Faery Emma - The Paper Shelter DT

I finally appear again. Good job being on DT forces you to get yourself in gear. Have to admit to being 'off' for a couple of weeks, must be the shock of the milestone birthday. Also had this new bug that appears to be going round. So my apologies for being missing in action again.

My card today is for the new challenge at The Paper Shelter where this weeks theme is 'Let it be Spring', and about time it was too. I have used a fab new image called 'Faery Emma', knew I had to use her as soon as I saw her.

She is fussy cut and I used Wild Rose Studio backing paper. I added MB Hollyhocks, tree and spring border. The fence is Doohicky and the butterflies are Cheery Lynn.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers/. I also coloured up the hollyhocks and flower border. I added Diamond Sparkles to her wings and to the butterflies and a little stickles to the flower on her hat.  The gems are from my stash.

The inside does reflect the front and the sentiment is computer generated and cut with a MFT Fishtail stax.

As usual our prize is a $30 gift voucher to spend in the store if you use a TPS image or 3 digi's of your choice for any other entries.

I hope you will take the time to pop over and see the fabulous cards the other DT girls have made for your inspiration.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look, and hopefully I will get round to see everyone in the next couple of days
