Delectable Delia

Delia's cute, isn't she?  Now originally, I coloured her to use for my bestest friend's little girl, Lily's birthday (who is Lou and Euan's honourary sister!).  Her favourite colour is orange, hence how I coloured her.  But when I asked Lou whether she thought Delia or Gorjuss Bumble Bee suited Lily more, she opted for Bumble Bee.

So, I had a complete change of mind about my choice of papers: from MME Bloom & Grow to these Dovecraft Sugar & Spice ones.  And I checked out Sketch Saturday's sketch:
Oh my goodness, when I first saw this one I thought it was WAY too fancy for my style......but then seeing all the great inspiration from the team, I decided that it would be a brilliant challenge to have a go and I'm so glad I did! 

I've used rafia and Butter Mint Card Candy for embellishments and Delia has had some glamour dust added to her wings and wand and Gloss to her shoes and wand.  The greeting has also been completely glossed but my photo doesn't really show it.  After much deliberation, I used artistic licence and opted for a rafia bow in place of the the 3 button/ribbon details - hope that's ok.

So, I would like to enter it in:
