A Magical Day

I was recently asked to join the design team of the Dream Valley Challenges blog - an exciting opportunity to meet other cardmakers and get to use some fabulous images from the various sponsors.

Today's card is for my first challenge which is sponsored by the fabulous Paper Shelter - home to lots of cute images for all occasions.

So the first challenge I am participating in has a very appropriate spring theme of:

Pretty In Pastels

Here's my card:

What I've used:

Image - The Paper Shelter Ellie
Coloured with Spectrum Noir markers
Papers -  Papermania - Spring Burst
Die cuts - ovals - Spellbinders Nesties
Die cuts - butterflies - free die from a magazine
Sentiment - computer generated

Isn't she sweet - she totally rocks lilac hair - she was a delight to colour! The tiny butterflies were created with two die-cut layers - a lilac bottom layer and a vellum top layer to create the effect of movement. I've also added some tiny ivory flat-backed pearls.

So have a pop over at the Dream Valley Challenge Blog to see some more lovely inspiration from my teamies on the design team and have a chance at winning 3 digital stamps from The Paper Shelter.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Seize The Birthday #209 - 3 shades of green
Fairy and Unicorn Challenge - anything goes fantasy
The Paper Players - Spring in the air
Angie's Digital Stamps #50 - use green TOP 3

Thanks for visiting
