A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Challenges 4 Everybody #21 - Anything Goes

Hey peeps!  What a busy Sunday morning I'm having ...... I'm back with another ANYTHING GOES challenge at Challenges 4 Everybody.

This next fortnight we are sponsored by the fabulous Lacy Sunshine and I chose to use the adorably cute, 
Lil Fidget ....

I made a butterfly easel card to sit Lil Fidget on - the card was a little tricky as I decided, in my wisdom, to design and hand cut my very own and wasn't quite sure what the outcome would be lol.  I'm pretty pleased with the result as I think it goes nicely with Lil Fidget and her beautiful wings :)

I cut up a few doilies to edge the whole of the facing butterfly and cut separate pieces of card to apply to the wings.

I'm still loving colouring hair with different colours than the norm and, as purple's my favourite colour, Fidget had no choice in the matter lol.  She's coloured with Copics in the following:

Skin:  E000, 00, 21, R11   Hair:  V000, 12, 15, 17
Orange tones:  YR02, 61, 68   Green tones:  YG00, 03, 23

I added a flittering of glitter to her pretty hair and some flat backed pearls and gems around pretty much the whole of the card, attached a sentiment onto my beautiful heart die and she's all ready for my daughter to give to my granddaughter on Wednesday for her 4th birthday :)

My apologies if the pic is a bit dark ..... Our natural daylight has been practically non-existent of late and even my daylight lamp couldn't cope!!

Can't wait to see what you create for our Challenge and best of luck to you all!
