For My Auntie

This card is for my auntie who is very unwell.  I'm hoping cute Henry Enjoying Spring (a Whiff of Joy image) will make her smile.   I have used some new K&Co papers, two Martha Stewart butterfly punches, an MS leaf stamp and punch and a Nestability label die for the framing.  My favourite elements are the pretty flowers made with a Papertrey Ink Die and topped with a Recollections sun punch.  Henry was coloured with Promarkers and Copics.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Creatalicious - 33 Butterflies and Flowers
Papertake Weekly - Cute, cute, cute
Deep Ocean -  25 What a Wonderful Woman
Crafts and Me - 83 Punches and Dies
Charisma Cardz - 18 Pink and Girlie
