Believe in Fairytales...

Are you sick of winter yet? I know I am! We've had snow just about every day for close to a month, and it is getting old. I needed a rush of summer colors, so I decided to ink up September Harvest by Sweet Pea Stamps. Isn't she gorgeous?

I colored her with copic markers in nice, warm tones, and then gave her some sparkle with Spica pens in Buttermilk, Peach, and Clear. The pretty designer paper is a shimmer paper from my stash, and the flowers were made using the Olivia Cuttlebug dies.

Challenge's participated in with this card:
Crafty Sentiments - sketch
Fussy & Fancy - dazzle
Allsorts Challenges - tag, ticket, or label

Be sure to stop by tomorrow as I will be posting blog candy. I'll give you a little hint, today's project gives you a sneak peek of part of the candy...

Hi Melissa

A beautiful card. Love your image - it is coloured perfectly.

Great use of colour and your label is gorgeous.

Thank you for playing along with my challenge at Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx

p.s. No - not fed up with Winter yet. When Spring and Summer are here I have to garden and don't have so much craft time - so Winter suits me best LOL!!
