OSAAT #201 - Girly

Come and join us at One Stitch at a Time for the challenge set this week which has a Girly theme. I chose the image Dragonfly/Waterlily by Craftygirl over at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet. 

My card blank is a large scalloped square by Craft UK. The pink and turquoise card is by Papermill and I embossed the pink card with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder of butterflies. I rounded the corners of the turquoise card with a Carl corner punch and cut the pink with a Spellbinders grand scalloped nestie. The image was coloured mainly with my Promarkers though I did use a Sakura glitter pen on the dragonfly to give it a sheen. I then cut it out with a Spellbinders grand oval nestie. I gave a shadow to the image and round the edge of the oval with an ivory coloured Promarker. The turquoise ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the little wooden dragonfly, once again coloured with the Sakura pen, is from Create and Craft.

The sponsor this week is Stitchy with 7 digis but do check out the OSAAT blog to get full details of the prizes on offer.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
