Quixotic Paperie DT-CASE us

Good afternoon all! I didn't think I'd be here writing this actually as my internet connection has been off all day! I hate it when that happens! Anyways, am here now:) Before I start with myQuixotic post I'd just like to say thank you to all of you who voted for my card over at TGF Royal Battle-our team The Quixotic Stampers are through to the next round!

So the challenge this week at Quixotic Challenges is to CASE one of the Design Team members work-this could be a particular past creation or just their general style. I chose Simonne-our newest member of the team-her work is absolutely gorgeous! I'd recently treated myself to this beautiful Kraftin Kimmie Bird fairy-(unfortunetly its just gone out of stock but I'm sure it'll be back real soon!) and I found this gorgeous card here made my Simonne a few weeks ago so I had to CASE it! I've used the same papers which are Basic Grey Origins-sooo lush! The sketch is courtesy of the OCC. I used one prima flower which I painted with Shimmerz and added a little yellow rose to. I hope I managed to capture her style! It'll be very fun seeing the entries this week-to see who CASE's who!

Here's an image close-up:~

I'm going to enter this in the following challenges:

Crafts and Me: fairies or Wings
Cute Card Thursday: Dimensions (silicone glue is used to create this)
Pile It On-Animals
Simons Says-distressing-ink distressing using spice marmalade

For anyone that's interested this has gone on sale in my etsy shop:) Well that's all from me today. Pop back tomorrow as it'll be a double posting day and I'll have some big news to share!
