TheEastWind and Just For Fun

Welcome back fellow crafters, bloggers and friends. 

I have had a bit of a rough week, but I am feeling better than I was. Who knew that bed rest was so boring and exhausting. 

Today, I have two Design Team Posts to share with you, both of them featuring images from TheEastWind. 

The first Design Team piece is for the 'Just For Fun' Challenge Blog. This is our first Anything Goes challenge. 

I wanted to use a gorgeous image for my make, so I chose one from TheEastWind (Before I because part of their design Team lol).

This is the Image I used - 

Aurora Poppy. 
I chose this image as I love her gorgeous floating hear and the expression on her face. 

Here is my finished card - 

I coloured the image with Faber-Castell Colouring Pencils.
The flowers were cut using my Silhouette Cameo, with a black gem added to the center.
I glossy accented her eyes and her finger nails. 
The paper is from my stash as well as the kraft card. 
I distressed the image edging with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. 
I used the same ink on white card candi. 

I hope you have been inspired to enter our month long Anything Goes Challenge.....No excuses really is there lol 

The Second Design Team make I would like to share is actually for TheEastWind themselves. This is my first Blog Challenge Inspiration piece so I am a little excited!!!

Challenge Blog -

The Theme for this Challenge is 'Use Ribbon' and it will be using the freebie

'Belle Of The Ball'

This image is absolutely stunning and gives you so much shading opportunities when colouring her in. 

Here is my finished card - 

I coloured the image in simple colours, using Faber-Castell Colouring pencils.
I matted her onto coordinating dotted papers, red and black card from my stash. 
The Border is a Tonic Punch.
The embellishments are from my stash - Ribbon, Feather, Pearl Spray, Ribbon Rose, Glittery dots and flat backed gems. 

This challenge will run for two weeks on TheEastWind Challenge Blog. I really hope you will pop over and join in with this fab challenge! 

I would like to enter the above card into the following Challenges -
