Fairy Sparkle

Hi there everyone,

Back to school today, hence the late posting.  Today's card was made for the Sketch n Stash challenge - it's the first time I've used a sketch to make a card, but I really enjoyed it.  This week you could choose from a catalogue of sketches and here's the one I chose ...

This card uses two of my favourite things - shades of purple and fairies. Here's the finished design ...

Part of the challenge is to use some new or neglected stash on your card - I managed both! Lol.  The gorgeous papers are by Karen Nueburger and have been in my stash for what seems like forever!  The new item is the pretty little fairy stamp by Whimsy, which was part of a free set on the current issue of Papercraft essentials magazine.  She is coloured with my Promarkers and her wings are all sparkly with glitter (which doesn't show very well on the piccie!)  I think I managed to follow the sketch, adding a LOTV sentiment and a metal corner just to balance out the design.  If you would like to know anything else, please leave a comment below and I will answer.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Emergency Crafters - Butterflies, Birds or anything with Wings
Make my Monday - A Midsummer Night's Dream

See you all soon,
Hugz, Jan xx
