fragile delight

My card today is for FIVE challenges.

I used this week's gorgeous sketch at Card Patterns.

At No Time To Stamp the challenge is 'sparkle' - I have used stickles on the wings.

Stamp With Us has the theme of 'a children's card'.

Stamp With Fun requires us to use 'shapes or punches' - I have used a border punch.

Finally, Creative Inspirations has a theme of 'stitching - real or faux' - I have done some machine stitching.

Here is my card:
All patterned papers used are from the S.E.I. ~ Chick-a-dee collection. I used chick-a-dee, anna's bananas and ga-ga.

I used a Fiskars border punch for the paper at the base of the card and threaded it with ribbon from my stash.

The image is Magnolia ~ Dreamy Tilda. She is one of my favourites. I coloured her with Copics and used Stickles for the wings.
I created a large layered flower with a mixture of silk, felt and paper flowers from my stash and used a Tim Holtz ~ Snap for the centre. The 'delight' tag is by Making Memories and I used Doodlebug crushed velvet brads to decorate.

The ribbons are a mixture of S.E.I ~ Chick-a-dee ribbons and left overs from my stash. The button brads are by Making Memories. The 'fragile' pin is a Tim Holtz ~ Trinket pin.
Finally I leave you with a pic of Henry ~ my 8 week old kitten.
Thank you for looking.
having a {me} day.
