Fairy Celebration | Freshly Made Sketches #308

Life has been pretty hectic lately and I haven't been able to join in on some of my favourite challenge sites as often as I'd like to.

While recently creating a birthday card for one of my nieces, I found I was needing some help with my card layout (as a fairly large project I am currently working on has way too many ideas swirling around in my head). So I went searching for a sketch challenge, and fell in love with this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #308

Here is my card:

In the excitement of Stampin' Up! bringing back alcohol markers later in the year, I've pulled out my retired Blendabilities recently and have been having a play. My fairy image (from the Fairy Celebrations set) has been coloured using my Blendabilities markers.

The colour scheme of my card is Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Whisper White.

I found an old piece of Rich Razzleberry Core'dinations cardstock, which I embossed with my newly purchased Garden Trellis embossing folder. I then lightly sanded the raised sections. (The Core'dinations cardstock could easily be replaced with Rich Razzleberry cardstock)

I have used a couple of different framelit/thinlits for the components of my card - Stitched Shapes, Flourish (for my leaf) & Seasonal Layers (for my blossom).

My sentiment also comes from the Fairy Celebrations stamp set.

I really hope my niece likes her card and I hope you do too :)
