Hello Everyone....

Wednesday today...3 more sleeps, then off to my Sons for the weekend to cut down loads of flax bushes which have been neglected and have turned into a snail haven...

Plus he is getting his house painted and the plants all need to be cut who would he ask??...

A new challenge for FLUTTER BY WEDNESDAY   and this time we have a sketch..

Me and sketches...mmmmm....but I did it, without too much hassle...

I used this gorgeous Fairy from a Clear stamps set Pergamano "Summer Fairies"..

Papers are Prima "Botanical" ribbon and pearls from my stash....

A close up of the image,wings are glittered and all sparkly...coloured with my Faber Castell from them.

And the side view...

Here's the sketch for this week by our  talented KATHY..

So hope you can join in this week, there was certainly some stunning creations last week...well done to everyone who joined in.

Harry keeps nudging me to go play with him and nearly knocks me off my chair..

Thanks for stopping by....

Kathy said...

GORGEOUS! Love the image and your soft pretty coloring. Such a stunning card. Glad the sketch didn't give you too much trouble.

Pia S said...

The sketch challenges have become my favorites! I love seeing a sketch and how everybody makes it their own! I think you did great with this one, and what really makes your card special, to me, is the wonderful color combination of blue and yellow. The different DPs and ribbon blend so well together, and you'v even managed to color the image using the same color scheme!

Really delightful card. The image and all the elements are quite spring looking (something I'm so ready for). The white daisy flowers are a perfect embellishment.
