House-warming card

Here's a quick card I made for a friend who has just moved house and is having a bit of a stressful time of it. I made it big (A5) and took it along to the choir which we both sing in, and they all signed it. We took up a collection and I'm going to get her a gift card for the local DIY store so that she can get something nice for her new over-grown garden.

It fits nicely into the challenges for Basic Grey "wings" (the olive green paper is BG but I can't remember which collection), Colour Create "olive, brown, cream and black", Creative Card Crew "green" and this week's Spoonful of Sugar sketch.

Thanks to Glenda for the lovely butterfly! Glenda got the alcohol ink bug and made hundreds of butterflies all in different colours - too many to use so she gave most of them away, bless her, and I got a little surprise envelope in the post one day. Their only trouble is that they are too beautiful to use! All Sticklesed up and teamed with the right colours, this one looks just gorgeous.
