What an heavenly image xx

Well as you can see I'm back with another fabulous image from Scrap Book Stamp Society and this one is called Rite-of-Spring and isn't she a beauty I can't tell you how relaxing it was to colour she is just a gem!
I have coloured my image as always with pro markers and added lots of stickles and gems to really make it glisten.
A few weeks ago I went to a demo day with Indigo Blu stamps at the Craft Den and purchased some flitter glue and mega flakes and this is the effect I have around the edge of the image just scrummy!
The gorgeous orange ribbon and flowers are from my stash and the leaf is a EK Success punch.
Sentiment is from Magnolia. 
A side view where you can see the fab paper from Crate Paper - Random Collection "Vintage" added to plain card which is just perfect for the image me thinks!!!!

The Challenges I am entering are:

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge  -  In the Garden
Dilly Beans  -  Flowers
Digi Design Challenge  -  Bling
Sweet Stampin  -  Fairies/Angels
Saturday Challenge  -  In the Garden
Passion for Pro Markers  -  Inspiration Photo  -  Pinks, Greens, Blue & Yellow
Papertake Weekly  -  In the garden
Zoe Bunny  -  Anything Goes

Well that's it from me will be around later doing some commenting and trying to catch up with all your beautiful creations!!

Set myself two tasks today which I'm happy because I managed to do them both which is very positive for me at the moment!  I've now been off work for seven months which is having quite a strain on our finances but I'm now at the stage where I'm just taking one day at a time and hoping for a miracle!!  Tomorrow I'm hoping to cut the lawn so fingers crossed that the weather stays nice.

Hope you all have a great week.

Love and hugs Chanelle xx

It saddened me when the pictures ended...those are wonderfully captured images of all your hard work. Man O' Man does she look mysterious, mythical and amazing. You nailed the coloring and the entire whimsical feel is excellent. That cool stuff, can't remember the name now, around the edges.....that is some freaky neat stuff.
Good luck with the weather and the lawn! :)
