By The Cute and Girly DT cards

I can't believe it's June already! but it does mean that there's a new monthly challenge over at By The Cute and Girly, and the theme this month is "In The Garden".
We have some fab prizes up for grabs as always from Simon Says Stamp, Joanna Sheen and 2 new sponsors for this month, Spesch Stamps and Poppy's Cabin.
The design team were very kindly allowed to choose a digi stamp from the Spesch Stamps store to use for the challenge and Helena the lovely owner of Poppy's Cabin sent the design team some of her lovely paper doilies to work with. Thank you both so much ladies! :)

I made 3 cards this month, but I will show 2 today that I used bits from our sponsors on, and the last one I will show another day.

 I followed the sketch over at Sketch and Stash for this one and used a Molly Blooms image that I have had for ages and coloured as usual with Promarkers.
I used a paper doily from Poppy's Cabin, some papermania roses, ribbon and lace from my stash and I have no idea who makes the paper I have used (sorry).

 I really enjoyed colouring this image, she is so easy to colour :)

I don't know who makes the papers I used on this one either because I can't find the cover of the pack, but they are from a pack that was only a couple of quid and they have some really pretty fairy images on a lot of them, although I used the ones without the fairies this time.
The image is called Loves Me Not, and is a digi from Spesch Stamps and again coloured with Promarkers.
Another doily from Poppy's Cabin, the large purple rose is from Hobbycraft and the tiny ones I got from Joanna Sheen's website about a year ago. The flourish is cut with a Marianne die and the spray is from a local flower warehouse.
Soem ribbon from Hobbycraft, pearls from my stash and a pretty butterfly which was actualy off a cheap necklace (which had about 12 charms on it so I have kept them for later lol) that I bought a few weeks ago just for the charms lol.

I hope you will come and join in with this months challenge for a chance to win some fab prizes, and we are also looking for a few guest designers for our August challenge if anyone is interested.

Thanks for stopping by
