House Mouse GDT card for April

This is my first card as GDT for April on the House Mouse Challenge. I was really thrilled to be chosen, as not only do I love these stamps, but it is the only challenge that I have never missed - apart from holidays!
The theme this week is Easter and the challenge is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamps. The team members have created some fabulous cards for inspiration, so please check them out.
For my card I used Stampabilities 'Easter Surprise' and coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from a Laura Ashley pad and I punched the butterflies from the paper and vellum and then stickled. The sentiment is from comp.
I am also entering this card in some challenges:
Simon Says challenge - Easter
Stampin for the Weekend - Easter
Sarah Hurley - Easter
Everybody Art - Easter
Die Cut Dreams - Easter
Dream Valley ChallengeThings with Wings

Thats it for now and thanks for looking, and don't forget to check out the fab cards on the House Mouse blog.
