Sketch Saturday #229

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
Sponsored by the wonderful

I promise I used the three separate vertical panels required of the sketch this week (although I recognise that my proportions are all wrong!).  I even used two different Prima paper pads but they coordinate with each other so well it is hard to see that the two outside panels come from Natures Garden and the central panel is from Fairy Belle.
I didn't like the line where the panels met so I covered one with a thin shiny ribbon and the other with a much larger organza ribbon and now of course it's hard to see them at all and it looks like I have 4 panels instead of three!   I used this gorgeous Elisabeth Bell "Dragon Flight", coloured with Copics, which you can find here.  I added some stamped dragon flies to the left hand panel which are now entirely obscured by my ribbon.  The two embellishment dragonflies are cut with a punch and I used three different colours of clear sparkly Stickles on all of the different wings.    A little lace has been added to represent the scallops beneath my old Lakeland pierced paper Happy Birthday sentiment ribbon and there are lots of gems to make this card extra girlie.
This slightly different perspective shows up two of the colours of Stickles on the wings of the dragonfly under the fairy.
My teamies over at Sketch Saturday have produced some fabulous creations for you to see.  Do stop by their blogs and share some love and then come along and play with us.
I am entering my card into the following challenges
Elphine House 3,2,1 - I used three dragon flies, two fabric ribbons and one fairy
Stampalot "punch away"
Loves Rubber Stamps #21 "Bling Baby Yeah!
Papertake Weekly "All Creatures Great and Small"
Creative Inspirations #184 "Anything Goes"
Crafts and Me #105 "Anything Goes"

And here are some other ingredients I used today just to enable me to function.  Having rallied briefly a week ago, I am now feeling terrible again; full of cold, cough, headaches and other aches and pains. Its been two weeks now and I'm feeling horrible but at least the waterworks infection cleared up!
