A Faerie For You!!

Happy Monday to you!!

I hope you are all doing well. I am suffering from the sinus junk that is kicking some serious tail all over the place. My hubby is getting over his and Brittany is trying. I just seem to keep suffering. Uuuuugggggghhhhhh!!!!

Anyway, I wanted to share a card with you today using the beautiful Sassafras from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. Susana has a fabulous store and if you haven't been over there you should put your slippers on and click on over!! Not only does she have a fabulous selection of products, she has a beautiful and unique selection of high quality rubber stamps. Her customer service is wonderful too!! Fast shipping!! That is very important to me because I can't wait to smell fresh rubber in my mailbox!!! Can you??
Here's my card (please excuse the finger in my picture):


Doesn't she make you smile?? I love this image! I used some beautiful Daisy Bucket paper (Love it) and colored Sassafras in with my Copics. I used my Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers folder to emboss my green cardstock and Martha Stewart photo corners and pearls on the corners. I used a sketch from Magnolia-licious. I used my nesties to cut out my image and the scalloped layer.



I chalked around her with blue chalk for emphasis. I used Shimmerz on her wings, socks and flowers in her hair although my camera refuses to show you.


I used my Martha Stewart Heart punch for the inside of my card and another strip of that fabby paper. I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it. Thanks for coming by my blog. It means a lot to me that you took time to visit, so be sure to leave a comment so I know you were here.

Come back tomorrow. I'll have something wonderful for you to see!

Recipe:
Stamp: Sassafras
Paper: Daisy Bucket
