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!!!
