A little Sunshine in our Lives

Well it's day 2 of sunshine and blue skies where I live...really nice - especially as it is the weekend too!

So since I was feeling particularly 'sunny' today, I thought I would showcase a card on a sunny yellow theme, made with a beautiful Angelica's fairy.

I know I say this often, but once again I have to marvel at the lovely expression achieved on her little face with a few well placed lines...just perfect.
I have kept this card really simple, focussing on the image, which I coloured in with my Spectrum Noirs, and pointing on to some coordinating card stock, finished of with some lovely polkadot ribbon and one of my 'cheats' bows.

Finally - I tried something new, having seen Leanne do it on the TV, and painted over the wings with pearlescent H20 to give a bit of a glimmer. It certainly does the trick, but I think I may need to make the paint a little bit thinner the next time...trial and error - I will get there in the end!

So, on to the challenges to go with this post, which are:

Crafters Companion - Flowers
Cutie Pie - Clean and Simple
Paper Shelter - Make it Bloom
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin - Buttons, Bows and Polkadots
Allsorts - Flowers
Make it Monday
Spectrum Noir - Spring

Thanks for stopping by today, and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
