Fashionista approached me to join their DT - Here is my first DT project for them

Following on from my guest slot over at Fashionista the other week they approached me to ask if I would be willing to join their fantastic DT,  Wow it was a real surprise, I was delighted, felt honoured and accepted straight away!
Thank you so much for giving me the chance to work with such talented ladies 

 Our challenge this month is Butterfly or winged things - we are sponsored by
The Paper Shelter

Come on over To Fashionista Challenge Blog to join in the fun
We are also announcing the top 5 cards from the last challenge so get voting for your favourite too!

So here is my first DT creation for Fashionista

I started by making a petal shaped easel card using Go Kreate dies and patterned papers.

I have used a clear stamp by Fizzy Moon called Bloom and butterflies which I have coloured with the following Copics C3, E0000, E000, E42, G40, Y00, V01, RV00 and RV23.

I have also used the new memory box die called Honeyblossom Sprig, a
Cheery Lynn butterfly die and Spellbinders labels 6 die.

So what are you waiting for, hop on over to our challenge blog
and show us how talented you all are, we can't wait to see your entries.
