted you to be able to see all the details.  Here is another picture without the dark background.
Yesterday I received my order of the new butterfly dies by JOY Crafts from Ecstasy Crafts and the gorgeous new Maja Design Papers Sopfiero from LLC.  Distressed the edges with TH Milled Lavender DI and colored the image with Copics.  The flowers are a combination of WOC, Magnolia, and LLC.  The metal corner is from WOC and the stick pin creation is my first,  The doily's were sent to me by my friend Judy from the UK and Fran-tiged with Shabby White Embossing Enamel also from LLC.

Entering the following challenges:
Elisabeth Bell World Challenge - A Little Yummy for Your Tummy
Addicted to Stamps - Layers
"C" is for Challenge - Flowers
Everybody-Art-Challenge - Butterflies
Papertake Weekly - Old, New, Borrowed, or Blue
