Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Summer Theme

Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps and this week's theme is Summer. As a child I remember trying to catch the beautiful butterflies so this picture reminds me a lot of summertime fun after school is done for the year! I started out using Raspberry Ripple for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I then used Authentique collection called 'Cherish' for the rest.  I then cut out a tree using a die from Memory Box called 'Arboscello Tree' using paper from the Cherish collection along with a fence from a die called 'Floral Flourishes - Fence by Joy! Crafts. I then sponged on Chestnut Roan and Tea Rose to add dimension. I then cut out some grass for the fence by using a die from Poppystamps using green glitter paper.
I then stamp the girl with a butterfly from Crissy Armstrong stamp set called 'Liberty's Friend' for Whimsy Stamps using black memento ink onto shimmery white paper. You can find the Crissy Armstrong Stamps here in the store; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_142/Crissy-Armstrong-Collection.htm  along with the black memento ink here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_302/Memento-Ink-Pads-from-Tsukineko.htm
I colored her using Prismacolor pencils except for her skin which was colored by Copic Markers using E01, E11 and E13. Then I  added some glitter to her bows on her dress, hair, butterfly and bird on the fence. I used Melon Mambo seam binding ribbon for a bow.
