A Card!!! PWC135

Today schools were closed and it snowed about 6 inches here, so I called into work and told them I was taking a personal day. The roads were really bad and with an hour commute, driving was not what I wanted to do today. So I saved myself some major stress and time and just stayed home.

So what do you do on a free snow day, you play in the snow, color with the kids, cook and find time to craft. Today I was able to get some time to complete this weeks Paper Prettie Challenge. This weeks challenge was a sketch challenge. You can find the sketch here and here is my card:

Isn't she adorable? For this card I used SU cardstock and DP. I used Paper Prettie's Garden Fairy Katie for the main image. For the sentiment I used two Paper Pretties stamp sets. For the oval I used elegant sentiments and for the words I used the sentiment for Love Fairy Anna which I colored one word at a time to get them separated. I really like how that came out. I also used Colorbok rhinestones, Recollections flowers and chocolate pearls. I colored Fairy Katie with Copic markers and I also used pink colored pencils. Why doesn't copic have a pretty light pink? Like SU's Pink Pirouette, I love that color.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card. I hope you all have a great weekend. Feel free to join in our the challenge, you might win yourself a free stamp.

Hugs to all!!
