So here is today's card.
Well I tried something diferent with this card! I had some ready cut card bases in my stash but have never used them because they were too flimsy. So I cut one in half, Trimmed off a DL card and added the castle section to the top of it! I decorated the DL first then attatched the castle. The papersa I have used are from Pink petticoat and I have matted and layered with pink and green card. I have wrapped a piece of cross stitch thread around the centre panel.
The image I have used is from Karens doodles, she is justso sweet! I have cloured her with pro markers, and layered her onto a medium sized scalloped oval nestabilities die that i have inked with green around the edge. I have put 3 pearl gems in the corner, and hung a fairy charm from the cross stitch thread.
The castle top took quite some time as I had to measure and shape the triangles. Aghh Not sure I will do another one in a hurry, but I think i like the effect now that I have done it. The fairy wishes has been stamped onto a Nellie snellen multiframe die cut which has been inked around the edge, and I have tied a ribbon around the base of the turrets.
The card ended up being too long for an envelope, so I had to make a box for it. I have used all the papers and layered them onto a pink sheet of card and made a quilt effect and used a fiskars lace border punch down the side of the sheet. I have then attached a ribbon and added some pearl gems.
I will be entering this card in to the following challenges
