A Trio Of Cards

I love this sweet image from Bugaboo named Tooth Fairy Sleeping and created a cardstock placard that features the little cutie, stars, and a vellum envelope to hold the tooth bounty! It meant to be leaned against a bedside table lamp or bureau top so that the lucky recipient doesn’t risk losing the new cash in the blankets! I colored the winged cutie with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The “Believe” sentiment is a digi from Eureka Stamps that you can find HERE. I'm entering this card into several challenges including the We Craft Cards Monday TicTacToeChallenge- first column: Die Cuts,  Metallic and Animal or Bird (I googled and fairies are considered “Mythical Creatures” and creatures are animals, right?!)

This is my final entry into the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop features a wonderful image from Little Blue Button named Coffee Love. I colored the pretty miss with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The sentiment, found on a Her View From  Home FB posting, is computer generated. (I laugh every time I read it! My husband guffawed when I shared my card with him. So fun!)  The layout was drawn from the current Bugaboo Stella Says Sketch Challenge. I am also entering it into several other challenges include Simon Says Wednesday “Thinking of You” (because I do think about cake a lot!), and Outlawz Tuesday color challenge (I used several of the yummy rich colors in my card.)

My final card for this posting highlights a free Merry Christmas sentiment from Desert Diva (there are three free versions from which to pick.)  The pretty ornament is from a Little Blue Button digi set named "Christmas Joy."  I colored it with a few red Spectrum Noir markers, added highlights with a white gel pen, and added a rhinestone center. Finish it off with plaid Christmas paper, a bit of green embroidery floss tied into a bow and some gold thread to hang it from the sentiment… and tada!
