Anyone For Tea ?

Well what a day it's been here in the East Midlands, one minute the sun is shining and next it's pouring with rain. Still at least my Dad's happy as his water butts are starting to fill up - in fact I wouldn't be surprised if it was him doing a rain dance !!
Anyway it was a perfect excuse to stay indoors and make a card. I've used a Mo Manning  digi called 'Teacup Fairy' coloured with Promarkers and added some Stickles on her wings. The background paper (which you can hardly see) is called 'Butterfly Garden' by Wild Rose Studio. I used Spellbinders Impressabilities 'Flowers' to emboss the white card which I then matted onto some cream hammered card and I used a cake paper doiley under the image. The dies are all Cheery Lynn  - the flowers are made using miniature rose and the greenery is bits cut from a fanciful flourish. Finally I added a silver peel-off sentiment and a couple of tiny punched butterflies which I dabbed with Stickles. Unfortunatley the lighting is poor and the sparkles aren't showing up on the photo.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Bearly Mine challenge 'Sketch Time'
Cheery Lynn Designs challenge 'Lots of Layers'
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Things With Wings'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'Birthdays'
Stempelgarten challenge ' Birthday'
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'Things With Wings' (my 2nd entry)
Deep Ocean challenge 'Let's Sparkle' (my 2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
