CD Sunday - Inspired by Nature

This week at CD Sunday it was my turn to chose the theme so I picked 'Inspired by Nature'. I hope that gives you lots of ideas for inspiration. My fellow teamies and our lovely Guest DT member Pauline from Crafting with Cotnob  have come up with some lovely things for you to look at.

For my card I used an 8 x 8 base and matted and layered some backing paper from Flower Fairies Friends Fairies of the Garden CD by Crafters Companion. I used the Canterbury Bell rubber stamp and coloured her in using my Spectrum Noir pens in the following colours:

Leaves:  DG1, DG2
Skin: FS1, FS2, FS5
Stamen in flower: GB1
Petals: HB1, HB2, LV1, LV2
Clothes and Wings: PP1, PP2, PL1

Glitter (of course)

I used Distress Inks around the edge of the image. I then used my Marianne dies to cut out the words and lilac flowers. The white flower is a Spellbinder die.

I do hope you will join our challenge this week. The weather outside is awful so we might as well stay home and craft :-). 

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge:
