Saturated Canary cutie for some challenges

I have loads of time on my hands now that all my kids are at school and I don't help out at their new school (I was at their old school helping every day!), so I have managed to get all my cards made for dt work and some challenge cards too :)

I bought one of the gorgeous Saturated Candy images the other day and couldn't wait to make a card with it. I coloured her up in pink too, so will have to get a card made with that one as well, but for now, here's the blue version I did.

This little lady is called Nevaeh and I coloured her as usual with Promarkers and used some Diamond Stickles too.
The papers are Heidi Grace, doily from Poppy's Cabin, lush white satin ribbon is from a little craft shop in Stonehaven, buttons from my stash and the pretty crotchet flowers and embroidered butterfly are from Little Snippets.

 You can't really see the stickles on her dress, but you might be able to see it better if you click on the pic.

I'm loving these flowers are butterflies, they are sooo pretty :)

I followed the sketch at Crafty Catz challenge blog, and I am also entering this card into the challenge at Cute Card Thursday, where anything goes this week and Delighful Challenges where they want to see Girly Girls. (I know my card is blue and not the normal girly pink, but I still think it's very girly.

Thanks for stopping by
