DT card for the Without Words Challenge!

Good Morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are well and that you had a good weekend.
We had glorious weather yesterday and a nice family day, just perfect really.

I have some happy news to share with you today.
A couple of weeks ago the lovely Squirrel contacted me to ask if I would like to join the Design Team of the Without Words Challenge. Even though I very surprised to be asked I didn't hesitate in accepting. Its a fabulous challenge and the DT ladies (the Word Birds) are all so friendly and very talented.

So today is the start of  a new Without Words Challenge 
This month our fun theme is

use oranges, browns and greens

For this challenge we are sponsored by
MY CRAFTY HEART with a £10 voucher for the winner

So here is my first DT card.
I love this sweet image from the wonderful Wee Stamps and really enjoyed colouring her.

Items Used:
Digi Stamp - Wee Stamps Rowan Fairy coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Papers - First Edition Boho Chic and Blank Canvas
Butterfly Wishes Die - Clearly Besotted Stamps
Sentiment - Happy Everything ~ Clearly Besotted Stamps

If your pop along to the Without Words Challenge blog you will see the amazing creations made by the design team and also see who were the winners of the last challenge.
I hope lots of you will join us. Please remember our special rules:
A clean and simple design
Handcoloured image
Minimal or no embellishments
Sentiments are allowed

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
A Heck of a Challenge - Autumn Colours
Divas by Design - CAS
Creative Moments - Anything goes/Autumn
Moving Along with the Times -Anything Goes
Polka Doodles - Autumn

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my blog this morning. I will be back a bit later with my DT card for the Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge
bye for now
