Glitterbabe's Challenge

{Shew!}  I've been wanting to play the challenge over at Glitterbabe's and finally created for it late last evening!  Time is nearly up so I'd better get this posted quickly!! 

This week's challenge (#10) is to FREE UP A FREEBIE.  That's right ... select one of Stef's awesome 'freebie' images and along with the SPARKLE ... have fun creating!!  Here's what I've come up with using Stef's Wheelbarrow . . .

 (click on image to enlarge)
I have used designer paper from the DCWV glitter sweet matstack and the gems are by Zva purchased at Joan's Gardens on my trip last month to Indiana.  Of course my butterflies are from the Martha Stewart butterfly punch and I've added sparkle to their bodies by using portions of the gem swirls.  My adorable wheelbarrow image is showcased using Nestabilities Labels 14 dies and I've used Liquid Pearls for my faux pearl edging.  The little Garden Notes sentiment is from the Crafty Secrets Garden Girl stamp set and my coloring was done using Prismacolor markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope everyone in the paths of these storms is staying safe!  Last evening was a doozie ... never saw rain/hail fly sideways like that!  Yikes!  But, it's much calmer & cooler today!  You can certainly smell FALL in the air!  Happy Day Everyone!!

Hugs to ya!
