Rosy cheek Emma

Good afternoon to all my friends and followers.
Firstly I would like to say a big 'hello' and 'welcome' to my new followers -it's so nice to have you with me and I hope you enjoy my blog.
Can you believe it's Friday again?? I've had a really busy week as the school I work at had it's Open Evening yesterday and you wouldn't believe the work that makes-it's been non-stop crazy for about a fortnight now. Still, the up-side was that we got to have a short day today which was lovely and so nice to be home just a little bit earlier on a Friday!
This week I've been colouring in a new image I bought from the Art by Miran store-I really love these images and really enjoyed colouring her. I had a design in my head for the card but then when I came to make it somehow it turned into this which was nothing at all how I'd planned!!
I used both my new Papermania pads together, the Wild Rose and the Eau de Nil as I love these colours together and it's turning into a bit of a favourite of mine too. I used Kraft card to back everything which gave it a bit of depth.
I cut the image on an oval using my fancy scissors and used more fancy scissors to cut the edges on the corners. I added some coloured flowers and pearls and die cut the butterfly adding some liquid pearls to the wings. I punched a little envelope to put the sentiment in so it tied in with the image and here she is:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Art by Miran challenge # 16- anything goes
Milkcoffee Designs challenge - lots of layers
Whoopsi Daisy challenge - things with wings
Passion for Promarkers challenge # 268- favourite colour
Sister Act challenge # 78 - anything goes

Well I hope you all have a fab weekend wherever you are, thank you so much for stopping by today and for any comments you may wish to leave.
Until next time.
