Lily in Pink

Its been so grey and dismal here for ages now, I thought i'd colour Michelle Perkett's gorgeous Lily, the Fairy of Enchantment to brighten up my day. Lily is one of my favourite images from Michelle but this is the first time i've coloured her in pink. You can find Lily here in Michelle's Etsy Store

I've coloured Lily with promarkers and embossed the moon with clear sparkle EP and then cut her out and attached her to the bp. The bps i've used are all downloads from Raspberry Road Designs. I used a MP border punch on two strips of bp and then added some dark green and rose pink velvet ribbon and some prima flower and pearls.

I'm entering Lily in the following challenges:
Pollycraft: sweet pastel colours
Quirky Crafts: In the spring garden plus pink and green
2 sisters: Flowers
Our daily bread: things with wings
Daring Cardmakers: recipe challenge (I image, 2 ribbons, 3 papers)

Yesterday I noticed some signs of spring on the way. There are quite a lot of green shoots peeping through in the garden and little buds showing on branches so I hope spring will be here soon. I  had a really lovely surprise last night when a delivery man arrived with what i thought was flowers but actually was a beautiful butler's tray with lots of pots of spring bulbs! It was from one of my friends at work, things have been pretty rough at work lately and she sent them to cheer me up!! Spring has definitely arrived early here lol. What a sweetie she is :-)

Thanks for popping by today, don't forget to check out this weeks challenge at Michelle Perkett Studios, Jan and her team have set a fab sketch challenge this week!!
