Get well soon! Anything goes at Pennys Challenge

Wow where has the last fortnight gone, how fast time goes!

This is my DT card for our challenge over at Pennys this fortnight. I just loved this adorable image!

Its a nice easy challenge this fortnight as anything goes and we have 3 sponsors too,  so come over and join in HERE.

Our sponsors for this fortnight are


I made the card base using a large Go Kreate Scalloped circle die, added some black gingham paper cut using a Go Kreate plain circle die and then cut and scored to create a side step card.

The adorable image is called BooBoo Bee by Stitchy Bear Stamps, one of our sponsors, which has been coloured with the following Copic Pens C00, E42, Y13 and 100.

I mat and layered the image onto a black lacey circle Marianne Creatables diecut and added some Prima flowers using Card Candi in the centres. I am not sure why the flowers look a bit lime greenish but they are definitely yellow. I have also used Marianne Creatables flourish dies for the flourishes.

I used a lovely free circle sentiment digi stamp by the wonderful Annette and cut using spellbinders circle and scalloped circles dies. I have also added some irridescent glitter to his wings.
