Southern Girls Challenge 6

It's my last Challenge as Guest Designer :( and this weeks Southern Girls challenge is"Your Favourite Colour" Now,I don't really have a favourite colour as such but when I look back over my blog there seems to be a bit of a pattern with most of my cards,I love to use PINK! So when I saw this fabulous image by one of this weeks sponsors "Make it Crafty" I knew that Pink was definitely the way to go! The Mushroom House spoke to me,whispered in my ear ,"Make me into an Easel card" so that is exactly what I did! I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoyed making this card,I coloured the Digi image using Copics,added a generous sprinkling of glitter to the spots and edges then when it had dried added some more sparkle with a few dobs of stickles.

Then I went a little bit Cricut crazy,cutting grass in different lengths from thin white card stock , then,with the press of a button the grass then came out topped with flowers! I had so much fun with this! then I pressed another button and the grass came out taller! WOW! I'm definitely going to do this again! I coloured the grass and flowers using a selection of Copics.
I used my trusty Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for this,one day I shall buy a different cartridge but for the moment I am still enjoying playing with just this.

From another copy of this printed digi I coloured up just the steps from the house,these I used to create a path up to the house,the last I mounted onto foam pads acting as the stop for the easel. I created a flower also using the Cricut and a pearly button. I'm afraid I can't remember who the design paper at the base is by,these were leftovers from my Scrapbooking class.(This is a scheduled post as I'm at class at the moment!)

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
FBC23,Show off your style,

PTT21,Easel Cards,
OSAAT39,Favourite colours,
CES12,Think pink,

How much fun can you pack into a card!?!
A toadstool house for a wee fairy, glitter for fairy-dust, tall grass for hiding, stepping stones for a well-worn welcoming path, flowers for sweet smelling, and a pearl for natural beauty.
You and that Cricut are quite a dynamic duo!

Nancy in Iowa said...

Not sure what happened - I posted a note - only to find it 'magically disappeared'...

WOW - you are quite a dynamic dul - you and your Cricut.
This is such a charming card. Love the color - lots of wonderful items are pink! Baby girl blankies, bubble gum, cotton candy, and don't forget "tickled pink". The toadstool is just begging for a wee fairy to move in, the grass is perfect for hiding, the flowers add joy and sweet fragrance, the stepping stones create a worn and welcoming path and the pearl is a perfect embellisment for this fanciful, fun card.
