Mo's challenge dt

our weekly fab challenge for Mo's dp 2 challenge blog is up and now that i am all better, well i must be cos i am back to being late with my posting, better late than never!
for my "favourite color combo challenge card i decided that i do love lilac and green or some form of purple and green for boy cards, the image i am using is "fixer boy" available here from Mo's store.

i colored him with my copics and added some inking around all the edges.  I love fininshing off boy cards with stars and another favourite of mine is to add buttons to boy cards, they always work so well.
the paper is  sponsored by my BFF so i cant tell you where its from or what make it is.

a quixk peek at the inside of my card where one could write their own personal greeting

the charms are from the never ending stash.

have a great weekend

the Paper Shelter challenge dt

 A fab new challenge with the above photo inspiration at the Paper shelter challenge blog and i have used this darling "Mucha influence Spring" available from the Paper Shelter shop HERE i just love the newer images that we are getting to use they are all delightful.

 i added loads of teeny tiny pearls to the little flower blossoms that are floating around the image, and i really wanted to give her a soft etheral quality so stuck to the light colors when coloring her with my copics
 a quick snap of my floral details that i layered with leaves punched out from the Nellie Snellen punch and emboss punch
And one of my flourished using my pearls from my stash.
