My Very First Post as a Delicious Doodles Design Team Member - 8 March 2013 - Die-cuts

Today sees the start of another challenge at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog but it also sees the start of my first card to show as part of Teri's wonderful Design Team.  Am I excited?  Of course I am.  I love Teri's images.  The challenge this week is "die-cuts".
I had a look at Teri's images and decided to use one of her newer images called "Daffodils and butterfly".  I love the way that Teri has designed this around a frame so after colouring the image with my Promarkers, white gel pen and Sakura Stardust clear pen there was little to do with the image than stamp a "Happy Easter" stamp on it with sepia Versafine.  The backing papers I have used are from a K&Co pad I've had for some time now.  For the die-cut element of the challenge I have used a Marinane Designs corner and a Joy Craft butterfly die.  All of the die-cuts I have inked with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress ink with my Inkylicious brushes.  I have finished the card off with some yellow lace, seam binding ribbon and some pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
