Purple is the new pink!

Good Afternoon crafters, hope you are all well.  Over here, i have been busy busy busy making a few cards for a few more challenges. I am now hooked! First up is this lovely card i made last night for the Card Patterns Sketch 142 but i am also going to enter it into the Pile It On, One Stitch at a Time and Mad for Markers challenges.

I used cream, pink and purple cardstock and patterned paper (which i cant remember where from, sorry!). The butterfly stamp is from Hero Arts and i coloured it with Copics and added some silver bling dots. I made extra wings and added them with dimensionals to give it depth. The 'just for you' sentiment is from Ladybug Crafts Ink. The punched circle is a 1 3/4 '' punch and the scalloped is 2''.  The punched edging down the side was made using my EK success punch and the purple satin ribbon was from my ribbon stash.  Hope you like it :)  If you drop by to view, please leave me a comment and i will be sure to visit you to! Thanks for looking :)
