Flutter By Wednesday meets Whiff of Joy and Pile It On

This week on Flutter By Wednesday the challenge has been set by the mega talented Kim and she would love to see you use your favourite quote along with your butterfly or fairy, can you believe I don´t own any quotation stamps so I have used one of my favourite sentiments.
Whiff of Joy have set the challenge of adding Bling to your project and Pile It On say Good things come in "Threes".

I have coloured my sweet image with Copics and hopefully I will get better as time goes on. This is the first time I have used these but do feel a genuine love for them already. I have added a wee bit glamour dust to her wings and my papers are from Designer Extreme Vol 1. Flowers and gems are from my stash apart from the punched out retros which I also coloured with my copics.

I hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend doing what you like best of all.

Gorgeous card Nicola, I told you once you had the Copics you would love them.....LOL
and isn't it great you can use them to color flowers, gems, just about anything. Glad you're back home and having fun with your new toys.
