A Fiary Tale Sketch

Happy Friday All!

TGIF, that's all I can say! Today is new challenge day over at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something and this week we have two really easy challenges for you. I hope you will join us and give these a shot and you could even combine them!

First I have my JM card to share. This week we have a fabby sketch by our super talented Dawny. I have to say I loved this one and I know I will use it again and'll see from my SS card next that I sorted of used it again already!

I started with some DCWV papers from the Old World stack and then stitched the edges on the sewing machine. The center circle was created with my Nesties and the tapestry CB embossing folder. I colored my Fall Tilda with Copics and then cut her out and adhered her to the circle. I've embellished with flowers, brads, ribbon, altered chipboard hearts and a tag and then a sentiment from the ticket set at Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Quixotic Challenges: Alter It
All That Scraps: Die Cuts
Crafty Creations: Winged Things
Our Creative Corner: Embossable
Colour Create: Ivory, Duck Egg Blue, and one other color

Now for my SS card this week we have the theme of Fairy Tales and we are sponsored by Magnolia-licious! So I've created a card using another cute Tilda.

This card uses some Bohemia papers from My Minds Eye and I've stitched the edges and done some distressing as well. For Tilda I paper pieced her clothing to match the papers and then added glitter to make it all that much more girlie. I've embellished with ribbon and a metal frame, sticky pearls, flowers, and more glitter. The sentiment is from the ticket set at Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Creative Inspirations: Recycled Element (the metal frame)
Paper Sundaes: Metal

Thanks for dropping by today, I truly appreciate the visit. I'll be back shortly with the winner of my blog candy! Hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Stamping,
