My first DT card!

Morning all! I am at present on holiday in beautiful Devon (my husbands favourite saying is "it's heaven in Devon" and I can't disagree!) not really looking forward to going home tomorrow, although it will be lovely to see my gorgeous girlies (grandaughters are very special people!). This is the card I made for my very first DT challenge over at southerngirls challenge. If you haven't already discovered this fun challenge blog just pop over and take a look, you'll love it! This card was made using Lila May fairy, a lovely digital image from dtsart . She is so easy to work with! I paper pieced her dress and shoes, coloured the rest of her with copics and added a tiny touch of stickles to her wings. This is the first time I've paper pieced a digital image and I'm quite pleased with the finished effect (think the lovely clean lines of the drawing helped here!).
