Delightful Challenge

Good morning everyone!  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Delightful Challenges:

Use Your Scraps

What a good excuse to use up some of those scraps that have been lingering away in your cupboards! Here's is my card:

I've used the delightful Felicia Fairy by Digital Delights- isn't she the cutest?  I've made an easel card and I don't know what make the cardstock is, it has been in my scrap drawer a long time and I really like it so I have resisted using it until now but thought that Felicia was worth it!  I have coloured her with Copics and added some Milled Lavender DI around the edges.  I have used a Spellbinders Nestie for the image and mat and also for the sentiment.  The sentiment is also by Digital Delights called Dreams Come True, I have added a slight touch of colour to it with my Copics.  I have added Stickles to the stars and Felicia's wings.  The butterfly has been cut twice with a Spellbinders Die, the top layer is vellum which is also from my scrap drawer and was just big enough for the butterfly - don't you love it when that happens!!  I have added a couple of pearls to it.  The star on the bow is from a Dienamics die and the ribbon and button are from my stash.

This week our sponsors are Cut n Paste Memories:

Who will be offering the lucky winner a $25 voucher for their store!  So get your scraps out and start crafting!  You don't have to use a Digital Delight  image to enter but we love it if you do and if you do you get two entries!!  Pop over to Delightful Challenge for some inspiration from my talented team mates. 

I will enter the following challenges:
