I just received my newest set, In The Moonlight from JustRite, and I am totally in love! I had been wanting this set since it came out and finally got my hands on it, oh this little fairy is just darling! The challenge at the JustRite blog is An Act of Kindness, a Random Act of Kindness card, a gift to tell someone how much you appreciate them or a thank you card for someone that may have bestowed a random act of kindness to you. I was inspired by Tosh's gorgeous circle card this week.
And the Wee Memories challenge #49 this week is ANYTHING Goes! This week's sponsor is My Favorite Things, how exciting! They have those super cute Pure Innocence images, awww!
I love circle cards and have been wanting to try a circle easel card and I am so happy with how it turned out. I made this card for my neighbor, Vicky. She loves to bake and always brings us cookies, muffins, and baklava. She is just the sweetest and I wanted to make her something very special.
The round sentiment on the outside is stamped from a border stamp from the My Garden Borders & Centers set, and both the thank you sentiment and the fairy image are from In The Moonlight, it's one of the new cling sets. I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, then I cut out her out and have her popped up on the round sentiment border. I then stamped her wings a couple of times in white ink onto vellum, heat embossed and attached them, then added a little glitter, all fairies need a little sparkle ;) I glued a very thin border of glitter around the circular sentiment for a little more sparkle. I added a couple of paper flowers, some sponging and a Martha Stewart border punch. Whew, this took me quite awhile, but I think she will like it. Thanks so much for taking a peek! :)
