Dream Valley Challenges - My very first DT card!

Hiya!

This is my very first DT card for Dream Valley Challenges - woohoo! How exciting :-)
Our very first challenge is a nice easy one to start us all off gently - Anything goes!

I took it as an opportunity to get out all my favourite things:
Beautiful Tilda, coloured with my lovely promarkers and a nice bit of sparkle :-) The papers are Pink Parfait from Forever Friends. Then of course there's my nesties for the circle. A bit of ribbon from my stash and then some flowers, gems and pearls. 

I cut the sparkley butterfly from some Henbury Lane papers and then added some sparkley swirls in glitter glue.


I really hope you can join us for our first ever challenge! There are fab prizes up for grabs:

1st prize is a £10 voucher to spend at Lili of the Valley

 2nd prize is Fashionista and Dude Simply Sassy set



and 3rd prize is Windswept Simply Sassy


How I wish I could enter!!! :-)
Love 'n' hugs,
