Graph'it Challenge - Oranges and Lemons

The new Graph'it challenge this week is "oranges and lemons".  Along with green I don't tend to use orange and yellow much so this was quite a challenge.
For my card I have used the Delicious Doodles image called "Snowdrop Fairy" and coloured with her with my Graph'it pens and blender pen.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  I have highlighted parts of the image with my Graph'it gold sparkle pen and white pen.
    
  
For my card I have used various papers from Bearly Mine Designs - Plain and Simple, Simply Stripes, Shabby Vintage and Mini Dots.  On two of the corners I used a Doobadoo burlap stencil which I inked through with Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  On the Mini Dots yellow and orange papers I used a stamp that was a freebie with the Craft Stamper magazine of a flower with script writing and cut these out, screwed them up, held together with a brad and put a button on the top.

I have finished the card off with some lace, ribbon, flowers, buttons, gems, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, faux stitching and Joanna Sheen die-cut butterflies (coloured with my yellow Graph'it pens and highlighted with the gold sparkle pen) and die-cut fan (coloured with my yellow Graph'it pen).
