Guest Designer for A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 137 "Photo Inspiration"

Last week I won some blogcandy on the Wags and Whiskars Bloghop, and I was lucky to win two fabulous stamps from Nikki of Bunny-Zoes Blogspot and I was asked if I would be a guest designer for a Challenge on "A Spoon Full of Sugar" Challenge Blogspot and I didnt have to think long and I said Id be delighted to take part, and then Nikki sent me a photo and as you will see the colour choices were really bright and cheerful,
and as I chose the stamp below for my prize I thought it was ideal to use it for this colour choice I hope you think so.
This image is called Nichola and as fairies are often bright and colourful it was ideal for the challenge, and as you can see Ive coloured it with my copic pens, then cut her out with my Nestabilitie Die Label No.1 and then drew around the edge of the die to create the mount, the sentiment is one of the Whimsey Ticket stamps and Ive done the same thing with this.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of orange card and one of three papers from the Kay Miller Downloads "Live for Joy" digi papers, the first one being a orange based spot and circle papers, on top of this is a pink card with a flower pattern and the third mount is another pink card with an all over pink pattern on. Around the middle Ive wrapped two seam binding ribbon in pink and orange and created a bow with them and attached it to the side with silicone glue.
The mounted image was positioned towards the right hand side, and the sentiment ticket was placed below at an angle. Ive created three flowers with some of the left over papers, and have pearl brads through the middle and then attached to the base card with some silicone glue and punched out fern leaves. Ive also popped a few yellow pearls in a couple of the corners.
Do now please pop over to "A Spoon Full of Sugar" Challenge blogspot and see for yourself the rest of the teams gorgeous and stunning creations.
