Our challenge this week was to make a card with flourishes, girly girl flourishes with pearly curly thingies! I love cookies so I brought a fairy and used pink and blue ink. Our destination this week is for Michelle (fairygirlmichelle). My card will be going out to Michelle tomorrow.
When I read the challenge I knew I wanted to create a collage card. My fairy stamp was embossed in gold on a vanilla base. Then I sponged yellow, pink, green, blue and a neutral to blend the colors to create my bg. I added flourishes from SUís Priceless set and little flowers, mushrooms and sentiments from Recollections Fairy set. I paper pieced the fairyís petal skirt and added the pearly curly thingies!! I mounted the vanilla on a Baja Breeze base.
TFL!! Happy Tuesday!
