Lili of the Valley & Tickled Pink Challenges

Good morning and happy Sunday!! We're having a chill out morning here and I've just treated the kids to breakfast in bed... and you know what that means.. CRUMBS!! lol. 

Today I have a couple of cards I made just for challenges. 

I just love Lili of the Valley stamps, the are soooo cute!! This card is for their current challenge -  My Favourite Colours. 

It's not hard to see my favourite colours are pink, white and green. Isn't this image just the best??!! I found the sentiment to go with it on Create with TLC. 

I used copic sketch markers to colour her and used Star Dust stickles for her skirt, because apparently all tutu skirts should be sparkly - according to one 5yr old Princess.

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The crown charm, lace and trim are from my stash. 

Challenges - 
Sketch Saturday  - SKETCH
iCopic Lover - Colour combo 
Cute Card Thursday - Shiny Happy cards 
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - sparkle/glitter/bling
Paper Pretties - card for a child
Top Tip Tuesday - Stitching

My next card is for Tickled Pink Challenges, who want to see some fabric on your entry. I've been looking at these images for so long and I finally took the plunge this week and bought a digi - Fairy Kira. 

She's about 5" tall and she's what I call 'a fairy with attitude'!! lol. She's been coloured using copic sketch and a touch of glitter has been added to her wings. My papers are My Mind's Eye and from the Stella & Rose 'Hazel' collection.

 The clock charm is one of many that I picked up at the NEC in November. I really hope to get back to the NEC next month as I loved being able to see/feel what I was buying before buying it!! We have no craft stores here that carry embellishments like these and I mostly shop online.

Other challenges - 
Stamp Something - something funky
Totally Papercrafts - use a digi
Wags 'n Whiskers - punches
4 Crafty Chicks - fairy/angel/butterfly
Creative Belli - felt or fabric
