Emerald Faerie Birthday

Today I had finally been able to craft another card, after getting the good news that I am accepted for the Design Team at Penny's Challenges. I am really looking forward to it... The first challenge I will be creating something as a DT will start on February 1st. So it's my last chance to join their challenge...

I've been using one of my new digis from the Emerald Faeries Garden. They're sooo cute!

I will be sending this card to one of my pen pals for her birthday and I really hope that she will like the colours yellow and green...




Stamp: "Isla" from The Emerald Fairies Garden
Sentiment: "Wishing you a Magical Birthday" from LOTV Dreamy Day Sentiments Set, Numbers are WordArt
Ink pad in black
Colours: Polychromos from Faber Castell, JoyCrafts Decorative Chalks
Sketch: Stamp with Fun
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities, Magnolia Doohickeys
Papers: Asian Papers from Grimmhobby
Ribbon, ribbon with beads, button, stickles, plain papers and cardstock from my stash.


I am entering the card in the following challenges:

  18. I bet your pen pal loves it Melanie, it's lovely! The yellow & green are such fab cheery colours.

    Unfortunately some of the Sweet Stampin' DT girls have been unable to leave comments on your blog this week. The rest of the team have rallied round to try & make sure that everyone gets comments but it would be a tremendous help if you would consider the fix. Apparently this is due to blogger issues with an embedded comments box & the way to cure it it is to have a pop up box instead. If you need instructions on how to do this, please see here

    where Alison has provided a quick walk though, it's a simple process!

    Thank you so much & we appreciate you playing along with Sweet Stampin' xx
