Digital Tuesday #117 - Flower Power

Hi all today we have a new challenge for you at 
and it was my turn to choose the theme and I decided to go for
our sponsor this week is
Grab the blinkie
I have always been so impressed and inspired by the wonderful flower creations that I see when I am visiting you all which is one of the reasons I chose this theme.
Here is my DT card.
I have used a Karen's Doodles image that I bought a long time ago called Fairy Fun, I have coloured her with promarkers. The papers are Bearlymine from the Spring Delight range which can be found HERE
For a change I made an easel card and chose to use the colour combo of blue and yellow.
I drew the frame around the image after I saw one of the Stamp Addict girls doing it in a demo on Create & Craft I used one of the black fine liner pens, it really does look effective and I like it.
I used a stamped sentiment, ribbon, an EK Success border punch, punched swirls, butterflies and finally I made my own flowers from different sized Nestie dies. I think these ones here look like Marigolds.
This next picture shows the image a little closer, i have used Glossy Accents on her dress and the flowers in her hair. 
These next pictures show the flowers much closer. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

I do hope that you will come join us this week at 
and show us some of your Flower Power
Hugs to all see you later.
