Sentimental Sundays DT post challenge #203 - Colour Inspiration

Hello!!! Happy Sunday and Happy Easter!!!
What a lovely day we are having here!!!! the sun is shining, husband is cutting the grass in the garden (I'm still a bit poorly... but trying to enjoy the sun a  bit!!!) and as it is Alaia's birthday, she still has to cut her cake... Not having a party, as I haven't got the energy and feeling really unwell... But Alaia is still so happy! She's such a happy and content child!!! I can't believe my little princess is 5 today....
I'll show you the card I've made for her in the next few of my favourites so far!!!

But let's go back to today's card... We have a new challenge at 

and the challenge this week is....

Colour Inspiration!!!
(plus a sentiment) don't forget!

beautiful colours!!! 

Our sponsor this week is Aurora Wings

you should really take a look at their Etsy shop... it's full of fantasy and magical beauties!!! 

They very kindly donated an image for me to work with, I chose Water Lily Fairy - Lotus.

and I can tell you... I used ALL  the colours in my card!!! it's one of the busiest and most colourful cards I've ever made!!! I  had a lot of fun making it... 

The Papers I've used are all from the Recollections Signature Fabulous Girl paper pad... I'm loving this paper pads I get from TK Maxx here in the UK... they all come from America... This one for example is from the famous Michaels!!! I've never been in America... but if I ever go... Michaels will be one of my stops!!! lol.

I used my Tim Holtz Distress Tool to distress the borders of all the papers. 
I also hand-stitched the borders of the bottom layers with white thread.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I bought some Flexmarkers the other day and I can tell you I'm hooked!!! I love the brush style tip!!! 

The colours I used are:

Flexmarkers: Watermelon, Tea Rose, Wild Orchid, Pink Pearl, Celestial Blue and Cadet Blue.

Promarkers:  Duck Egg, Turquoise, Buttercup, Mustard, Blush and Almond.

To finish off the card I used:

A blue doily from local shop
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Butterfly punch
my new Tattered Lace Leaf Branches die
Lace and ribbon and gems from local shops

as you may know, I'm a challenge junkie... I love making cards that fit as many challenges as they can!!! For me it's part of the fun of making cards!!! today is one of the busy challenge days...

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges!!!!

As you like it - favourite style of stitching (faux or real) and why: my favourite style of stitching is hand-stitch... I don't use a machine. and I love the texture that real stitching gives to the cards. I used it a lot on my cards.
Crafty Boots - Sparkle (I used gems)

I really hope you like my card! if you do, don't forget to leave me some love in the comments...

and don't forget to follow!! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your support.... 

Until next time!!!
