Challenging Challenge...

Hokey ive cranked up the seems to be playing on to my second card this evening...over at Crafty Card Makers they are challenging you to do something challenging that maybe you've been putting off for a while..well i knew what i wanted to do..put it off a few days then decided today was the day!! i was lucky enough that one of my friends stamped a few of these stunning sweet pea images for for the past month or so ive been getting the out..looking at them..then ruuning away very fast...i mean where do you start..its not my normal thing and ive seen so many coloured so beautifully throughout blogland that i didnt think i could do it justice...ive still played it safe with my colouring..maybe my next challenge to myself will be to go BOLD!!...but i am quite pleased with the result...oh and the second thing is that i got some silver stickles about 6 months ago..tried them once ...wasnt happy with what id done so "fell out" with them and continue to glare at them on a daily after much deliberation...i have gone round all my distressed edges with them and added them to the stars on the image along with my fave glossy accent...anyway...enough of war and also entering my card into the following challenges..
Sir Stampalot - Fantasy (amazing prize up for grabs!!)
Stamping for the Weekend - Ribbon and Bows
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch and "fly away" -im thinking the hair
Crafts and Me - Fairies or wings (is she a fairie?? - not too sure but she does have a butterfly in her hair...too much of a stretch??)

for some reason the added moon charm has moved on the main piccy but you can see it better on this one :-)

Papers - PM Capsule Aqua & Heather
coloured with promarkers
silver stickles
charm and ribbon from stash
