Creative Card Crew #52 - Thankyou

Hello again, and welcome to another Creative Card Crew challenge. Thanks to everyone who joined in my pink & green challenge over the past 2 weeks - sorry I wasn't able to get round everyone's entries as life's been a bit hectic ... but I'm sure they were all fabulous as usual! And don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you are the lucky winner of the challenge prize.

So onto this fortnight's fabulous challenge which has been set by Victoria, and is


And thankyou to Victoria herself, who is sponsoring this week's yummy prize with Stampin' Up products.

The rest of the DT have created some fabulous samples so I hope you will check them out ... here's mine.

Main image: WOJ "Melinda woth Bouquet" coloured with Promarkers, edges sponged with Colorbox Queue ink, and wings decorated with diamond Stickles;
Sentiment: WOJ;
Papers: Papermania "Rose Garden";
Supplies: roses and rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts decorated with diamond Stickles; lace was an RAK from
Ruby; ribbon and pearls from my stash;
Tools: "Labels One" nestabilities.

Here's a closeup of my colouring and Melinda's sparkly wings.

... and here are my new yummy Wild Orchid Crafts large curly wild roses and dinky rosebuds ... the middle size rose was a birthday gift from Sue.

I used the brilliant sketch from this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge #80 ....

... and would also like to enter this card for a few other challenges:

Die Cut Dreams #52 - Angels
Charisma #22 - Flowers (2nd entry)

Pollycraft #47 - Ribbon & bling
Cupcake #94 - Dazzle Us
Colour Create #46 - Baby Pink & Pastel Blue
Corrosive #67 - Die Cuts
By the Cute & Girly June Challenge - something old, new, borrowed, blue

.... well that would be

old - my WOJ stamp
new - yummy Wild Orchid Crafts roses and rosebuds
borrowed - layout from this week's WOJ Challenge sketch, and the idea of cutting the wings outside the nestie shape (seen on several crafty blogs)
blue - colours of Melinda's headband and jeans.

Look forward to seeing all your creations.
