MMSC42, Oh Alice and one or two more

Hi all, this is my card for the new Oh Alice challenge starting this week, using my favourate Sketch Challenge Blog Midnight Madness, took me a bit to work this one out as I challenged myself to use the trickier sketch, the image is from Pollycraft called Clover Dancing with Dragonflies and Butterflies, isn't she cute!! Sentiment from Sweet Peas Stamps (link in sidebar), all papers, ribbons, brads etc from my stash.
This is a close up to try and show the wings using Pearl Ex (from my local store), purple stickles for the heart and little bits on wings
