Just Because - FFFC #116 Things With Wings


It's Friday and it's time to start a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  It's our Challenge #116 and woo-hoo...I get to be the hostess for this one.  I've chosen 'Things with Wings' as the theme for this challenge.  We're being sponsored by Marianne Design.
To get details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog.  Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created for inspirations.  

Here's a front-panel side-step card that I've created for the challenge.

And you know me, the inside of my card is also decorated...

Seeing that we're being sponsored by Marianne Design, I'm using some of their dies to create the floral and foliage arrangements:

- Creatables Designer Doily LR0130
- Creatables Flowers LR0111
- Creatables Leaves LR0156
- Creatables Swirls LR0116

As for the images being featured, I am using a couple of adorable Emerald Faeries images.

This one is called 'Pip'

and this one is 'Ebony'.

These digital stamps can be found at the A+T Digital Designs Shop.

I've coloured the images with my markers, Letraset Promarkers and Pantone Trias.  I've added glitter to the fairy wings.  I used parchment paper for the wings of the dragonflies.

Template for the card can be found under the 'Templates' page above or here, if you're interested.

Challenges I am entering with this card:
I ♥ Promarkers Challenge #223 - Stripes (fairies wearing striped pants and tights)
Inky Chicks Challenge #31 - Special Shapes
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #84 - Outdoors
Charisma Cardz Challenge #13 - Sparkle and Shine (glitter on the wings)

I am sitting in awe. I am astounded that your flowers are all handmade. They are beautiful and so much more gorgeous than ANY bought ones. And you make them. OMG you ever sleep? Your blog is filled with the most gorgeous cards I've ever seen and to imagine the flowers are handmade is just throwing me for a loop. Your coloring is outrageously beautiful. I am totally in awe and putting your blog on my blog under my "Inspiration" tab because I intend on visiting you more often! This card is gorgeous...I saw it as your hostess card at Fussy and Fancy. I don't know what else to say except that you are one darn talented person and I'm glad I ran across your blog. Hugs, Gail
