All of a Flutter.....and a little Fran-táge

Good morning everyone,

Friday at last! I do hope you've something special planned for the weekend!

I've got some wonderful crafty news to share with you today...
...a few weeks ago I was selected to be a part of the fabulous
Totally Papercrafts Challenge
... and after I picked myself off the floor, I of course said YES.
I'm so honoured and excited to be a part of this great challenge.

Our lovely host this week is the fabulous Debs and she has chosen the theme
 "All of a Flutter".  Here is the card I made.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Ladybug Crafts Ink
 and they are offering a fabulous £10 Prize gift certificate to the winner.

Now when I think of flutter....I think of Fairies and this image is one of my favourites. She is called "Wings" and is an ADFD digi.   This is my first time using Fran-táge.  I know...I'm a late bloomer but I really do try not to buy EVERYTHING!   I found it easy to use and I really like the might just see more of it in the days to come.

 I've used a Cheery Lynn Doily called Large Sunflower.  The shape is a Go Kreate Square Frame #260030 Frilly #10.  Image cut out using SB Romantic Rectangles. Banner is a Hanglar Stamp, with flowers and lace from WOC.   I used Hero Arts Prisma Glitter, Art Glitter #162 Just Peachy and Jewel Glitter Ritz, Sand on the wings. DP is SU's new Coordination's paper in Crisp Cantaloupe and image is coloured with Copics.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
  1. Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge - Birthdays
  2. Papertake Weekly Challenge -  new item (fran-táge)
  3. Partytime Tuesday Challenge #128 - Wing it
  4. Make it Monday#148 
  5. Emerald Faeries Challenge #45 - Happy Birthday 
  6. Crafts and Me Challenge #138 - Anything Goes
  7. ADFD Challenge #74 - Use a Die Cut

Now if you've hung around to the end of this very long post...I thank you so much. Hope you get a chance to stop by the challenge and see what fabulous creations my team mates have come up with.
                             Pat K x...NEW DT MEMBER...YEAH!

This is beyond gorgeous! I love the image, another to add to my collection in the hope that one day I get time to use it, sigh. You've used my all time favourite colour here, love the dies and punches you've used too. I'm an even later bloomer than you - haven't even got any Frantage yet, lol. Donna xx
