Another Friday!

Friday, 4 May 2012

Here we are again on another Friday and this one is in to May!  The year is flying by!
And since we've flown through another fortnight it means that there's another challenge up on the Alphabet Challenge Blog.
It was the lovely Hilde's turn to pick a theme and as we're up to G she chose...

G for Garden!

So here's my card

The image is by Sugar Nellie, Sweet Art Ebony called Flowers which I've had for years and don't know if I've ever acutally used it before!
I coloured her with my copics: Skin; E21,13,00,0000,R20. Trousers; V09,06,04 Top & hat; R59,39,37.  Wattering can; RV34,32,10 Flower; YR24,21,14.  Hair; E57,55,53,51
Then I used nesties to cut her out.

The papers are also oldies that were rather large snippets!  I'm afraid I don't know who they're made by as the name was previously cut off.

The butterfly is from a chipboard sheet from Stampin' Up!  I drew a design on it and then filled in each section with glue, covering with glitter and letting it dry before I moved on to the next colour of glitter.  It takes a while to do this if you are using lots of colours!  I then added a few Swarovski crystals to bling it up even more!!

It's an easel card and the top of it is a nested flower shapeability.  I drew around the die and cut out the shape for the mat.

The wee tag is also from a Stampin' Up! sheet and I coated it with glue and attached it to some of the paper before trimming the excess and sanding the edges.  The sentiment is from Wild Rose Studios and the ribbon is from my stash.

So take yourself over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog and join in the fun with us!
