I created this card back in March for a Free For All Challenge on Splitcoast and a challenge on Mo’s  Digital Challenge blog. Mo’s challenge was to use a baby image, the Free For All Challenge was to create something St. Patrick inspired (greens, good luck charms).

I printed Baby Fairy Flora out on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut her out with Classic Circle Nestabilities die. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Bow: R20, R21, R22, Flowers: Y11, Y13, Y15, Leaves: YG01, YG03, YG17, Basket: E30, E31, E33, Background: BG0000, BG000, BG01, Ground: T0, T1, T3). The image was layered on a piece of Black cardstock, cut and embossed with Blossom Nestabilities dies. The edges of the image layer were paper pierced. A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with big scalloped circle Nestabilities and airbrushed with Copic Marker YR15.

A 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Springtime Echo Park paper was adhered over a 4 1/2″ square of Little Boy Echo Park paper. A 4 1/2″ wide strip of White cardstock was cut and embossed with the Lattice Borderabilities die and adhered underneath the horizontal strip. The layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of black cardstock. May Arts Gingham Ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip and topped with a big Recollection brad.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 5″ x 10″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock folded in half. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Clearly Sentimental about you. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of  Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities dies. The inner part of the oval was colored with Copic Markers BG0000 and BG000. It was adhered to the lower right of the image. Black Kaisercraft Rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
