Hello From The Heart - Sweet Stamping Pixies June Challenge


Today is the 2nd Monday of the new month of June, so it's time for a new challenge at the Sweet Stamping Pixies.  The theme for this month is SUMMER.  Here's the card that I've created.  

I went with summer colours for the theme because I don't have any summer fairies/pixies.  And this beautiful fairy image that I am using is actually called Spring Bringer.  She is one of Silvia Zet's creations, from a Whimsy Stamps stamp bought from All That Scraps.

I've coloured the image with my markers.  I've also added some glitter to her wings. 

I hope you can play along with us in our challenge.  To give you more inspirations, have a look the fabulous cards that my DT teamates have created HERE--check out the prize too.  And you have an entire month to join us!!!  

As for me, I am using this card as my entry into the following challenges:  
Crafting Life's Pieces June Challenge - sketch
Let's Ink It Up June Challenge - Use your favorite embellishments (flowers and pearls)
All That Scraps - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me Challenge #87 - Lace
