The April challenge at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge has kicked off and the team have created a beautiful assortment of inspiration using images from our exclusive sponsor  Julia Spiri.

Guest Designing this month, I used Mila on my card.

I have coloured the image with markers and then distressed and inked the edges of the my image and all my papers, using Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

My papers are from the 49 and Market Irrevocable Beauty pack.  My flowers are all 49 and Market too.

I've added two pieces of laser cut lattice (also 49 and Market).  I originally intended to keep it uncoloured, but once it was stuck down and I stepped back for a look, it looked a little washed out, so I painted it with Copic Opaque White.  I've added two wire butterflies and a few pearls.

The World Wide Open Design Team Challenge is open to anyone who serves on any design team around the world.  You can enter any project you like and use any image.

To see more from our fabulous sponsor, pop along to her store here:

we also have a Facebook group where you'll find loads of inspiration:

I have had such fun creating with Julia Spiri's beautiful images, and I'd like to thank her and the team for allowing me to join them for the last two months.

Thanks so much for popping in for a look today!
