Another card for a couple of challenges

This card has taken me longer than I'd hoped (was hoping to get a few done tonight!) I used the colours over on The Colour Create Challenge and thought they'd be pretty easy but they turned out to be more of a challange than expected! The colours were Lemon, Pink Sorbet and Chocolate.

I followed the sketch on The Pink Elephant and the challenge on Scrappy Frogs this week was Fairies.







Some close ups of the Tildas





I really like the effect I managed by ruffling the ribbon around the edge of the semi circle. Whilst making the card I wasnt too confident I was going to like it, but now I think its one of my favourites this week!








Papers were free from magazines. Ribbons was from stash. I wrote on the ribbon with fabric paints.

I masked butterfly tilda when I stamped dragonfly tilda so it can look like they're holding hands.
I coloured them in with H2Os and then glittered their antenna and wings with doodle bug glitter and a sakura quickie glue pen (quickly becoming my favourite now tool I think!!)
