Simply Fairytale


Good evening peeps....actually I should say good morning as its nearly 1 0'clock in the morning lol. I've been on doing DT work & I really fancied a play just for fun & a challenge I havnt done one for over a week. So I got my lappy & looked for a sketch & found the one on Sugar Bowl. I thought well I've not played with a sugar nellie for a while maybe I'll ink up one of the sassy's that are still uninked.......wrong!!!
I made the card 1st then chose the image where normally I will colour the image & then do the card around that, I just find it easier that way & I know I will have papers to match.
So when the card was done this was the best sassy for the job lol.
I also went with the theme cus the pic inspiration is so beautiful....I'm not one for blues in the home I have never had so much as a blue wall anywhere in my home lol.....I find it a cold colour brrrrr.......lol.
Anyway here is my card.......
This is the beautiful 'Fairytale' from the Simply Sassy range......have you seen the new ones that are getting released I will have the alarm set on my internet lol. This is still my all time fave sassy tho.....I would love to see one with just the face & flowing hair cus I love them sort of images.....I have quite a few of them!!

I forgot to take a close-up of her I'm afraid.




I followed the sketch for the inside as well so its the same except it has a blank space for the message.
She is coloured with Copics & PM's, mainly copics tho. The papers are the gorgeous new Prima 'Botanical' which are just the most beautiful papers ever!!! The flowers & papers are from Crafty Emma's. Gems & doily from my stash. Lace & 2 slim white flowers are from Wild Orchid. All brown A4 card is from Papermill Direct. The punched trim at the bottom of the image is the 'French Lillies' border die from WOJ. I distressed all papers with my stressy tool & inked the edges with 'Weathered Wood' distress ink, I also inked the lillie border in it & the cut out corners as well. The flowers were also edged with the ink & then lace stickles added.
Well I'm gonna drag hubby off his Ipad & go to bed Natty is still awake but the baby monitor is on so if she starts I will just have to get back up!! Hopefully I wont take much rocking tonight lol.
Thank you so soooo much for all your sweet lovely comments you leave for me you really do make my day, actually my week.....you are all awesome!!
Thank you for stopping by & sparing the time to see my card see you soonies my lovely friends.
Tatty bye.
