Sketch & Spring at Stamp Fairy

Woo-hoo I'm so excited!  After completing my guest designer spot for March, I've now been invited to join in as a full time teamie on Stamp Fairy Challenge blog.  I'm really happy because Stamp Fairy images are just gorgeous and the DT members are such lovely and talented girls.  I'm looking forward to getting to know them better.

To celebrate, I've created this card which also uses some really pretty digi papers I've found from Summertime Designs that I just had to use as soon as I got them!   For this card I've used Patsy EasterEggs from Stamp Fairy; she's so pretty in her pink dress and cute bunny ears, and I've followed the sketch from this week's Stamp Fairy Challenge.

The cute little fence in the background is from MelJen.  I thought the papers were Spring-like too, so they go well together. I didn't want much else on the card as the paper is quite 'busy', so went for a white embossed (Swiss Dots) background for the image which itself is framed by a circle lacey nestie.  I've stamped the image twice and cut & layered the second image on sticky foam pads.  Not really sure it shows as 3D in the photo, but it is!!  Those tiny little pink gems were a real pain to stick on.  There is so little glue needed as they're so small, but then the middle one kept falling off.  I put a bit more glue on and then it squidged out the sides of the gem, but it dries clear so should be ok (fingers crossed!)

As you'll see, I've even got my own official StampFairy watermark that Gerda's given me, which is so cute.  Don't laugh, but I had to google some instructions on how to insert it, and then I didn't have any software that would put it onto my photo so had to download a tool (luckily a freebie)!  Anyway, I got there in the end (I think!)

I hope you like my Patsy EasterEgg card, and I look forward to see lots of you joining in with the Stamp Fairy challenges.  Please pop on over to the challenge blog to see the fab designs by the other talented members of the DT and enter our sketch and spring challenge.  Don't forget that in order to qualify for the prize, you must use a Stamp Fairy image.  For those of you who like to try before you buy, there are some freebie ones if you check out the site, but I can guarantee that you'll fall in love with some of the other designs.  I know I have!
I've also been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting

Hi Netty - Thank you so much again for your sweet words! I really did love meeting you and having the chance to create with you last month. Leaving the team is so hard..and has been a very difficult thing for me.

I had planned to write a personal post to all the DT members in our private group this morning, sadly I no longer have any access!!

Please know I wish so much things had been different!
