A Fairy Hello - Sweet Stamping Pixies August Challenge

Hello.

It's already August's second monday, so it's time for a new challenge at the Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge.   This month's challenge is a recipe challenge:  flowers, ribbons and die cuts.  Here's the card that came up with. 


I hope you will play along with us in our challenge.  We are being sponsored by Magnolia-licious this month.  Hop over to the Sweet Stamping Pixie Challenge blog HERE to have a look at the prize and the fabulous cards of my DT teammates to inspire you.

This oh-so-adorable fairy image is of Summer Flower Tilda.  She is from Magnolia's Summer Memories Collection 2012.



Those cute mushroom images are of Jolly Fungi from Magnolia's So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Collection 2010.  I've used my markers to colour the images for this card--Letraset Promarkers and Trias.  I've added glitter to Tilda's wings...hmmm...of which I've done a poor job at it--a bit lumpy in some places...LOL.

I've decorated the inside of my card very simply.  I wanted to show off the super gorgeous designer paper and not cover up too much of it.


Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.  Diana has both full-size and mini stamps.  If you don't see the image(s) you are looking for in stock, contact Diana and she will be more than happy to help you.  
Check out also her excellent selections of Memory Box and PoppyStamps dies, as well as those from Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.  I'm very appreciative of your visit and your encouraging and lovely comments.  Have a wonderful week.
