Use your dies and punches -Southern Girls #145

Good morning my lovely friends, followers and 'droppers in', hope your day has started well. I'm here with my DT card for our new challenge at Southern Girls, a lovely theme this fortnight and two fabulous sponsors! The theme is simple...use your dies and punches and the sponsors are Fairy Tangle Art and All Dressed Up, such gorgeous images from both of them. I was delighted to choose this beautiful Fairy Tangle image,Midsummer Dragonflies .....and really enjoyed colouring her with my copics. I used a Martha Stewart border punch, the  leaves and blue flowers are made from die cuts and the pink ones from punches. I used a magazine freebie stamp and die cut to create the dragonfly, his wings are made from acetate.
Please click here to be transported to the challenge blog, you'll be blown away by the fabulous creations of my teamies! Of course we'd love to have you play along so dig out those lovely  punches and  gorgeous dies and get creating!
Enjoy the rest of the week.
