Tiddly Inks - Monochromatic Challenge

This weeks challenge over at Tiddly Inks is to create a monochromatic card - of course I chose teal my favorite colour of all time. I started by digging through my stash and cutting inchies of my favorite teal papers to create a teal patchwork background. I then printed the awesome Cherry Bug with her stack of cupcakes, dug out all my teal copics and set to making her tealy pretty - I love her sparkly wings! The banner was just to finish it off and send a message to the little girl getting this birthday card - my lovely niece Samantha.
This is my first card as Guest Design Team member at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog - and I am so excited to be working with such a talented group of ladies and having so much fun working with Christy's delightfully delovely images!
