Bear and Butterflies

Hello Everyone, 
Well this is my first card for a week! the last 3 posts were made and scheduled last weekend as I wasn't feeling very well. My temperature was going up and down like a yo yo and I had a swollen throat and just felt generally naff! Almost a week later after a course of antibiotics and I'm starting  to feel like my old self!
I even felt well enough to make a card today!
I've used an LOTV stamp called 'Bear and Butterflies' and coloured him up with my promarkers. 
I'm not so sure about this card, it feels a bit too fussy- I must still be poorly! lol
The fence  and the large butterfly are Marianne Creatables dies. The smaller butterflies are done with a Martha Stewart punch. I've finished of with a bit of bling!

I'd like to enter the following challenges
Lilies Little Fairies - In the Garden
Cute Card Thursday - punch drunk 
Stampin for the weekend - Bugs and Butterflies
Simon Says Stamp- photo Inspiration (summer colours)
Mariannes Design Divas - Animal Antics
Divas by Design - A summer Theme
Papertake Weekly - 3,2,1 (3 punched butterflies, 2 stamped butterflies, 1 die cut butterfly)

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog today, and for all your lovely comments, they mean alot!

Hope you are feeling better Lorraine.
This little guy is really cute... I like how his glasses are sitting on the end of his nose. Great colouring and I like the summery look of the card with that lovely paper and all your pastel embellies.

No such thing as too fussy when it comes to cardmaking! I LOVE this card! I adore the fence and the colours are fabulous. So sorry you've been so poorly - hope you get better really soon. Have lots of rest (okay, you have children and I KNOW rest is impossible!) but try to do a bit less! Big hugs, Jayne xx
