Crafting for all Seasons - My first DT card!

Well, here we go with another new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons.
Thank you so much for all your lovely wonderful creations for our last challenge.
Remember to stop by the challenge blog and see if you were amongst our winners.
So the new challenge is:
For this challenge we are thrilled to be sponsored by:
Please grab my banner
Prize: $10 gift card
Pink Cat Studio
Prize: 5 Digital Images
Prize: 2 digital images
For my card I have used an image called Tweet on Branch by Pink Cat Studio
So, here you go then:
The image is printed on to white card and then cut out with my Nestabilities.
I have used my Flexmarkers to colour the image and blue chalk around the edge of the Nestabilitie.

I followed an old sketch from Sketch n Stash. They have a sketch catalogue where you can choose from all the sketches they have used in the past - invaluable!!
The papers I have used are all from a Papermania pad called Venetian Skies.
I have used a shiny sparkling trim across each of the corners and added lace along the edges.
I finished off with a little blue bow and some blue gems.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out and I hope you like it too.
I shall be putting the DT links on my DT page as soon as I have a minute. Until then why not pop over to the challenge blog and have a look at what the fabulous DT members have made for your inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Please leave me a comment before you go, that way I know you popped in!
They really do mean the world to me.
