Magical elf

Where is this year's June!!! Hope we're in for some better weather this month, we've had a few warm sunny days here and there...but not enough for me!
Today there's a great new challenge starting at Fab 'N' Funky. Our host this week is the lovely and talented Wends and she has picked the theme of 'Magical / Mystical'. Our sponsor for this challenge is the fabulous Julia Spiri who has  given the DT some beautiful images to play with, I chose to use April Elf, she's so delicate and pretty! I coloured with copics then matted the image onto aqua coloured card. The green layer is a scrap of handmade paper (beautiful texture) The DP was free with a magazine. The flowers are a HoneyDoo stamp, embossed onto vellum and coloured with inks., leaves are die cut. The bow is made from seam binding and attached with a little dragonfly brad (so many left!!!) sentiment stamp is LOTV.
Thanks for taking the time to visit today, I hope you'll pop over to Fab N Funky to check out the beautiful inspiration makes from the rest of the team...and of course we'd be delighted to see what you make for this challenge too - it is a lovely theme!
Have a good week....hoping for some sunshine!
