Fairy Snow at Friday Sketchers #126



Happy Friday everyone!!! I hope you have had a wonderful week and are looking forward to the weekend. I am running a bit late with my life because I went on a little getaway to Atlantic City from last Saturday morning until Wednesday evening. It was a very nice break from my everyday humble surroundings. All of the glitz, flashing lights, and NOISE is fun for a while BUT when it's time for the quiet of home, IT'S TIME!!!

This week at Friday Sketchers we are being hosted by the talented Claudia who has designed a fun sketch for us. We also have a nice prize up for grabs which is being offered by Lauretta's Digital Stamps. I hope you will be able to come over and join with us this week so that we can see how you interpret the great sketch.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, and the DP is from the Bo Bunny Winter Joy Collection...thank you so much, Suzan, for sharing it with me!!! The background panel was machine stitched and the vertical panel was trimmed with a MS French Scroll ATP Punch Set. The image is from the Papilio Fairy Collection and obviously this one is called
Fairy Snow...isn't she beautiful!! She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding Angel Wings Shimmerz to her wings and Star Dust Stickles to the snowflakes and sleeve trim. For a tiny bit of sparkle and dimension I added small rhinestones in the center of the snowflakes--also a larger rhinestome to the corner snowflake ornament. The horizontal base is lovely ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon-- 1.5" White Pleated Satin and Purple Glitz Ribbon. The bow is easily tied with the Bow-Easy Tool. The floral treatment is made with lavender crystals, flower center bunches, and mulberry roses.

Sorry that I didn't finish the inside but if I get to that today I will edit my posting to show it to you. Gosh!! So much stamping, so little time!! LOL

I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using Claudia's sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
Aud, Bea, Claudia, Inge, Janneke, Jeanette, Jorunn, Tanja

Thank you so much for dropping by today to see what's happening here. I always love to read your delightful comments and sincerely appreciate each one of them. Tomorrow I will have my Just Magnolia posting and I hope you will come back and visit me again! Enjoy your day and hopefully I will see you tomorrow!!! Big hugs for you!!!!

What a trully fabulous card Jacque and that image is just toooo.... adorable - my fingers are itching to go purchase her, but I'm trying to sit on my hands, this is an expensive time of year for us all :O( I so love your work and keep a permanent link on my blog sidebar directing folk here to check out your amazing creations :o) Glad to hear you had a nice getaway. I'm just back home from a fabulous vacation in Florida - arriving back to the cold and damp UK has not been a pleasant experience, but as you say it's always nice to be back in your own home!

Another gorgeous card, Jacque! Hope that you had a good time in Atlantic City and brought home some of their money! Yes it's fun, but you're right after awhile all the noise, people and confusion get to you. Welcome home to peace and quiet!

Hello!

Lovely card and I was surprised not to see Tilda or magnolia this time! I save many of your pictures as inspiration; mostly how you distribute the papers and ribbons because I don't have any Magnolias...
Hope you don't mind,

Charlotta

Another beautiful card, and the colors are just wonderful! The purple ribbon and your purple dp go together so well with just the right amount of glitz. This is a great sketch and you did a fabulous job with it!
