Showcasing EB Ginnie with butterflies

Today i am showcasing Ginnie with butterlies, available from EB digi gallery, this darling image was such a hit with my little girl when she asw it that i have decided to use it for her birthday card, she will be clelbrating her 8th Birthday early next month, so for once i will be well prepared.
I have colored my image with copics, nothing new there.  The papers are new from Amercan crafts and layered with Bazil basics.  I tied a bow in the corner of my card and then twisted the ribbon to look as though it was dangling down the side of the card.  Girls will be girls and i had to add flowers, a few garlands and wire sprigs with little leaves attached to them.
The title of this little darling inspired me to add butterflies all over the card, so i used a MS punch for all the butterflies giving them a good going over of diamond dust, and added a bugle bead to the body part, i layered them onto a darker butterfly punched from another random butterly punch so they would have shadows and then lifted their wings so look as if they are gonna take off.

Enjoy!
