Things With Wings Challenge #21

Hello Ladies and a good Monday morning to everyone. We are having another great challenge here at Paper Creations Ink with a fantastic prize for one lucky person. A $20 gift certificate from our Sponsor's Craft and Create.  I used the digi from Wags n Whiskers titled Fairy Nichola. Isn't she the look of Springtime? the faraway look in her eyes, the wings just begging to take her off into her magical world of blooms and insects.

Pat's Card
 I used copics to color her up in the following recipe:
Wings:  Y000,02,04,06, 08, V0000, 000, 01, 09, 12
Eyes: V01
Dress: YG01, 03, 05, 07, 09
Shoes: YG07, 09
Skin: E000,01, 93, R20
Hair: Y11, 21, E 97,99
Flower: V 04, 06, 09
I also used Stardust stickles, flowers from Michaels, Digi Papers and some pearls from SU.  The ribbon is from my stash and the button is from SU as well.

I distressed the edges of all the paper with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo and mounted it all on some off white cardstock.

So please come join us at Paper Creations Ink, check out the above link, read the challenge rules and send us your creations.

Challenge #20 "Spring Is In The Air Challenge"

Can you smell it? Spring is right around the corner. Here in New Mexico we get to celebrate the coming of Spring with WIND. It's a little early but we have been blessed already with days of 50+ mph wind. I think that the state just constantly moves itself from the west to the east. If the Easter Bunny ever decided to visit he had better carry some pretty heavy eggs with him!!! :0)

Our Sponsor for this challenge is the very talented and really great person, Rick St. Dennis! You can find his etsy store here. I fell in love with the Spring images and am going shopping for more. The prize, the Spring Digi sheet that we used to create all of our cards, and there will be two (2) winners!!!

So everyone, grab your Springtime image and join us for a fantastic and fun challenge. Go to Paper Creations Ink check all the Challenge details out and enter your beautiful creation with us.

I have a tendency to leave my cards pretty simple so I can add whatever I want before I send them out. I colored all these cuties with my copics, and the papers are digi from not sure where. The ribbon is from SU! I used a MS corner punch, along with Stickles for my little snails, oh ya some Crystal Effects for the ducks.

I had so much fun with these images and will be using them for all sorts of different cards. Love the ducks, oh and the snails are to die for :0) The flowers can be used for so many wonderful cards as well as the cats. I am so excited!!!!!
