Card for Fairymoon challenge

I mentioned in  a recent posting that I found a lovely craft shop while on holiday in the Cambridge area called Fairymoon Crafts and tonight I've managed to get time to use a couple of the things I bought there to make a card for their challenge.
The shop is very well stocked with all sorts of lovely goodies such as the gorgeous Xcut butterfly punch and the Xcut border punch I've used on my card tonight. They have a great stock of papers,ribbons and Copic markers. In fact I visited twice inside a couple of days and wish I'd found it earlier in my holiday!
Another great thing about it is that the shop is right beside a garden centre with a coffee shop so my long suffering husband enjoyed himself there while I browsed and chatted!
Apparently they run a monthly candy which will be resuming in September so please nip over and join in the challenge and visit their online shop.
I had a lovely time with Pina (one of the owners) who was really helpful and let me try out some Copics and generally made me feel like a friend as well as a customer! Thanks for all your help,Pina!

Now....onto the card!
I've used one of my own drawings which is available as a digi image from A Passion for Stamps and used the colours lilac and blue for the challenge at Stamp with Fun.
My trusty Promarkers were at hand again for the colouring!
It also fits the challenges at The Pink Elephant  (summer fun) and One Stop Craft (summer fun)

I'll be making some cards soon with the lovely Christmas stash I also bought!!
