Bella with presents - Especially For You

Hi everyone, I've just got back from a trip out to spend some more of my birthday money on craft stuff. Today I bought a Tim Holtz clock die, a gentle leaf die, some flowers, an embossing folder, some magnetic storage sheets, 3 promarkers and a Martha Stewart round the page punch (scallop 3-dot). Looking forward to creating with it all. I have started to play with the stuff I got on Saturday so here is my card...
 The image is called Bella with presents and is from Wild Rose Studios. I've coloured with promarkers and used pink sakura glitter pen on the 2 small butterflies. The doily started life white and has been coloured with spun sugar distress ink. The backing paper is from the Wild Rose Studios Bella paper pack and is matted with a pinky lilac paper, which I've also used as the liner. The flowers are docraft with a pink brad and a gem heat fixed on top. The lilac butterfly brad has been in my stash for a few years (good to use these things up at last). The bow is a ready made one by docrafts. The sentiment is a Daisy and Dandelion message tag. I love this image, I think it's really cute. I just hope I've done it justice! Here's a close-up..
