Using Freebies

Hi Crafters, Hope you've had a great weekend, the weather seems to be picking up here a bit in Ireland, today was quite nice I even went for a wee spin on my Dads new mobility scooter, of course I couldn't resist, it actually goes at quite a speed, was very funny at the time, I noticed a dial with a picture of a tortoise and a rabbit, I said " Dad, you have it on tortoise can I put it on Rabbit to see what speed it goes" so my Dad put it on Rabbit and off I went, anyway, when I'd finished my Dad got on to make his way home (I have to add here that it was quite a nice day so there were people in their gardens) as my Dad took off my concerned brother shouts after him " Dad! remember that's on Rabbit" I thought I was going to pee myself laughing. 
Anyway, when I wasn't scooting about on my Dads scooter I got this little card made, Its using a freebie stamp by Whimsy Stamps from this months Papercraft Essential magazine, I've coloured her with copic markers and added some sakura glitter pen to her wings (I've just noticed I've missed some leaves out) There are a lot of die cuts on this card, the corners are from cuttlebug and my favourite are the edgelits from Stampin Up with the embossing folder to co ordinate, love them! The hearts embossing folder is also from Stampin Up which comes with two other folders. 


I coloured the white flowers with copics to co ordinate with the image and papers. 


Thats it from me for today, off to iron the uniforms for tomorrow, have a lovely evening. x
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
