GDT for DYSU Challenge

Another scheduled post... everything crossed it'll work!

I was asked to be Guest Designer for DYSU Challenge this week - it's one that I try to play along with whenever I can, so I was very pleased to be asked :o)  Their theme is 'for a friend' and I've used a sweet image from one of the sponsors Little Darlings for my card...




I've coloured the image with promarkers and flexmarkers, and used some gorgeous new First Edition papers I bought from My Crafty Heart recently, with dark brown cardstock from Papermill Direct.  The banner die is Memory Box (I think), and the sentiment is LOTV.  The butterfly was cut with a Kars punch, and the pearls are from my stash.  Oh, and I added my little Viva pearl dots around the image too of course!

Hopefully we're having fabulous weather in Norfolk - well, we can hope, can't we?  Back in a couple of days, hope you're all having a lovely week :o)
