Card for the Sugar Bowl

I got some time to play tonight, so I had a look through my stamps and decided that I would use one of my old Sugar Nellie's to make a card for the Sugar Bowl where there is a fab sketch by Marlene.
Normally when I enter their challenges, I do the extra option which this time is Summer, but I missed out the theme and just followed the sketch, which I rotated.

I used an older Gorjuss Girl and coloured her with Promarkers but unfortunately the colours don't look the same here as they do irl because it's night time here and I just finished the card and took a pic (otherwise I would of forgot about it if I left it ill morning! lol).
The papers (which I love by the way :)) are all My Minds Eye from the Lost & Found collection. The only trouble is working out which side of the papers to use because they are both gorgeous!
I inked all the edges of the papers with Antique Linen Distress Ink and also inked the edges of the border.
the pretty butterfly which I added some pearls to, is from Little Snippets Etsy Store....LOVE Geraldine's butterflies, they are sooo pretty! Oh and the sentiment is from a Stampendous clear stamp set.

A close up of my gorjuss girl to finish.
Still not happy with the colouring because I am using that horrible paper I bought the other day! ....mind you I don't really need an excuse, my colouring is terrible anyway!! lol

Thanks for stopping by. Oh and if anyone else has any suggestions about paper/card for Promarkers that I can get in the UK, pleeeease let me know because this paper is driving me crazy!! lol

Such a pretty and creative card. I love the postmarks and the butterflies. I just bought some Martha Stewart Lace Butterflies that look very similiar to yours. I just used one for the first time yesterday, and love the way it looks.
