Belle of the Ball

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a great weekend.
Todays card is made with the fab Belle of the Ball image from Phindys Place.
I coloured her with copics.  I decided to have another go at lots of stitching and think I may be improving as again I used some of my snippet pile!
The swirl is a Marianne die and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart Punch. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.






I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - Fab Sketch
CES Challenges - Seeing Red
