Guylou's Inimitability Challenge

Good morning!  It's super early for me!  In fact, I'm still sleeping as this post goes live!  I've got some exciting news and a card to share!  My card is for the new challenge on Guylou's Inimitability Blog - Things With Wings! I am excited because I was invited to be Guest Designer for this challenge, so I got to create alongside the rest of the fabulous GI DT!  How fun!

Here is some information from Guylou about the challenge:

Title: Things with Wings Challenge
Welcome to another challenge at Guylou's. This time our challenge is about things with wings. 

Challenge Deadline:
You have until 10:00pm on March 15th to link your project to the InLinkz at the end of this post. Please make sure your project matches the requirements before you link it.

How to participate:
You can enter only ONE project per challenge, but if you use a Guylou's Inimitability digistamp, your project will count for two entries. If you don't have one of her digistamps and your budget is tight; please check her online store where several freebies are available.

A winner will be selected randomly and will win:
1. A $10.00 gift certificate from Guylou's online store
2. The winner will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

OK, so here is my card for the challenge:

I started with a card base of SU Pool Party and layered with fun patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary (Mary, Mary) collection.  My cute Guylou's image is Starla.  She can be found in Guylou's store here.  The matching sentiment comes free with the image.  I printed Starla on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics.  I added lots of Stickles for some extra sparkle.  A double-loop bow and a tiny paper rose from my stash finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks, Guylou, for the opportunity to Guest Design for the challenge!  Be sure to visit Guylou's Inimitability blog and check out the fantastic creations from Guylou and her team!

My card is also for Aud Sentiments Challenge #49 which was to create a project with the words Happy Birthday in the sentiment.

Have a great day!
