Where did last week go?

Hi everyone,
This week has flown by and I have not posted, where did the time go? Well this card really was a challenge and I'm not really happy with the outcome, had a terrible time with the wings and even now they are still patchy. Used twinkling H2O's on them and couldn't get them to cover well. I am entering 3 challenges with the card.
Mo's Digital Pencil - Anything goes
Creative Inspirations - Colour challenge, Turquoise, gold and cream
CCEE Stampers - Summer + flowers or floral ribbon.

The image is one from Mo's Digital pencil
Coloured with Twinkling H2O's
Cut using my new Nesties.
The paper is an old We R Memory Keepers and punched with Martha Stewart border punch.
The cream flower base is from Kaiser and everything else from my stash.

Thanks for looking, till next time

Hi everyone,
Today I have made a thankyou card for Creative Card Crew. I thought I will try and use more vivid colours, most of my cards tend to be pastel. Well, I coloured the image in brighter colours but The papers still edged towards being pastel. Its a start, will have to try harder next time. The card will also fit another 3 challenges:
Sassy Cheryl - Embossing
A spoonfull of sugar - Floral delights
Whoopsi Daisy - Ribbons and bows

The image is Sassy Cheryl and coloured with Lyra Aquacolour. The paper is from a Provacraft paper block. I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, everything else is from my stash.

See you next time,
