Dutch Dare Card challenge - #180

For Jen's blog hop click here.

Hello Everyone!!!  I haven't made the announcement on my blog but I did post the badge :D  I am now part of the wonderfulDutch Dare Card Challenge.  I'm so very excited about this!!!  I've been playing their challenge for awhile when I could and now I get to be a DT!!!  How very cool is this!

So this week the challenge is Floral Fantasy.  And our wonderful sponsor is 
Crafty Sentiments

For my DT card I have used an image that I had used previously but that I really love.  It's from Eureka and it's called Butterfly and Bluebonnet. 
I usually would have done this card in blues... but I had a request for it in orange so I was happy to oblige.  I think it turned out good anyway :D.  When you have a beautiful image you can't really go wrong I find.

The paper is from KI- Memories I got it at Michaels I think last year (yup it's a stop on every vacation in the States!) and I used some cardstock from DCWV - bright &Jewels.  Some of the other DP are from my stash (I just love it when I can take some scrap and use it).  I have cut out the image and the paper underneath with Label 1 spellbinder.  I used my scallop and classic circle as well for the sentiment.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored using copics.

And a look at the special sentiment that I created for this card.

I hope that I will have the chance to see your wonderful creations for this challenge Dutch dare card challenge.

I've had a lot of trouble finding sentiments in French so I made my own and I thought you might like it :D  So here's it is if you want.  Please send people to my blog to get it and don't share on websites.

I followed this sketch with I adapted a bit to make a 5x7 card:
