Southern Girls Challenge & Artfull Crafts Combined post


A double up post today sharing a card made for the SOUTHERN GIRLS CHALLENGE for this fortnight which is Angels & Fairies and also my post for ARTFULL CRAFTS - MY FAV COLOUR COMBO.

I have used "Free Falling Fairy Keisha" from Just some lines who are our sponsor over at Southern Girls for this challenge.
I am currently very smitten with the new basic grey releases, What's Up & Shine On. They both have a gorgeous spring/summer feel and I am definitely feeling like some warmth in my life at the moment. For my card I have used the What's Up paper pad with the lovely pink and blue combo.
I coloured my image with copic markers and highlighted parts of the image with stickles. I also used the following Marianne Creatables dies... Flower & Leaves (L0156), Five Small Flowers (LR0145),Butterfly (LR0113). Thanks loads for coming and checking out my card and I hope you like it.


I am entering my card in the following Challenges.......

Marianne Design Divas - Anything goes
Fab & Funky Challenges - Make your own flowers
Stampin plus challenge - anything goes
Papertake Challenge - All things Girlie
