Poppy Sprite

 Good morning, this week's challenge at Crafty Catz starts today, the optional theme is
 Fantasy / Make it Magical.,
 our sponsor for this challenge is 


The team were given some lovely images to play with and my card features the cute Poppy Sprite.
She's coloured with Copic markers, the background clouds are sponged with Distress Ink. The red panel behind her is embossed with a butterfly EF that I've had for years and have no idea of the brand. I added a die cut butterfly (MB) and some poppies (Orchid Crafts- whatever they're called now).

Update on Marvin...he's settled in so well already, he's so quick to learn we can't quite believe how young he is!
Our house feels like a home again :))

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.
