Besties UK Challenge - Anything Goes & Flowers

Good Morning and welcome back to the latest challenge at Besties UK ... today we have a new challenge the theme is

Anything Goes (A) - Flowers (B)

(more than one flower )

You can enter the challenge here 'My Besties UK' we have some fab digis as prizes the rules are up to 3 entries with a Bestie Image and one without so you can enter up to 4 times ....

You can enter an ANYTHING GOES project or a Flowers project ( More than one flower must be stated on your blog to qualify for the extra digi)

This is my design team card for the challenge, I loved this image she is so cute and reminded me of picking peas when I was a child would I have ever found a sweet little fairy at the bottom of the garden, she can be purchased at the store here

Flowers and leaves from Magnolia dies.



1 /2 sheet bazzil basics lilac card
1/2 sheet white embossed card
White A4 card x 2
Printed image - img377

Spellbinders dies - Grand labels 4, Elegant Labels 4, small labels 4
Magnolia - Leaf, Vintage Daisies

To make this card I folded an a4 piece of card then cut the grand labels 4 on the fold to create a base card, I then cut the same label size from the embossed card,
I cut the elegant label 4 from the lilac card and the image using small labels 4, I affixed the lilac label with glue gel to get some dimensions and coloured my image with copics.
I affixed my image with tape to the lilac card,
I cut out an assortment of flowers and leaves and layered them up with brads in the centre then arranged on one side of the card.
I tied a triple bow with a bow maker and affixed this with glue gel.... simple but effective 

I used the following copics to colour my image
Skin - e000, 00, 11, 21, 04, r21, rv10

Bubbles/Flowers - v20, v22, v25, v28, r21
Hair - e15, e17, e18
Leaf - yg21, yg23, yg25

I hope I have inspired you to take part in our challenge .... thanks for stopping by today to visit
