A new challenge at Divas by Design

Good morning blogger friends.

I hope you are having a lovely crafty week. For those of you who live in the UK, three more sleeps and I will be going to the NEC - can't wait. Are any of you going this year?
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at

 Divas by Design.

The challenge this week is

Bonfire colours - so browns, oranges, yellows, greens  - essentially autumn colours.

We are being sponsored this week by

Crafty Devils

Hark at me being all colourful with my headings!!!

I would like to say a special prayer for Claire - a blogger friend who sadly lost her dear husband to Cancer this week. My thoughts are with her and her family at this very sad time.
I have coloured in the gorgeous image from Aurora Wings Ballet Flower Ballerina - fantasy art by Mitzi Sato - Wiuff
It took me an absolute age to colour this image in - I enjoyed every minute though I know it could be improved.
I have used Inktense Pencils. The flowers are from WOC and LLC.
The papers are from my stash.

The lace and pearl trim along the bottom is from LLC.

The banner is cut out from a Whimsy Stamps set.

A collage of all the elements which made up this card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Shopping our Stash - Leaf me alone
Try it on Tuesday - Autumn colours
Dragonfly Dreams Challenge - Girly with die cut or punch
Eclectic Ellapu - Leaves and Foliage
Cheerful Stamp pad - Anything goes - Fall colours

Hope you all have a lovely week and I will see you all soon.

Big Hugs. xxx
