1, 2, 3, wheeeeeeeeeeeeee !!

It is time for another challenge over at paper crafting journey and this time our theme is Fairy's.

We have the perfect sponsor for this challenge as we are sponsored by Emerald fairies and they are offering the winner of this challenge 2 of their lovely digi stamps.

If you haven't tried an emerald fairy image yet let me assure you that you will not be disappointed - they are an absolute dream to colour and such fun images.

I have used the gorgeous "Isla" available here. Look how much fun she is having ! I coloured her with my pro-markers and highlighted the image with my Staedtler triplus fine liner pens.
I added some glamour dust to her wings and the dandelion she is clinging to and die cut the image with my oval nesties cutting the dandelion by hand before slipping it into the die.

I have used the sketch over at Sketches by Carly as my base and gorgeous papers from the basic grey Picadilly paper pad before adding 2 different types of lace (the green one had velvet in the middle, it's lush !) and a bundle of flowers brushed with some mica powder for a little extra sparkle & shine.
My sentiment (clearly handstamped from crafters companion) is stamped on a short length of twill and I added a button & twine bow as an "anchor".

I had so much fun creating this card - I hope you will join in and play along with us this fortnight at paper crafting journey - don't forget to check out the rest of the fabulous DT creations and all the details of the challenge over at the PCJ blog here.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;
