Diamonds are a girl's best friend (and a freebie!)

Woo Hoo, I've got some exciting news for you today.  Not only have I been invited to be a Guest Designer for One Stop Craft Challenge Blog for the week, but I've also been invited to join them as a full time DT member!!!    Double Woo Hoo !!!  This calls for a celebration, so I'm giving away another freebie today (see below)!

The theme this week is 'Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend', so I interpreted this to be a girlie card with bling.  Now, as I'm someone who likes cute and pink girlie images covered in sparkles, you can probably imagine how disappointed I was with this theme (NOT !!!).  Well, I'd better get back on track to the card I've made, which uses a beautiful little Stamp Fairy image called Patsy Tooth Fairy (except I cut out the tooth part which was hanging from the cloud to leave just the fairy part!).

I've used my Promarkers to colour her in pinks, added glitter to her wings and hair bow, and used 'fluffy stuff' to create a fluffy cloud texture.  I had bought the fluffy stuff at Christmas to put on snow scenes, and after Christmas I didn't think I'd use it again until I start making 2011's Christmas cards later in the year, but it is perfect for clouds too, and gives loads of texture. 

The papers are from Robyn's Fetish Coney Island Summer range, and I've used my new lacey circles nesties (of course!) for both the image and the sentiment.  The sentiment is one I created especially for this card, which is going to be for my M-I-L.  However, if you want to have it too, then I'm happy to share it as another freebie (see below).


I've finished my card off with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and of course my 'diamonds' which are lovely little self adhesive silver gems that look like little diamonds (if only they were!), and I've blinged the card up to the max with them to give loads of extra sparkle!  Hope my M-I-L likes my Patsy Fairy card!


Please pop on over to the One Stop Craft Challenge to see what the other DT members have created for you to see, and hope you join in with the 'Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend' challenge this week.  Most of all, have fun!

As promised, if you would like a copy of the sentiment, then all I ask is that you respect the following requests:
  • Become a follower (if you're not already) so you'll see new freebies that I add in future,
  • Leave a comment on this post to let me know you've downloaded it, so I know it is worthwhile in doing more freebies,
  • Finally, please don't share it directly with others, but instead if anyone asks you to share, I'd be delighted if you point them here to collect it themselves.
To download the sentiment, click on the image to open up a full size version, then right-click and select 'Save picture as' and save it onto your computer.

I've also been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting
