Aurora Wings Clover Pixie Flower Birthday card


Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to a couple of new friends who are joining us as followers this week. Ka of Stamping Smiles Designs, lives in Wisconsin with her husband and is a talented card maker with a varied style. She has been blogging since January and it would be great if you popped over to say hello. Vicki from Stamp Smiles has been crafting for many years and has served on numerous Design Teams. She has a wonderful, eclectic style and you can find lots of inspiration and tutorials on her blog.

Well, it is time for another challenge over at Fairy-tale Challenge Blog  where I am pleased to be a Guest Designer. This time the challenge is Flower Power and we are sponsored by


Our Sponsor 2015


I chose to use their Clover Pixie for my card and came up with this :-





I printed the digi stamp twice onto white card and coloured it with Copics, before fussy cutting some of the flowers so I could decoupage them onto the base image. I hand cut a mask to cover the stamped image and sponged blue ink onto the background, before sticking on the flowers and adding some glitter to sparkle things up a bit.


I cut the image out with a die from one of the My Favorite Things Blueprints sets, and I mounted it onto a piece of card that I impressed with a PTI Impression plate. A little banner die and some baker's twine finished it off. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Why not pop over to the Fairy-tale Challenge Blog to see what the talented Design Team have for you and join in with us this time. Have a good Friday the 13th - hopefully some of Clover's magical Pixie dust will keep us safe today!
Thanks for stopping by
