Three Simple Rules

Good morning everyone,
I've used one of Lili of the Valley's 'Go For It' Quotable stamps for today's card. I absolutely love these stamps and this one is definitely something to live by. The papers are from the Heartfelt pad and these cracked paint designs have to be some of my favourite LOTV papers! I've distressed the edges and added Walnut Stain distress ink to the Kraft layers. The butterflies are from a Pion Design Vintage Garden cut-out sheet and I added some diamond dust to the tips of the wings. I have also used:
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts (the darkest flower is from the Ribbon Girl)
Pearls and pearl string - Samuel Taylors
Lace - Live and Love Crafts
Pink pin - Ribbon Girl
Heart pin and burlap - from my stash

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Lili of the Valley - Take Two (papers and stamp)
Ribbon Girl - Summer (summer for me is flowers, butterflies and pretty colours!)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' - Pretty in Pink

Thank you so much for looking, I really appreciate it. Have a lovely week!
