Girls Rule at Dutch Dare

Hi everyone, there's a new challenge over at Dutch Dare this week - 'Girls Rule'. We want to see your creations for girls this week. We're being sponsored by the fabulous Lacy Sunshine and we were so lucky to be given an image to use. Here's my DT card...

 This one is called Eleanor and Pickles Dinosaur and is available from their shop. Just click on their name above....I've coloured using Copics. I decided to make this one bright and cheerful to brighten up the dull days we're having here in Lincolnshire at the moment...I've added a sentiment and a butterfly both of which started out white and have been coloured using copics to match the image. I also coloured white flowers so everything co-ordinated well. In amongst the layers you can just spot my Marianne border threaded with orange ribbon. The spotty backing paper is from the Crafters Companion Toread cd (rapidly becoming a favourite). I hope you like this, I had loads of fun colouring her. Pop over to the challenge blog and have a look at the other fab inspiration from my talented team mates.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Make it Monday 
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes  
Through the craft room door - anything goes 
Created with love challenges - anything goes 
Ooh-la-la - Four legged friends 
Joanna Sheen - Layer it up

Thanks for looking. I'm gonna have a steady day today as Fibromyalgia is still acting up, though not as bad as yesterday. Hope you all have a fun day and I'll see you again soon.

Helen xx
