Bells'n Whistles "Color" & Wild Orchid Crafts "Wings" Challenges

The challenge at Bells'n Whistles is a color challenge of Blue, Green, and White. You must use an Elizabeth Bell image to participate in the challenges. The challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts is "Wings" to be interpreted any way you choose.  Just received this adorable image from B'nW and thought it fit perfectly for both challenges.  There are some fantastic new Elizabeth Bell images at B'nW so if you missed the blog hop, jump on over and take a look.  If I'm going to use flowers on one of my projects they are always from Wild Orchid Crafts unless I make my own, and boy, I'm not very good at doing 

The DP is from Memory Box Fond package, the mat paper is a blue Bazzill, sorry I forgot to write down the name of it and Old Olive from SU.  All of the flowers and lace are from WOC with Stickles added for that bling I love so much.  The scroll (fluorish) was cut on my Cricut and those fab Stickles were added.  I used a Spellbinders die for the image background after cutting out the image and coloring with Copics.  I also cut the lily pad out and sprayed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist to give it some shine and adhered the cut out image to the lily pad and then the die.  This new image is named Lilypad Dreams and can be purchased here.  Isn't she just adorable!!!  The gems are from my stash and the stickles used were Star Dust.

Here is a close up of Lilypad Dreams

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you like what you see and will leave me a comment so I can hop on over to your blog to see what's new and your lovely creations.
"Hugs" Carol (Granny)
