Summer Wedding Tilda, for Simply Magnolia!

Good afternoon Chicks!
Today I am back to share with you my DT card for this fortnights wonderful challenge over at Simply Magnolia!! Which is:
Garden delights!! 
you must use flowers and butterflies.
I have once again used one of the new magnolia stamps, this one is called summer wedding Tilda, although I don't think she needs to be necessarily a wedding image. My inspiration for this card came when I was browsing through my photobucket and spotted an image I had coloured  in lime green and lavender I really love this colour combo, especially at this time of year it is so fresh! the papers are first edition, Daydream. I have coloured the image with my beloved Copics, the butterfly has been frantaged, the flowers are kort & godt, LLC and WOC.
The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
Tilda's Town - Use your stash
Time for Magnolia - Summer with a recipe
A creative Romance - Anything goes
Midweek Magnolia's - favourite colour combo
Magnolia Down Under - Anything goes
Have a marvelous day!
