Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge

Good afternoon

Looks like summer has returned to Norfolk today :o)  A few weeks ago I bought this sweet Crafters Companion Flower Fairy stamp so decided to use it for the new Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge which is a fab sketch and the optional theme of 'floral'.  You don't have to use a Crafters Companion image but you must use an image from a CD/stamp range sold on the website (that includes ALL stamps not just Crafters Companion). This stamp was a little too big for my normal 6 x 6 cards so decided to make an 8 x 8 card for my MIL's birthday in July.  I really enjoyed colouring this image so decided to also use it on the inside of the card. 

Image ~ CC Flower Fairy 'Heliotrope' coloured with Copics
Papers ~ K&Co
Roses ~ Wild Orchid Crafts
Purple flowers ~ Warehouse Clearance shop
Butterflies ~ Cut from the K&Co paper
Pearls ~ The Hobby House
Spray pearls ~ Ebay
Sentiment ~ Created on the PC


I am also entering this card into the following challenges

One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Swirls and Pearls
Totally Gorjuss ~ Wings
Cooking it up with Katie ~ Wing it you Pink Petal!
(Use wings, petals and pink)
ASFOS ~ Celebration Card
Rosie-D's ~ Fairytales

Happy Crafting!

Lisa this card is absolutely fabulous! It gave me goose pimples looking at it - and that was before I scrolled down and saw the inside!!! You've got the colouring spot on to the original, and I just love those papers you've used to compliment! Thank you for being a guest designer this month!
