Hi Everyone. There's a new challenge starting today over at My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge and this week we want to see your creations celebrating something!! My aunt had asked me to make her a card for an old friend who was celebrating her 60th birthday and being as she'd just been to Iceland to see the Aurora Borealis and loves Angels and Fairies, etc. I decided to use an LOTV image to make this card (lots of pics, sorry!):

Images - Lili of the Valley coloured with Spectrum Noirs and Stickles.
Papers - MME Lost and Found 'Blush'.
Dies and Punches - Nestibilities Labels, Cottage Cutz 'Floral Doily', MS Butterfly punch, Marianne Designs.
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Sentiment - Whimsy.
Other - Lace, Pin, Pearls and Gems from stash, all Edges distressed with TH Vintage Photo DI, Numbers cut with Slice machine.

I'm also entering my card into the challenge over at The Sketchy Challenge cos I've followed their sketch (Challenge #20 - Chantal's Sketch)and Wild Orchid Challenges Week 46 - Things with Wings.
OK, I think that's it from me for today - I keep trying to catch up with everyone but with Sam being on Easter holidays at the moment, I keep getting waylaid. I'm hoping to get one day in front of the computer. BTW - Is anyone going to Ally Pally on Sunday?? Don't forget to pop over and check out my talented teamies cards over at My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges and make sure you join in, it's a pretty open challenge, so I'm sure you can come up with something!! Bye for now.................xx
