Lemon Shortbread Bouquet for You Fairy

I saw that over on the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog they are having a DT call.  I first came across Lemon Shortbread's gorgeous images when I was on the Sweet Pea Stamps and Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team.  There are so many gorgeous images to choose from in the Etsy Store.

I have decided to try out for the Design Team as I would love to work on another Design Team.  I know lots of people get on Design Teams and take on too much and therefore soon have to leave when things get tough.  Being part of a Design Team I give 100% and have never missed a deadline on any of the Design Teams I have worked on over the years.  I am used to working for Design Teams via blogs and also via Facebook.  I am used to working on a rota for commenting and avidly do this on all Design Teams as I feel this is a very important part of DT role as it gives entrants encourage that someone has looked at what they have spent time creating and can possibly lead them to enter the challenge more often and possibly buy more images.

As I am applying for the Design Team I decided that I would make a card specially for the occasion.  I have used the Lemon Shortbread image called "Bouquet for you Fairy".

I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and highlighted areas with my Crafter's Companion clear overlay sparkle pen as a fairy is not a fairy without some sparkle is it?  I then fussy cut the image out.

The papers I have used are from the First Edition Love Letters.  I have used various papers from the pad for matting and layering, die-cut some out for the image to sit on and then used one of the backing papers to cut out the flowers.

I have finished this card off with some organza ribbon, grosgrain ribbon, stamped sentiment, die-cut greenery coloured in with my Promarkers and then added Viva pearl pen to the centre of the flowers.

Well I shall have to keep my fingers and toes crossed to see if I get picked for the Design Team.  Here's hoping.
