Michelle Perkett Challenge DT card + other challenges

I am so excited to share you my excited news that I was invited to join Michelle Perkett's DT team and today I am posting my very first DT card for Michelle's challenge blog.

The challenge is to find a print from Michelle's Etsy Store that inspires you (whether it is with color or sentiment or design), then create a project around that inspiration piece.

I used the sketch from Quixotic Challenge #9 for the platform of my card.

Here is the print I got my colors inspirations from one of Michelle's Daydream prints for the card this time.

Using the color scheme from the print above, here is my finished card. The image of this card is called "Butterfly Fairy". I tried to stay the purple & green color for the image and added yellow for the contrast.

Closer view of this Butterfly Fairy. Colored with Copic markers and added some stickle on her wings. I think fairy should be a bit sparkle.

I punched out a strip using my MS punch and then folded some pleats.

Please come play along with us and I am sure you will enjoy it! Hope to see you there :o)
