Fairy Best Wishes

I’ve been making cards all morning – I have four done. Two are graduation cards which are very similar to ones I’ve already posted. One is for an Alphabet Swap and I’ll post it Monday after it has been received. The one I will share today is made with a new stamp that I WON from 2RedBananas!! Thanks so much, Jeanette! You can find the blog here, and here is a direct link to the newest challenge – to use ribbon. Oh, and here is a link to the 2RedBananas store!

Briefly, here are the items I used for the card. The image is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I added LOTS of glitz with a glitter pen (not sure that’s what it’s called, but that’s what I’ll call it! :) ) I used FlowerSoft for her bouquet. I sponged the edges with Orchid Opulence ink by Stampin’ Up! and matted it. I used a Cuttlebug border embossing folder on white strips for behind the image and for the sentiment panel and also sponged those edges. I used the glitter pen on them, too. The background paper is by Die Cuts With a View Pocket Full O’ Posies matstack, and I added a sheer purple ribbon with white dots. (I guess this qualifies for this week’s challenge!) I wish I could show you the sparkle, but at least you can get a little idea of it by the small picture.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
