Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!
It's been a very long and exhausting week around here, so I was so excited to decompress a bit and get some stampy time in! Here is a card I created for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC150. I am loving her new format of a new sketch every two weeks!
In my quest to continue creating Birthday cards, I pulled out the darling Pure Innocence Fairy Girl from My Favorite Things and colored her with Copic Markers. Her dress was paper pieced with the same papers I've used on the entire card, Ooh La La from My Minds Eye. I added lots of stitching with my Janome Sew Mini, and the border was created with the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-Namics. This is one of my favorite borders ever. I also cut a panel with the smallest banner die in the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics and added that behind the circle panel.
I am going though a bit of a "bling period" right now, and am especially loving these rhinestone circles that fit just perfectly with so many circles dies I have. I got mine at Michaels...their Recollections brand (I apologize in advance for anyone trying to get these in the Westbury NY store...I think I purchased their entire stash).
I picked up some Crushed Glass Glitter at my LSS and I've used it here on her wings. I just LOVE the look of this glitter, though you really do have to be a bit careful working with it...it can be quite sharp!
In keeping with my bling obsession, I added some rhinestones between each scallop on the border. I really love the extra pop it gives!
For the inside of my card, I added some more patterned paper along with a sentiment from the Pure Innocence Fairy Girl set, "Have A Magical Day". I added more stitching and some more rhinestones for good measure.
Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
