Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge #18

Wow, these Fridays seem to be coming around so very fast.  It's another Inkspiration Challenge and this week, Makeesha has a very girly picture from which you can be inspired to create:
Here's my card for this week:
I was inspired by the colours and the girly feel to this picture so I made my card with that in mind.  I used Rose Red and Tempting Turquoise along with some pattern paper from Basic Grey.
The stamped image is from the Sugar Plums Party Stamp Set.  I've stamped onto watercolour cardstock and coloured in with inks and aqua painter.
I've also used the Labels 3 Nestabilities as the background for the image. 
I really wanted to include butterflies in this card, as you can see them in the picture too, so I stamped some small butterfly images on the Rose Red cardstock as a background. 
The finishing touches are the bow in some beautiful satin ribbon.  I've attached a brad to the centre over the knot.  I've also added two smaller brads to the end of the ribbon.
The sentiment is from Family Phrases and I've used the Window punch to cut out.
Here's a closer look:

Hi Chantelle,

this is just perfect for the challenge. I really like how the image is up set from its label three background and that bow is just gorgeous!

Such a pretty girlie card. I especially like the big satin bow, and your watercolouring is so soft and beautiful.
