Happy Birthday!

** Top 3 Pick at Come and Get It Challenges! **

Hi everyone! I'm here this morning to share my DT inspiration project for this week's Inky Impressions Challenge, IIC #141 - Something New. Come play with us! We want to see your projects created with something new... and you have to tell us what it is! ;)

I used the adorable Inky Impressions Fairy Sitting on Clothespin digi for my birthday card. The digi is new (I purchased it for this challenge), I used my new Zutter Bow It All bow maker to make a triple loop bow, and I created some new flowers for embellishments. I used some awesome papers from a matstack that I bought several years ago. I can't believe I haven't used them up because I just love them!

This fairy is just the cutest! She has some sparkle on her tiny little wings that you can't see too well in the photo. I cut her with a pretty shaped die and matted all the elements on dark purple cardstock. My bow-making skills are improving with my new bow maker - I'm lovin' this triple loop bow!

Both the front and inside sentiments are computer generated, printed in purple.

I'd love to enter this sweet little fairy birthday card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury ivory cardstock; DCWV Latte matstack; Cricut Purples & Pinks cardstock
  • Inky Impressions Fairy Sitting on Clothespin digital image
  • Copics: E00/07/11/33/35/37/51, Y17, R00/85, C3, YG63/99, BV02/08/13/17
  • Sakura Stardust pen
  • Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and Ribbon Banners dies
  • Sizzix 3-D Flowers die
