Guest Design Team Member at Emerald Faeries Challenge Blog

Happy Belated Easter everyone.I hope you all had a wonerful weekend with family or friends and didn't over indulge on chocolate too much!! We spent Easter down at my mum's with my family and had our annual Easter egg Hunt!! Mum hides over 1000 eggs and we all race around the house pulling furniture etc apart looking for all the eggs!! The kids have an absolute ball as do us big kids! :)
So a couple of weeks ago I applied for a DT position at The Emerald Faeries Garden and I was asked to be a Guest designer for the next couple of months. As it's school holidays here at the moment and I was away when invited to be a Guest DT I have missed a couple of challenges so this is my first!!!!
There is now a Sketch challenge Blog and this is the second sketch!!

And here is my card:
I used Willy and Mia for my card and coloured them in with Tria markers!! I 3D'd their wings, hats and Mia's Skirt just to give the card a bit of depth but you can't really see it from this photo!! (I might have to go out in the freezing cold and take another photo!!). I used Crate Paper SB paper and used the colours from that to colour the image. I put the card together following the sketch then added some embellishments to finish off the card!!
Want to join in this Sketch challenge? Well head on over to the The Sketch challenge Blog to see what the rest of the DT have created and see what you could win if you join in!!
Thanks to all the girls over at EFG for having me!!!
