Birthday tag

I love the colours of this birthday tag. I have embossed part of the front and added my dotted stamp to the top. The edges are swiped with some gold paint, and the pre-coloured butterfly has had Kindyglitz added. Finished off with some sparkly fibre at the bottom and ribbon at the top, and a birthday peeloff.
I am entering this one at

Make a wish

This is the first time I have coloured my new digi - 'Natalie the Poppy Fairy' that I won from The Whimsy blog. I have used mainly copics. I then layered onto a scollaped oblong 'nestie and then some paper from my stash. The little label on the side is adapted from another set. I would like to enter the following challenges
