Sweet Pea for my first DT card - One Stop Craft Challenge

Hope everyone is having a fabulous start to the weekend? :)

Now this is my first DT card for the One Stop Craft Challenge, (I'm so excited! - lol)

This week the theme is faeries or angels, (who doesnt love them!?) so I hope you feel like joining in.

I used a Sweet Pea image called 'In the Wind' and it was so lovely to work with.  I used MS punches (butterfly and border), nesties, stickles and a 12 x 12 piece of paper I never thought I would cut into! :) lol.
Flowers are Marianne dies, pearls from stash. 

I am entering this card in the following competitions:

Lets Ink It Up - Dies and Punches
In a Sweet Pea Dream - Hello Spring
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Flutterby Wednesdays - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - For a Teen
Stamp Something - Spring
Prairie Fairy Fridays - Oh so spring
Wags n Whiskers - Spring
Sew Many Challenges - Spring Fling
Totally Gorjuss - Spring has sprung
Allsorts Challenge - For a special Lady
2 Sisters Challenge - Make own embellishments
Ellephantastic Challenges - Cute with a butterfly
Craft Your Days Away- Special lady
Do You Stack Up - Shine on - I have stickles, pearls and glitter pen on this for highlights (not clear)

Thanks so much for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges,

WOW Alison, love it, image is gorgeous and coloured so beautifully and I love the flowers, have actually got that die and never used them, really must give them a try.

Went to the Hobby Craft show at the NEC yesterday, first time I have ever been, and omg there was so much to look at. Hopefully get a post up about it later with some cards using my new stash :) but having a bit of a busy weekend having to go out for a friends birthday last night and a work function this evening. Damn socialising is eating into my crafting time hehe.

Have a fab weekend and see you in blog land xx
