SWEET STAMPIN with Flutter by Wednesday and Truly Scrumptious

Goodness what a manic three days I've just had - 8 hours of sleep and 29.5 hours of work in the last 60 hours having not had any for months.  Still - the pay will go towards paying off my recent mega craft purchases!AND it's Saturday which means it's SWEET STAMPIN time where I'm oh so proud to be a guest designer this month!
This week our theme is "something with wings".  Once again we are sponsored by the fabby Prairie Fairy - our June sponsor who are offering one lucky winner 5 digis!  And also by PollyCraft who are also giving a way 5 digis!  Pollycraft very kindly supplied us with an image too; "Clover I - believe", a Lilybean fairy.  Isn't she cute!!!
I am entering my card into Truly Scrumptious who have a truly scrumptious "sketch" for us to use and also Flutter by Wednesday's "pink orange and green" themed challenge.  An unusual colour combination which worked really well with my K&Co Berry Sweet papers and some lovely DCWV mounts.  Clover is coloured with Copics today.  I added some liquid pearls to her toadstools (I know they are red and not pink, orange or green but toadstools are red in my book - these ones are clearly Fly agaric toadstools.  I don't know how I know that - I just do).   I need some practice with the pearls - it was quite hard.  I also used some new Bakers Twine.  I say it's new because I haven't touched any of it but I've actually had it since my birthday in January. I mounted my image and the wonderful LOTV sentiment with my favourite frilly nestie.
I hope you will join in the fun with us this week and pop over to Sweet Stampin to see what my fabby teamies have been up to! 
See you tomorrow.
