Not A Challenge, Fairys, Mushrooms and Ladybugs


I love to participate in the many different challenge blogs as much as I can but every once in awhile I just like to sit down and make a card. Such was the case with this one. This image is a recent purchase I made from Simon Says Stamp......which I highly recommend this company. Excellent service and reasonable to free shipping depending on the size of your order. I have listed my favorite shopping places to the right in my sidebar and there you can find a link to Simon Says Stamp.

This image is from Stampavie and is from the Rachelle Anne Miller line called "Lily Magic Fairy Ladybug Mushroom. I colored the image with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol. Cardstock is by Wausau and printed paper is a scrap from my paper stash. I used Spellbinder's Nestabilities to cut my shapes. Sizzix die was used for the curly Q vine and a Martha Stewart heart border punch. Prima flowers were added with a Glitterati rhinestone center to finish off the card. Completed card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you liked my card!

Susan, this is so cute! I'm like you - sometimes I just want to do a card with no perameters. The challenges are great for launching the creativity, but if we do too many that leaves no time for non-challenge cards, at least for me. This one is adorable and beautifully colored.

Awww - she's adorable! I colored up my Fairy Charlotte today and if I can stay awake long enough, I may get a card together this evening.

Hi Susan this is one gorgeous card that image is so loveable and I love how you have coloured her I alsolove your layout and colour combo. I know what you mean about sitting down to make a card just for the fun or love of it. I do that sometimes just to be able to do your thing.
