Little Winged Friends on Walk

Good morning hope you are all enjoying the weekend.  I'd like to say a big thank you for all your suggestions regarding taking pictures in the Wednesday they were very helpful!  Funnily enough today has been ok because its a nice clear day and the sun doesn't seem as bright as it sometimes is so it hasn't washed the picture out as much as usual.

Today I have made a new card with one of my new stamps which I haven't used before.  Its from Bildmalarna entitled Little Winged Friends on Walk:

Isn't she a cutie?  Slightly hippyish with the flowers in her hair lol!  I have coloured her with Copics and Stickles to her wings and the teddy has about 20 colours on because I didn't like the greens I used and tried to tone him down.  In the end I put some white pencil all over him!!  I have used Marianne dies for the flowers, leaves and button, Memory Box die for the wreath around the picture and a Martha Stewart border punch for the butterfly border at the bottom.  I used Nestabilities Labels Twelve for the image and mat.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with Labels 12 and inked with some Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  The seam binding has been coloured with some Spun Sugar DI.  The papers are from First Edition called Isabelle which is such a pretty collection of papers. I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Catz - Things with Wings
The Stamp Man - Embellish It
Charisma Cardz - Pretty in Pink
Colour Create - Pink and Green +/- Handmade Flowers
