Fairy wishes

At the Colour Crazy Challenge this week, we have the sponsor
this time, for our "anything goes" challenge.

This lovely image is called " starry wish".
I coloured it with my promarkers and alcohol pens 
and diecut around the image, letting the edge of the wings sit just outside the diecut.
The paper in the background is a freebie that came with a magazine some time ago. 
I inked the edges of the diecut and the punched stars with 
4 colours... to create a fantasy / rainbow feel.
A finishing touch I like and used on this card
is dry embossing round the edge of the backing paper.  
The diecut shape is lifted slightly, as I mounted it on 3d foam. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Lil patch of crafty friends - atg - 6 June
Ching chou Kuik - embossing wet / dry - 1 June
Crafty gals - for the ladies - 20 June
Seize the birthday - atg - 21 May

Never forget you are loved

Over at Patties Creations this month,
we have the ever popular challenge: anything goes. 
I used the image "daffodil circle" to create my card.

With my promarker pens, I coloured the green leaves and daffodils and added a 
stickles glitter centre to each one.
I added some extra leaves to the image, and 
die-cut some swirls and leaves.
I stamped the sentiment on and punched some butterflies from spotty card. 

I made this card to send to my (Almost 98 year old) Grandma,
who lives in a carehome.
I wanted to send her a message to tell her we are thinking about her,
in such strange times, when we can't be together, as a family. 
I also sent a little note of thanks - to the staff who are working tirelessly, 
to care for my Grandma and the other residents.

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