SHOPPING OUR STASH #196 - The Earth Has Music

Hello crafty peeps! We have a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH, and it's a special one. This week we are collaborating with the talented ladies at Words 2 Scrap By, where they give you word prompts to inspire you by! Very cool! This month, their challenge is The Earth Has Music. Here's how I interpreted this:

 and the inside:

Isn't that the sweetest little Hydrangea Sprite?!! I colored her with Spectrum Noir markers, fussy cut, and popped her up on foam squares. Her wings and the centers of the flowers have diamond Stickles on them for added sparkle. 

Oooh! Sparkly goodness!!

I hope that you get the chance to play along this week at Shopping Our Stash and also Words 2 Scrap By! Please do check out the amazing talents of my teammies and the gals at W2SB! Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day!
