Me - A Guest Designer!!

Hi there,
Wow, two posts in two days - must be nearly Spring! Lol
So this post is a little extra post as I was a Spotlight Winner for challenge #93 over at Crafting by Designs.
It was such a surprise to get the email from Doris and when she asked me if I would like to do a GDT spot - well I had to think about it for....... like a nano second!! hahaha.
Of course I would, how fabulous.
So I got to choose which challenge I designed for too, which was a bit of a treat.
I plumped for this one:
(can include sprites and fairies)
Well, no contest I can tell you - I knew exactly which image I was going to use too.
It just had to be one of Mitzi's fabulous Sprite images from 
I love Mitzi's images and have nearly all the sprites - might be a bit addicted actually. Lol
So, I chose to use Linnea Sprite for this card and here she is:
Now I know what you are thinking - Linnea flowers are pink aren't they?
Well, yes they are but I wanted this to look more like snowdrops as it was for a Springtime birthday, hence the colours.
I have used my Spectrum Noir Pencils for this one, I just love the way they blend so beautifully.
I have added some Glamour Dust glitter to her wings, not sure you can actually see it in the picture though - it is there, honest! The gorgeous little flowers are from Prima and I have had them for ages.  In fact I am surprised they still had some sticky on them! 
I am learning with my colouring that sometimes less is more! So I am trying to leave some white space when colouring. I kinda like it - what do you think?
The gorgeous papers are from Raspberry Road at Lili of the Valley and this pad is called Shabby Shack.  I love these papers, such good quality - such a shame they have stopped producing them.  Not sure I shall be using them up too quickly!!

So, here is a little close up of her wings - you can see the glitter can't you?
So there you have it, my GDT card for the current challenge over at Crafting by Designs.
Thank you Doris for asking me, I have really enjoyed it.
