A Day for Daisies Challenge - Add a Little Sparkle

I am coming in on the tail end of this challenge..but I couldn't let another ADFD challenge pass me by.  It is no secret that I'm a HUGE fan of their digital images.  

So, before every last bit of my crafty supplies are packed, I thought I'd get one more project completed!  My family and I decided to purchase a new home, we are soon moving to Lexington, SC!  Each house we looked at, my number one priority was...where would my craft room go?  Well, I'm happy to report that I'm going to have an awesome space for all my right brained activities!

Now, onto the challenge!  We were to add a little sparkle to our project, which I did, but so hard to capture that on film.  Not to mention, we currently live in a space without good lighting.  So, I did my best to show the sparkle on the wings, flower and sentiment.  I don't often make square cards, but I love the look and plan to make more of them in the near future!

  1. Nice card but you haven't used the right sketch for the Creaine Challenge. Sorry.
    bye Ine

    1. I didn't realize not adding a few flowers on each side of the circle was not a strong enough interpretation of the sketch. I've removed my entry and thanks for notifying me of the rules of your challenge.

  2. Your card is so cute and I love your coloring! Congrats on the new house and new and improved craft room. Good lighting is a must! Hugs!!

  3. Fantastic colour combination and that image is beautifully coloured too. Love the sweet design.

  4. Your card is lovely and I love the sparkly wings on the fairy. Some people are just too picky about interpretation, apparently :-) I know what you mean about bad lighting, but you did a great job with the photo and I hope your new crafty space will be a better place for photos.

  5. You are so right, sparkle is so hard to capture, but I can see it. Your card is lovely, love the sweet image and strawberries take me to summer. Thanks for sharing with us at Top Tip Tuesday Summer Challenge! Brenda
