A new Challenge at Besties.

Good morning to you.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready to face a new week. Thank you for your comments regarding my question as to die cutting machines. I have not decided on one yet though I may write to Spellbinders to see if there is any way my GC can be repaired.
Today sees the start of an new challenge over at the Besties Challenge Blog. The theme for this weeks challenge is Wings. Please remember that you also have the option to enter the challenge without following the theme (we still ask you to use a Besties Image). This only means that you won't be able to win the Grand Prize of 5 digis.
We will also pick a runner up and the DT Favourite! The DT favourite will also have the  chance of being our Guest Designer.
You can purchase Besties at Sherry's Etsy store here or at the Scrapbook Stamp Society here
I have used image 693 and you can find her here. The list of other product used can be found at the bottom of  the post.
Don't quite know what happened to the colour. It is not so green as it looks here.
The image has been coloured with Distress Markers. I would love to try the Distress Inks. Are they better to colour with?
I have used two layers on my banner die to give it more dimension.
The ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Eureka stamps = Wings and Things.
Digi Haven - Use two colours
LEJ Designs - Things with wings
Card Mania - Cute as a button
My Craft Creations - Anything Goes 
Thank you all for your visits to my blog and for all your gratefully received comments. Blogland is such a fun place to be (apart from the odd card theif) and I never would have dreamed of having so many special friends in my life. It would be lovely to be able to meet you all in the flesh - a bloggers get together - though that would take major organisation especially since many are oversees.  
I will catch up with you all when I have had my tea and I will return again on Wednesday.

ps I had a GC - it broke and I replaced it with an e-Bosser - so far so good. But I also have my trusty Big shot - just wish it would [take the larger dies lol!!!

Hi Sharon Wow! that's an amazing card. I love the colour combo & embellishments, your colouring is just fab.
I am also in need of a new machine & I don't know what to get either. Hope all is well now with Kayleigh & baby Evie.
Happy Crafting.

Those gorgeous colours are very reminiscent of spring going into summer (which is what this side of the world is doing). Love the sparkly wings on your fairy. Helen

What a beautifully co-ordinated card Sharon and I love all the detailed embellishments you've added. Just a magical card. Fingers crossed that your Evie stays put for a little while yet to give her time to grow even stronger. Many thanks for your lovely comments.
