Butterfly Dance - BnW Sketch Challenge

Hello my dear blogging friends! Hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend (for all of you who celebrated) and Happy Easter Monday to all who are lucky enough to have another holiday today. We had a wonderful weekend with lots of sunshine and Easter fun.

Today it's time for a new fortnightly Belles 'n Whistles Challenge hosted by my fabulous DT sister Anki! Anki came up with a fantastic sketch:

And this is my take on the sketch
I used this image from the new Fairy Friends Collection called 'Fairy Dance'. I colored her with my Prismas and Copics (for skin). To make the Pencils look even more brighter I used a colorless blender pencil. (Colors I used arelisted at the end of this posting). DP is from Basic Grey ('Hello Luscious'). Circle sentiment is from Whimsy's Spring Letter Seals. Circle die is from Spellbinders and the flourish die is from Magnolia. Ribbon, flowers, gems & button are from my stash. I used Star Dust, Waterfall and Platinum Stickles for some glitz. Butterflies are made using an EK Success punch.

Come on and join us at the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge blog for this fun challenge! I'm looking forward meeting you there and see all your fantastic creations! And while you are there don't forget to visit my fellow DT sisters blogs to see all their fabulous projects!
