Sir Stampalot Challenge - Butterflies and Blossoms

To celebrate the end of my studies (though I still have an exam to take in 3 weeks), I allowed myself the luxury of making and entering 2 card challenges. A great way to relieve stress! :)

I have never entered the Sir Stampalot challenge before, but I love their website, and thought I would give it a go.
This month the theme is Butterflies and Blossoms, and there is a fab Tim Holtz compendium prize up for grabs....Woo!
I chose this magnolia stamp, as I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I am originally a Nottingham lass, and so anything to do with Maid Marian and Robin Hood rocks! (see pic of Richard Armitage as sexy Guy of Gisborne to the right >>>) (faint!) and this Magnolia really looks Maid Marianish to me! :)
I hand stitched the panel, used die cut leaves, and used an MS punch for the butterflies. Its also spritzed with Ranger Heritage Gold, so its quite shimmery but less bright IRL. K & Co, K'ology Hannah 6x6 pad, and rosebuds from stash.
Good luck to all the entries in this challenge.

Great - real Robin Hood feel to this one with the leaves & all the detail with the rosebuds & butterflies is quite a treat. Hope all goes well with the exam.
