DT Card for Crafting with Dragonflies # 3: One for the girls

Hi everyone, hope you are well. This is already our third challenge, OMG...How fast did the time go?
This fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies we are asking for a card creation, with the theme:
One for the girls
Whenever I come across this theme I always think, pink, fluffy, lace all that. Well I decided to be different this time...I went for the browns and oranges for this challenge. I love this image from Delicious Doodles ( our very generous sponsor for this challenge). I love Dragonflies, but Butterflies are my second favourite, without a doubt. I always use pro markers for my colouring, the flowers and papers are from my stash, added some bling and liquid pearls and the butterfly die cut is from...( i forgot, will add it as soon as I remember, lol)...Hope you like it...
Now its your turn, blessings Hilde

Our wonderful sponsor is Make it Crafty or MIC for short....hop on over to our main blog to check out what you can win and visit my other Design Team members, and have some eye candy....they have made some very gorgeous cards....outdone themselves this doubt...

I have made a criss cross card, and even though a little more time consuming than the your normal standard card, but worth the effort. The tag was fun to make and I have taken a pic from both sides, so plenty of room for journaling. Hope you like it...

DT Project for Crafting with Dragonflies # 2 : Scrapbook page theme: Mother/Mom/MUM

Hi everyone, hope you are all well, I have been playing with digital elements and seeing that we are being sponsored by Bugaboo, and they gave us digital stamps to enjoy, I thought why not make a digital scrapbook page. I am only new at this and I hope you like it. The paper and elements are from Raspberry Road, and the bottom right hang digi stamp is from Bugaboo, on Publisher I was able to change the image colour to pink to match in with the page, I am quietly shuffed how well it turned out...but don't ask me how I did, because I fluked it somehow.....but if I can do so can you,  so why not give it a go and have a play...
We are asking to make a scrapbook page with the theme Mother, 'real' or digital, that's up to you. 

Make sure you hop on over and join us at Crafting with Dragonflies, and check out the gorgeous creations from my wonderful Design Team....just plain awesome...

I have been hording this amazing paper pack 8' x 8 " from graphics 45 for ages now, and thought it was high time I used some of it....just tooo precious, and here in Australia extremely expensive...maybe that's why, lol. 
I love Sunflowers don't you? so bright , happy and cheery...
I pared it with the beautiful dark reds, and gold patterns, and made a double sided pull out tag and a large bow...finshed it's a substantial 15 x 15 cm .

DT Card for Gingerloft: Lilac and Lace

Hi there, it's Gingerloft time again, and this fortnight we are asking to create something in lilac and add lace. 
I have printed this Gingerloft, photoframe digi off onto lilac paper and added some bling, behind the 'window' I added some real lace and a gorgeous lilac tag, at the bottom I folded up some more lace to make a sort of a flower, added a new additon to my ever growing stash and that is a large pearl brad in mauve, too gorgeous...
So  just a plain and simple card, I really had to restrain myself not to put too much on the card, I think it looks a bit a little more elegant with less....
Now it's your turn, hope on over to the main blog and check our my Team Mates creations and what you can win....
