It is with a little sadness that I post this DT card for Pattie's Creations ... it is the last one of my term at Pattie's Creations!

I have had wonderful time whilst on Pattie's DT, had the pleasure of getting to meet some wonderfully talented crafters, and w3ill forever be grateful to Pattie for giving me a chance, a complete newbie, serving on her first DT. Thanks Pattie - and of course Sandi - I hope I didn't let the side down.

Enogh snivelling from me ... and now onto my creation for the GIRLY! challenge:

I used a combination of coloured pencils and oms, copics, pastel gel pens, and glitter gel pens to colour the image. I used a fancy corner punch for the corners and a selection of DP offcuts. The stickers are puffy, almost transparent, from a set that I bought years ago! The flower (isn't it gorgeous?!) has always seemed to big for my other cards, but here it just seems perfect. I am so glad that I finally found a use for it!

Now that you have seen my card, are you going to enter the challenge too?

JUST REMEMBER, if you use an image from Pattie's Creations, you will get an extra entry to win! Stop over at her Etsy Store and browse around. There are FREEBIES too.
The challenge started on Friday, 9 September and ends Thursday, September 8th at 5PM CST (Central Standard Time)

Pattie has some fabulous images in her store, so it should be too difficult to find one just perfect for your GIRLY!creation!
