Creatalicious Challenge #3

I've made a card for the latest challenge from Bec at Creatalicious Challenges.  The challenge is to create a card using scraps of Designer Paper, new cardstock and a handmade flower!  So here's my creation:


I've used Gretal, one of the sweet Swiss Pixies stamps.
I've teamed this up with coloured cardstock - Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa and Rose Red; then added some DP from Rasberry Tart which was in my left-over basket. 
For the main image, I've stamped onto white cardstock in Stazon black, then coloured with ink pads and aqua painters.  I've added dimensional magic to the wings!
The handmade flower embellisment has been made with fabric, felt and some of the wide double-stitched SU ribbon in Rose Red.  I've added a button and twine to the centre.
The sentiment is from Best Yet (hostess set) and I've added some So Saffron ribbon to complete the card.

I love to incorporate fabric into my creations, so this was a fun challenge to do.  Thanks Bec!!


Product used:
Stamps: Swiss Pixies, Best Yet (hostess set)
Cardstock: Choc Chip, Close to Cocoa, Rose Red, DP Rasberry Tart, White
Ink: Close to Cocoa
Others: Ribbon (SU), fabric, SU punches, rhinestone, button, twine, scallop edge punch
