Baby Fairy Flora

Hi! Hope you are all enjoying your Tuesday. It's been a cold rainy day here in Maine.  What a perfect chance to get a few cards created.  I created this card using this week's sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop. This week's challenge was to use any of the past sketches.  So I used sketch 40.

The colors I used are from this week's color challenge at Colour Create.  This week's challenge was to create a card/project using the colors rose pink/kraft/white.  Also for the kraft challenge at Sweet Stampin Pixies and the pink and brown challenge at Digi Doodle Shops Best.  Oh and I can't forget the use your favorite color combo at Mo's Digital Challenge.

I started with a kraft card base. I cut a piece of gem pink diamond card stock and added it to the top of the card.  I cut a piece of white card stock and embossed it using a dot embossing folder and added it to the bottom of the card.  I added a pink with hearts ribbon across the center. The image I used is Baby Fairy Flora from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I backed the image in gem pink diamond card stock and then again in kraft card stock.  I added the image to the center of the card. I added a pink flower button to the center of a white paper flower.  I added one to each side of the image.  I added crystal stickles to the wings of the fairy.
