Purple Fairy

Good morning! This week our challenge at Flutter By Wednesday is being sponsored by Pattie's CreationsThere is a prize of 3 digi's from Pattie's Creations store to be won so I hope you'll join in this week's challenge for your chance to win!!



Pattie provided several images for the DT to use, and I have used this little fairy. I chose to color her up as if she is dressed in a flower, with her bodice in green and her skirt in purple. As a general rule, I am NOT a purple kind of gal and seldom use that color at all. However, I wanted to try something different. I think it turned out quite stunning. I printed the image onto Neenah card and then cut it into an oval shape using one of my Spellbinder oval dies. I matted it using the Spellbinder scalloped oval die.

The cardstock and DP that I've used are by DCWV -- a pad I've had for quite a long time called Latte. The solid strip across the front is punched using an EK Success border punch. The ribbon is from my stash and doesn't have a brand on the roll, but I purchased it from Hancock Fabric. Under the bow is a small crochet doily from Michael's Crafts, and the pearls are by Recollection.

This week's challenge is everyone's favorite--Open Challenge! Anything goes as long as you have a butterfly or fairy on your creation!! 

Hope you all have a great day. I'm out the door in just a little bit to have my annual boob smashing -- ugh -- and then to attend to a list of errands. As a side note, we've been having a most unusual week thus far weather wise. Sunday morning I woke to a dusting of snow on my porch and deck. Yesterday the temperatures reached spring-like 60's, followed by a heavy rain storm in the evening. This morning I find another dusting of snow on my deck. March can't seem to figure out if it wants to be a lion or a lamb -- crazzzy!

  7. I will tell you my secret to get glitter to sparkle...I lay it down on the grass when the sun is at it's highest, and take the photo from on top of it..does that make sense..I lean over and make sure my shadow is behind me and ...click...
