A Sunshine Card for a Dull Day

Good morning everyone and welcome to a new week.  Yesterday was so nice we sat out in the garden all afternoon and played games with the children.  I think we were lucky in Blackpool as we only had a bit of rain in the morning then the rest of the day was lovely sunshine and deep blue skies!! Looks a bit different today though!

So if you have not had any sunshine in your part of the world here is a card to bring you a bit:

Well she's certainly bright and happy!  I have used a design from Meljen's and they currently have a great sale on - buy one get one free!!  I have coloured her with my Copics and Prismas and added Stickles for some sparkle - you can't have a fairy without sparkle can you?  She has then been cut out with a Spellbinders Nestie.  The flowers are made with a Marianne die and are nestled on top of a Magnolia Doohickey die.  The doily is a Cheery Lynn French Pastry - gorgeous die!!  The papers are Bo Bunny from their Country Garden Collection.  I have distressed with Scattered Straw DI and gems are from my stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Meljen's Designs - Spring
Pan Pastels - Add a Flower
Paper Sundaes - Let's get Cute
Pile it On - Sparkle and Shine
Stamptacular Sunday - Loaded with Layers
CMC Copic Challenge - Yellow
Stamp 'n Doodle - April Showers and/or May Flowers
Crafty Creations - Yellow and Your colour Choice
The Paper Shelter - Wings and Things
Whimsy - Punches or Die Cuts

Well that's it for me for today. Just got housework and some shopping to do and then I think it will be a case of locking myself up in my garret and doing some crafting!!  Have a great day, see you tomorrow and take care xx
