Funky Fairy's Challenge : 1st DT card :-)

Hi everyone, would you believe it I had a power cut this morning just as I was in the middle of posting this ! I had just launched the Simon Says Challenge blog and then puff, out went the lights !!

Anyway, these are my 1st cretions as a fully fledged Funky Fairy :-) I have been wearing Amy's carnival wings all week ha ha ( might show y'all a piccy later ha ha). The theme this week is GREEN
I used the Dots are Distressing and It's so Distressing papers that I downloaded quite a while ago and have used them over and over again, I love em. They are available to download fron the Funky Fairy Papercrafts online store.

I also used a download from the Digital Stamp Oasis online store for the card's main image. The image on the post it note holder is from the Daisy and Dandelion do crafts set.
I inked all the edges with distressed ink, I used a little bit of ribbon from my messy draw and a few green flat backed pearls from papermania. The sentiment is also from the Digital Stamp Oasis, I used a SU hardware thing ( what're they called ) and used SU brads to fix.

I am offering the post it note holder and a Parker pen to an entrant into the challenge, so if you would like it you have to enter ! To be in with a chance of winning the Funky Fairy Challenge you cannot link it with other challenges tho !

Today is also the day my time as a DT for the Digital Stamp Oasis officially starts :-) Though I have been using the gorgeous images for a few days now, i just love em :-)

Thanks for looking and I really appreciate your comments, so please leave me one :-)

Simon Says 1st Challenge :-)

This is my card for the 1st ever Simon Says Challenge
:-) I am so excited about this new challenge and hope you will all join in the fun :-) Heidi and Jason the owners of have offered a very generous prize to one lucky entrant in the challenge so hop on over there for more details :-)
The theme for our 1st week is Yellow and Green, Heidi's favourite colours.
I used the Simon Says Clear Stamps Dream PARIS ROME NEW YORK Exclusive set.
I followed the sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge for this card, they have a lovely prize on offer too this week :-)
I the basic grey sugared papers I used were a gift from Heidi :-) Thanks darlin :-) They worked perfectly with the sketch as there were lots of circles and the flowers did the job perfectly, I just added a few amber coloured gems to a few of them :-) The image and Paris text were stamped using Brilliance black ink, no colouring !! easy !! :-) I used a Tim Holtz grungeboard die cut shape. I wanted to use the words 'Springtime in' on this but didn't want to write it myself and make a mess of it so I printed it on the computer !! I didn't think it would work actually and was a bit worried it would get stuck but it didn't !! the ink smudged a bit though but that was brill !! it distressed itself to match the Eiffel Tower image yay !! I distressed it even further with Tim Holtz distress ink pad I used the shabby shutters one. The brads are doodlebug sugared ones and the circles were cut out using my nestabilities.
Everything I used on this card are available in the Simon Says Stamp store :-)
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
