I love this image by Art by MiRan and just had to enter their challenge #3 with it. I used the colours from Color Throwdown's Challenge #286 as well - a gorgeous summery combo and I am also entering this into Charisma Cardz Challenge Anything Goes.

And here's my card. I did print her quite large, so didn't leave much room for embellishments, but I did find this yellow butterfly which I pulled off an old card a while ago and added to my stash pile of embellishments!
