Funky Fairy's Challenge : 1st DT card :-)




Hi everyone, would you believe it I had a power cut this morning just as I was in the middle of posting this ! I had just launched the Simon Says Challenge blog and then puff, out went the lights !!

Anyway, these are my 1st cretions as a fully fledged Funky Fairy :-) I have been wearing Amy's carnival wings all week ha ha ( might show y'all a piccy later ha ha). The theme this week is GREEN
I used the Dots are Distressing and It's so Distressing papers that I downloaded quite a while ago and have used them over and over again, I love em. They are available to download fron the Funky Fairy Papercrafts online store.

I also used a download from the Digital Stamp Oasis online store for the card's main image. The image on the post it note holder is from the Daisy and Dandelion do crafts set.
I inked all the edges with distressed ink, I used a little bit of ribbon from my messy draw and a few green flat backed pearls from papermania. The sentiment is also from the Digital Stamp Oasis, I used a SU hardware thing ( what're they called ) and used SU brads to fix.

I am offering the post it note holder and a Parker pen to an entrant into the challenge, so if you would like it you have to enter ! To be in with a chance of winning the Funky Fairy Challenge you cannot link it with other challenges tho !

Today is also the day my time as a DT for the Digital Stamp Oasis officially starts :-) Though I have been using the gorgeous images for a few days now, i just love em :-)

Thanks for looking and I really appreciate your comments, so please leave me one :-)

This is gorgeous Lorraine - I just love your layout and colours (green is one of my favourites - not being a 'pink' girl). Congrats on your DT'ship.
Thanks for your suggestions (it's good to have someone who see's as I see - if you know what I mean) You're right I tried to follow your instruction straight away - sadly I'd stuck things down too well (boohoo) so it will have to stay as it is. I did alter the last one as you suggested and it did make a great difference.
