Crafty Catz challenge #228 DT post: Anything goes!!!

Good Morning!!!

It's Friday!!!!!!! so happy!!!  It's always really hard to be back to normality after the holidays... and this week hasn't been easy!!! I'm glad that the weekend is almost here!!! Alaia got a bike for her birthday, so, I'm really going to try to go out with her so she can enjoy it and practice!!! She also got a mini spanish guitar for her birthday.... Oh my!!!! we have a rock & roll star at home!!!!

So... let go back to cards!!!! As every Friday, we have a new challenge at ...

Anything goes!!!

So don't delay, check the great cards my fellow team mates have made for your inspiration and join us on this week's challenge!!! It's also Teresa's (GDT for April) last week with us. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent with us this month!!!

And this is my DT card!!!

This time we could choose any digital stamp from Make It Crafty to work with, and I really fell in love with this one!!! It's called Fairy Dahlia and you can find it here.

I went for a yellow colour scheme... the first time I've ever worked in yellow monochrome!!! 
The papers I've used are from: Recollections Signature Charming paper pad and Crate Paper Pretty Party paper pad.

I used Tim Holz Distress Ink pad in Old paper around the edges of the papers, image and paper embellishments.

I used my Promarkers to colour the image:

Raw Sienna, Tan, Satin, Almond, Blush,, Blossom, Cool Grey , Buttercup and Lemon Zest.

I used a few of my clear stamps around the image. 

The "Dream" sentiment and the Postmark are clear stamps from Kaisercraft. 

The leaves on the side are a border die cut from Sizzix. I've had it for so long and never used it!!! don't ask me why because I like how it looks! and I though it matched the fairy's dress really well.

As an extra layer behind the image I used a piece of cheese cloth. I'm totally addicted to cheese cloth! I really like the "messy" look it gives to the card... 

I also used:

Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Buttons from local shop.
Punched butterflies, which I embossed with a polka dots and floral embossing folders. 
Ribbon and lace from Hobbycraft.
Gems from local shop.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Digi Choosday wk 16 - Number it (I used 3 buttons, 3 butterflies) 2nd entry
 Scrap-creations - AG 2nd entry
Tuesday Throwdown #192 - Lots of Sparkle (I used gems for sparkle)
