A Fairy Sweet Little Number :)

Picture 006c copy

Morning peeps and I hope that your retinas are still in one piece after the bright display here yesterday lol!!

We are almost at the end of the week and it’s time to head on over to the Lili Of The Valley Thursday challenge where this week we have a sketch by Bev

.. this one here.

So here’s my card and once again I actually did stick to the sketch  lol!!!
This is actually a card for a friend of mine.  By the time this post goes out she hopefully will have had it if my little ‘helper’ did her job properly!!! But I won’t put her name on here just in case!!!

I used Birthday Fairy cos I haven’t used one of these little sweeties for a while and I went a bit mad with me ‘E’ numbers as you can see from the list of Copics ….

E000, E00, E11, E21, R11, R21 (skin), E42, E50 (hair), E15, E29, E31, E33. E35, E37, E41, E57,  R85 RV0000, RV000, RV00, RV10 (the rest).

I also outlined the image quite heavily with Glamour Dust cos I like the way it makes it really stand out.

The papers are all from the Nitwits  Grin ‘n’ Bear It collection – the most delish shades of pinks and browns I think.

A bit of texture which I like!!

I used some 40mm white cotton lace and tied a strip of 15mm shocking pink no 72  microdot satin ribbon round it and then topped it off with a sparkly button.  It makes it a bit stronger and it sits on the card better if you attach a thin strip of card to the centre of the lace first – the bit you cover up with the ribbon.

All the above are of course available from Ribbon Girl

The pretty pink pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts – gorgeous :)

So that’s the old card done but  before I go,  I just HAVE to tell you about these little cuties ….


They are some of the new release which will go on sale on 10th November,  but if you are going to the SECC or NEC you will be able to get hold of them there.

They are just adorable aren't they :)
