CACB DT Card - Challenge 5

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful New Year and are not feeling too hungover today.
This is my DT card for challenge 5 at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog The theme this time is 'New Year, New Inspiration' and we'd like to see any new techniques, ideas or goodies on your projects.
My card was inspired by my Martha Stewart 'around the page' punches, which I've used to make a frame for this stunning image of Ann's. It's called 'Iris' and the plain backing paper is 'Pastel Lilac' from the 'Polished Brights' collection, both of them are available from Crafty Ann's.
I've finished this off with a pretty, sparkly butterfly, a sentiment tag attached with a tiny brad and some card candy glittered with Stickles.

Card Details:
* Image - Crafty Ann's 'Iris'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Plain paper - Crafty Ann's Polished Brights 'lilac'
* Lace paper - Joanna Sheen 'Pastel Lace pad'
* Punch - Martha Stewart 'Around the Page - Fan'
* Everything else from my stash

As always, I've really enjoyed visiting your blogs to see your lovely creations and I'm hoping that you'll manage to join in again this time.
It's an ideal opportunity to show off all your new crafting goodies, the theme of your creation is entirely up to you and don't forget you have a whole two weeks to join in.
