Celebrating with Ike's World

     Our next challenge at Ike's World starts today and, as always, our theme is Anything Goes but we have an optional twist of "Fairly Flying" - anything with fairies or anything that flies.   I love this image from Ike's Art, called "Celebrate" !!  Isn't it fabulous how she seems to be 'flying'?  :-D

     I decided on a basic black and white combo with a blast of monochrome gold for this card.  I used my ProMarkers for coloring the image, and cut it with a stitched die from Memory Box.  I framed it in black and gold with dies from a set by QuicKutz.  I do love stitched dies.  I think they are my favorites.  They add such great visual interest and texture.

     I put everything onto a white card front and added the black flowers and black bow.  Pretty CAS but with an eye catching flair.  I'm very pleased with it.
