Hi peeps - hope you are all happy and having sunshine wherever you are.
Just popping by with this week's Challenge at Moving Along With The Times -
the theme has been chosen by the lovely Laurie who would like to see "Favourite Things" on your projects this week, and I'm sure we all have lots of those!!
This will be my last DT project for MAWTT - thanks to Hazel and Teamies for your friendship over the last few months. 
Hope you like the card - I'm not too sure about it myself! (You know when you have one of those days when nothing seems to work out as planned)!!
However, I do LOVE this stamp which was a birthday gift from a good friend of mine - it's called  "Sunrise" by Rachel Anderson, at Sweet Pea Stamps.
I have loads of "favourite things" but on my card I have used just a few of them -  Copics, Fairy, Glitter, Swirls!

The background for the fairy was brayered over the masked image with Kaleidacolor "Desert Heat" ink. The mask was then removed, and the stamped image coloured with Copics, and cut out with a Nestabilities Labels 4 die.  
The layer of black SU card, and the TH Flourish diecut were spritzed with Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist - Heirloom Gold.  
Corner punch - Anna Griffin.
The black and white paper is Rhonna Farrer  Urban Junque, the green base card is Amy Butler Sola by K and Co.
All edges inked with Brilliance "Lightening Black".
Sentiment - Crafty Individuals.
Glamour Dust on the large Butterfly wings.
Our lovely Sponsor this week is
My Mums Craft Shop
and the lucky winner will receive a £10 voucher to spend in their fabulous craft store.
Huge thanks to everyone who took part in last week's Christmas challenge - your projects were amazing. Do pop over to MAWTT to see who the winners are!
I am entering my card into the following Challenges:-
The Craft Room - Butterflies.
Simon Says - Anything Goes.
Papertake Weekly - Hot Hot Hot Colours!
Paper Play - Things with Wings.
The Stamp Man - Anything by T!M.

Love to all ~

What a beautifully created card Sylvia with gorgeous coloring. The butterflies are awesome and I love how you've shaded her gown. Such a stunning card and image. That's a beautiful frame! Yes, the storms have passed again for now but it's hotter than the Haitis here with indicies over 100 with no relief in sight but that's better than 20 "Hugs" Carol

Really lovely card Sylvia. I love the effect you hve created with the black and white frame and then the wonderful warm colour around the image. Quite different for you but personally I really like it! It's great to be back blog hopping I'm looking forward to a few hours peace to catch up. Still no end in sight with sorting my e-mail - think I'll have to give in and go to a new provider . Cheers Claire x
