The card, ribbon, flower and brad were from my stash and the bling dots were from Dovecraft.

Joy (N/A yet)
I used a tall pink bordered glitter card and added one of the larger green gingham pieces of paper in roughly the centre of it with double sided tape, then I added one of the ladies in pink using 3 strips of the thicker double sided tape and then put 2 bits of Sellotape Foam pads on top of that. I added a pink parcel at an angle in the left top corner and a 2nd one in the centre at the bottom which was also at an angle.
I used textured paper in pink, light brown and green acetate, the stamp is an Anya ?? I have added the dots which i have thousands of now in every concievable colour, I tend to do this when I like something new - the green ribbon i had to put on twice as on the reel it looked lovely but once on the card couldnt see the colour at all.
I started my card with a blank white square card, again I used papers from "Hot off the press" and cut the green background sheet to size and stuck it on with a glue roller, then the pink and layered it on the top. Next I stamped the image onto a white piece of card, coloured it in using Jelly Roll pens and then cut it out. I purposely stuck the image to one side of the card in order to put the green check ribbon down the otherside. I used a rub on sticker onto a brad and placed the brad at the top of the card. The card seemed to need something else which is why I stuck on the little gems. An easy card to make, any questions please ask away.
Tina Wenke Stampavie stamp, coloured in with promarkers and with a little glamour dust added. The papers are from the My Mind's Eye 'bloom & grow' pack with coredinations cardstock. I've added a strip of tulle that I've coloured orange with promarkers. The flowers are held together with a little brad and then I've sprinkled them with glamour dust. The brad is also holding the little beaded charm on - I threaded a little star charm and some coloured beads onto some jewellery wire, made a loop and attached it to the back of the flower.
I have used a colour combination I would never have done before. I have used a sketch by Di Hickman Sketch July #2, it is well balanced and has a nice mixture of elements.
The main card is a sheet of A4 card folded to A5 size. The yellow spotted paper is HOTP. All the other papers are textured handmade ones which have come from various sources. I have used a Sizzlits 'Build a Butterfly' die set which has all the separate elements to make your butterfly. I have had them for about 18 months and it is the first time I have used them. I have added a little glitter with a clear Sakura pen.
The flowers are Prima daisies, the gems are from Poundland, ribbon from stash and the rub-on is from a Let's Make Cards pack.
Use a small square card from my stock, 2 scraps coordinating backing paper, layered it over and covered the join with gingham ribbon
Stamped the flower using purple whispers inks, coloured it in using water colour pencils, stuck it onto the card using foam pads then I stamped the fairy using stazon. Coloured the wings and dress using sakura stardust pens, water coloured the face, hair and shoes.
Mounted her onto the flower by taping the lower half of her body and a foam pad to give her head stability. The greeting is an acrylic greeting tile placed on yellow card. Finished the card off by rounding off the corners using a corner punch.
I have used - Cute Companions Especially For You Stamp Set by Jayne Nestorenko, which I stamped twice. One I left uncoloured and the other, I coloured in using Aquacolor Crayons. On the uncoloured image I added sky and grass. The cut out the coloured one and decoupaged on the background. I matted the image on to Yellow and Purple glitter paper and added purple heart brads to the corners.
Using the same papers, as I used to on the main image to create a strip with I then braded 3 flowers on to. I then mounted both of them on to lilac card and added 3 brads under the main image.
For this challenge I chose a Red/Green combo that ISN'T Christmas! The image is by Sugar Nellie and is called Fragile Beauty which I coloured using copic markers. I rubbed some adirondack ink around the image and the oval with some cut n dry foam and drew in faux stitching with a black sakura glaze pen. Adirondack lights inks are really nice to use as they're subtle and build up colour. The background papers are from a set I have, maker unknown so maybe someone can enlighten me! The large flower is coloured with starburst stains in maidenhair fern green and a HOTP great big brad added. The red flowers are from stash, I just cut off most of the stem and curled the remaining stem underneath.
And now let me introduce our special guest for this challenge Lilian Tan. She is very well known in blog land for her amazing colouring using copic markers and the airbrush system. She is also a designer for The Sugar Bowl and has been a guest designer for Sugar Nellie, Belles n Whistles, and A spoonful of sugar and now us!
I used ollyfant stamp (in the garden) coloured it with whispers pens,plain green & pink card from papermill, used x-cut cutter (oval) template my corner punch to make the scallops, butterfly was from papermania and scallop punch from stampin up , a circle punch an peel off.
I’ve used pale pink & pale green to compliment each other.
My stamps are Penny Blacks & the card is finished with a broad ribbon, a silver heart & some punched flowers – with a blob of glossy accent to make them like iced gem biscuits!!!
