My first card for the Emerald Faeries Garden Challenge

Hey my lovelies!

Here`s my post #2 for the day. I`m really on a roll here, lol. Today is actually my first official card as a part of the DT at the Emerald Faeries Garden. And i just love how it turned out. I actually coloured up 3 different images before i was satisfied. Not that i didn`t like how the colouring turned out, but i didn`t think they was exactly what i was looking for. This image is called Kayla and Twinkie and you can find it right here in the Emerald Faeries Garden store.
It is Team B`s turn to host the challenge this upcoming fortnight. And the theme is: all things nice (Girly). You won`t believe all the beautiful creations by the dt, so you just HAVE to hop on over to the challenge blog to take a peek. Dont`t forget to enter while your visiting, lol.

I`m so happy!!! I have finally received my new Big shot, yeay!!! I was a bit scared to use it course i thought i was breaking the plates, lol. But it was just the paper that made the cracking noice, lol. I am so excited about it. Just look at the lovely dies. Finally i can have some swirls on my creations too, lol.

I used a lot of colours on this image so the list is going to be long.

Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan

Walnut, Terracotta, Spice, Honeycomb

Forrest green, Bright green, Lime, Lime Zest

Satin, Putty, Tan

Maroon, Mulberry, Cerise

Maroon, Mulberry, Blossom

Pumpkin, Cocoa

Baby`s Blanket:
Coral, Pastel pink

Baby`s headpiece:
Baby pink, Coctail pink,

Gold Yellow, Sunflower, Lipstick red, Forrest green, Bright green, Lime

The sentiment is one of the new ones designed by Donna. One of our talented DT ladies. The butterfly i made myself. I saw a tutorial on this at the Wild Orchid Crafts and i just had to try it. I really love how it turned out. The papers i have used are from Bearly Mine Designs, except the dividing paper in the middle.
