Scrapper's Delight Paper

Hello back way back in the beginning of July Janis from Scrappers Delight asked me to be a Guest for her blog and products for August. How nice was that she had seen a crd I did with Draco the dragon and liked it. Well she sent me a fab image part of a set called Pixie's Corner Digi set to play with. You can find it here they are such good value and if you havent had a peep I would definitely say go look.
They have a sketch challenge running for the next 2 weeks so still plenty of time and you dont have to use her image but if you do you can enter twice and we would love to see you using a image.
So onto my card using one of the images and the above sketch.

i have used my promarkers to colour the image and added some glitter to the wings. Used a spellbinder die for the image mount. A MemoryBox die for the corner, M.S. Punch for the strip behind a sparkly ribbon from  the papermill. Sentiment is a freebie from a mag. Flower and button from Stash and DP is from a neglected pad I have had forever. i stitched the layers of card and DP paper together only a second outing for my little sewing machine..

For my card I used this fab Hydrangea stamp which I also have a sticker to match but tried my hand at colouring with my promarkers. Picture isnt brilliant but I placed the sticker next to it and I must say was fairly pleased with it. I am not the best person to colour flowers. Dp is dovecraft and some other I have had for ages. This is a 8x8inch card which was commissioned by a neighbour for his ex wife. How nice is that. Use a M.S. punch for the butterfly. The Happy Birthday is from a old SeeD set i have. Memory box diecut in top corner and the oval was cut with a Xcut die. Some ribbon and a few pearls coloured to match to finish. I have done the inside to match.
