Hello Crafty Friends,
There's a new challenge starting today at
Love To Craft Challenge Blog
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes
Here's my inspiration card for this challenge...
Here's what I used...
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
Prima Marketing Distressing Tool
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon - won gift cert from Jo’s Scrap Shack celebration
Memento Dew Drop 'Rich Cocoa' Ink Pad  
We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Stamping Tool
Unbranded Clear Stamps
Bow Making Tool
Darice 'Tiny Star' Sequins
LolliZ White Gel Pen and Flowers
Navy/Purple Cardstock Paper
The beautiful paper I stamped on was made and given to me in the 'blog candy' from Carolina Cards by Mary H...I so wish you could see this paper in person, it is gorgeous, as it shimmers and shines with so many different colors.

Here's what I did...
Using the stamping tool, I placed the stamps where I wanted them and stamped the images and text onto the paper. Then I used colored pencils to create ground and grass. After making the card with navy colored paper, I cut a piece of purple paper to fit the center of it. I then used the distressing tool around the card, the purple paper and the image. Next I taped the image in the center of the purple paper then taped it in the center of the card. Then I glued star sequins over the larger star images, two on each side and middle, on the top part of the card. Next I used a white gel pen to add highlights on the fairy's wings, the mushrooms and in the center of all the stars. I made the bow, then glued it and the flowers onto the bottom left side of the card. Then I curled the flower stems and glued them in with the flowers.
I hope you like my DT card and it gives you some inspiration. 
Come on and join us in the fun! 
Happy Crafty Hugs,
