Autumnal Fairy

Hiya folks!

Hope I find you all well this weekend? Many thanks to all those who gave me their best wishes. I do appreciate it folks - you are so caring out there. The cold is a bit better today, no headache, just loads of snot!! And sneezes! LOL. No sympathy from the family though - I'll remember that next time they get a cold!!

So, onto my card then. Today I have just released a brand new digi image over at Delicious Doodles named 'Jewelled Fairy', and here she is:


Hope you like her folks! I decided I wanted to colour her in autumnal colours, so out came the watercolour pencils (again - must get some of those markers everyone keeps on about). These colours fit the theme at Charisma Cards this week, which is 'Autumn colours'. I used a layout sketch from last week's Totally Gorjuss challenge, but am way behind because of the cold making me poorly, so it won't get entered there sadly.


My papers are from various sources, all digital, and all 'tweeked' to have autumn colours too. I have used spare card bits for making the flowers with using my punches, and some gems for their centres. These fit the themes at Cute Card Thursday and Polka Doodles, as they both want us to make our own embellishments, and at Stamp Something who want us to use Punches.


The bow is also hand-tied, using organza ribbon from the stash. I have used some (ssh) peel-off corners also from the stash. I have added some more bling in the shape of some stickles on the image, and some gold card in the flowers and leaves, and also some gold dimension paint dots at the ends of her wings. This fits the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar this week - 'Sparkle and Shine'.


Last but NOT least, this card fits the challenge at Fab 'n' Funky - 'Use a digi', and Flutterby Wednesday - 'Open theme + Butterfly/Fairy/Angel'.

OK then, off to catch up on some DT stuff that I'm way behind on, oh, and some boring old HW. Catch you later folks!
