Good morning all, my son is off on a trip to the beach today with the school, so you can guess what the weather is going to do!!  Take your rain coats and umberellas!  hee hee!!!

Todays card is using an image from one of my favourite digi designers of the moment, Bonna Kelley from Kelley kids at the Stitchy bear store.

I have again used freebie backing papers from magazines from my drawer for this card and used a fiskars boarder punch down the edges of the 2 triangle sections at the bottom of the card.
The stars are all sizzix diecuts, and I have embossed them with a sizzix embossing folder, then inked them in yellow, with purple around the edge.

this image is called 'Starlite fairy' and you can find her here.   I have coloured her with pro markers and added some glitter to the wings and hair.

The swirls are a marianne creatables die and I have added mini gems and the sentiment is a stamp( don'tknowwhere from tho' sorry!)

I will be entering this card into the following challenges My signature style( pro markers and cutting out the image to mount with foam pads!) Whats your angle(triangles and stars)

Thank you in advance for any lovely comments you may wish to leave. 

 Come back soon.
