Diddy fairy!

Before I  get onto my second post for today, did you see that SCACD has got a new challenge blog called SCACD Friends With Heart Challenge Blog?  You may recall my cards here recently which use their gorgeous stamps and if you join in you have a chance of winning their lovely goodies too!  If you also become a follower before 5 April, you also have a chance of winning the new set of Copics Sketch 2011 pens!   I hope you don't sign up cos I wanna win it!!!  ;o

Anyway, onto the card!  I've made this card for the current "Think Spring!" challenge over at the Some Odd Girl blog.  I used the diddy fairy Bu'Fly Tia and Friend digi because I thought she would be perfect with the few papers I have left in my Crate Paper Sweet brand paper collection.  What do you think?


I wanted to keep it quite simple to just showcase her but of course I had to add a lickle, ickle bit of Glamour Dust on her wings!  I added the felt flower to give it some softeness and depth too (you can buy other colours from Ladybug Crafts Ink here).  I am going to send this to a very good blog friend who has been in hospital recently and I hope it will cheer her up!

I am also entering my card into this week's Cupcake Craft challenge for "Up in the Air" with optional green (I got a little bit in!), Stampvie and Friends for "Spring" and also Do It With Digis for children themed cards.



Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Crate Paper Sweet Branch collection
Stamps: Some Odd Girl Bu'Fly Tia and Friend
Mediums: Copics, Glamour Dust, gold glitter pen
Accents: Doodlebug ribbon, felt from stash
Tools: My Favorite Things rolled rose die (from Dies to Die For here) and leaf dies, Nestabilities scallop square, square and label dies
