Spring Willow

Hi there, we've had some beautiful spring weather this week so I decided to make a bright sunny card using the lovely Willow fairy from Michelle Perkett Studio (you can find her here in Michelle's Etsy Store)



The lovely lace edged dotty bp is from Raspberry Road Designs, doiley, lemon velvet ribbon and cotton lace are all from my stash. I coloured Willow with promarkers and added a little yellow glitter to the flower centres and embossed the sun behind her with clear holographic ep for extra sparkle and shine. You can see the effect a little better in this pic

I made the leaves using stamps from Sheena Douglass, coloured with promarkers and cut out. The flowers are made from tissue paper circles, scrunched up and layered with faux pearl centres made with a viva pearl pen. I used a viva gloss pen in yellow for the yellow faux gems in the corners.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
2 Sisters: make your own embellishment
Creative Cottage: spring has sprung
Delightful challenges: pastels and ribbon
Delicious Doodles: Floral fantasy/lots of flowers
Do you stack up: Shine on
Fairy Fun Friday: Oh so Spring
Flutter by Wednesday: Open challenge with a butterfly, angel or fairy
House of Gilli: pastel colours with bling
I did it creations: welcome spring
Lexi's Creations: ribbon but no knots or bows
One Stop Craft Challenge: Angels and Fairies
Papertake Weekly: Its a mom thing/girly
Passion for promarkers: in the garden
Sew Many Cards: Spring Fling
A Spoon full of sugar: ribbon, pearls/rhinestones/flowers 

Thanks for calling by, you still have time to enter this weeks challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio, the theme this week is Blue and Brown and if you don't have any of Michelle's images pop over to Michelle's group on PCP, pick up one of the beautiful free images and join in the fun and chat :-)

  36. Hi, your photos aren't showing on my computer. don't know if it's my computer or if you're having the problem I had this weekend. My photos disappeared off my blog and I couldn't get them back. It wasn't till the middle of the next day that I was able to get them to post again.
    thanks for playing with us at Paper Pretties.
