Rain Girl Thinking of You

Hi there and welcome to another Wednesday and some new challenges. The first new challenge I would like to tell you about is over at I Love Promarkers where IKEsART digis  are sponsoring us for our Anything Goes challenge. I have used Rain Girl   for my card:

I coloured the image with the following Promarkers: Henna; Lime Zest; Lime Green; Lime Twist Ltd ed; Antique Pink; Pink Carnation; Tropical Orchid Ltd ed; Budding Rose Ltd ed; Orchid; Amethyst; Plum Preserve Ltd ed; Powder Blue; Cornflower and March Hare Ltd ed. I also used Metallic Gold Letraset Marker.
I rounded the corners and layered onto a pearlescent green cardstock. I then layered a green marbled pattern paper onto a lilac card base and add a blue floral pattern to the bottom of this. The image was layered over these. To finish I added a sentiment and a die-cut edge (using a doily border that was from the same collection as the doily that I used to back my monster card) and a ribbon bow. I used colours that complimented the image for all my layers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Catch the bug - outdoor fun (playing in the rain)
CCM #192 Tic-Tac-Toe (Ribbon-Digi-2patterned papers)
 Scrapbook Stamp Society #120 Blue and Green
notjustcards #46 Anything Goes

I would also like to share our finds from the butterfly catching day out at the local RSPB wetlands reserve:
 Can you see it?? Ok it is not in focus but once you find it you can tell what it is lol/
 Meadow Brown sunning itself

And who is this?? As yet unidentified caterpillar!
