Die Cut Dreams #101 - DT Card

Good morning my blogging friends.  Here we are at the start of another week so that must mean it is time for a new challenge at Die Cut Dreams.  Thank you once again to all those who entered our last challenge.  Please remember to stop by the Die Cut Dreams challenge blog to see if you were one of our lucky winners.
So, onto the new challenge and this time the theme is:
(Use a charm/s on your creation)
So time to get your thinking hats on and get crafting.
Here is my project for this fortnight's challenge:
I used that beautiful Sugar Nellie image called Cherry Pip that I won from Elaine's blog a while ago.
I love her so much that I just had to go and buy the others in the collection so look out for those in the coming weeks.  I also decided that I would give this "no lines" technique a go too - and I gotta say I'm quite pleased with the results.  I keep seeing techniques on the Make it Crafty and Make it Colourful blogs but never get round to entering them in the challenges in time - maybe one day!!! Lol.
The image is coloured with my promarkers and I used my nestabilities to make the die cut.  The papers are Papermania Henbury Lane  (must get some more of these soon!) and that huge big sunflower was from Corry in Canada (thanks hun!)  The Centre was blue and white but I coloured over it with a dark purple promarker so it fitted with my colour scheme.
The three little charms are from my stash as are the purple and yellow flowers.  The yellow organza ribbon (which you can barely see now I look at it!!) is of course from Crafty Ribbons.  The stamp in the bottom right hand corner is from Clarity Stamp, one of Barbara's Clever Corners.

Well peeps, I can't wait to see what you all come up with over the next two weeks.  Have fun!
