A new challenge at Diva's by Design

Good morning friends.
Hope you are having a lovely week.

Today see's the start of a new challenge over at Diva's by Design. We are being sponsored by Iva Nova Chest and the theme is buttons and bows. The Design Team have some gorgeous cards to show you and it would be lovely to see you enter the challenge.

The card I have made today has lots of my NEC crafty stash to embellish it.  I love using new goodies for the first time.
I will be adding a direct link to the products used at the end of this post.

I have coloured the image with Distress Markers (I will add the colours later).
I have been longing to make a card which isn't square and here is the result.
The papers are from LOTV - it was so hard to actually break into this pad!!!
I have used the gorgeous LOTV image So Many Presents. Isn't she just adorable. The butterfly die is from Joanna Sheen which is now my favourite butterfly die. 

The mum banner is a from Katie Sue Designs. Couldn't resist buying this on Saturday - moulds are my favourite embellishment at the moment. I have used Wink of Luna pens to highlight the letters. The flowers are from WOC and Live and Love Crafts.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Ladybug Crafts - For a special lady
Created with Love - Girly
Eureka Stamps - No Square Cards
OLLCB - To a Special Lady
My Time to Craft - Mother's Day / For a special lady
Addicted to Stamps - Buttons, Bows and Bling

Thank you so much to my new followers. I will be catching up with my new and old followers

Have a lovely and hopefully crafty week.
