Southern Girls Challenge Nine

Today's card is for Challenge Nine at Southern Girls and the theme for this one is "Anything Goes" check out this beautiful Digi Stamp,she's called Ebony and is from the Emerald Faeries Collection at Debs Creations,one of this challenges sponsors who also happens to be one of the design team at Southern girls.

I sized the image and reversed it also before printing it out and colouring it with Copics. I inked the background and added stickles to the wings. The grass was cut out using the Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook Cartridge.The background papers are Ooh La La by My Mind's Eye and the bunting was hand cut using left overs from My Minds Eye 6x6 paperpack Fine and Dandy and a brown fine liner was used to draw the strings.

Some tiny alphabet stamps were used to create the greeting.

I forgot to photograph a close up of the ladybird but it was created using a brad,a red Copic and a fine liner.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Freshly Brewed28,Celebrate,
Pixie Cottage 50,Celebrate,
Simon Says,Celebrate,

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 600 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
