Good Friday morning!  Wow, it's been a busy week, and although I have gotten a ton accomplished this week, it has not been here on my blog or with commenting, so I am working on a little "blog catching up" today. 

Today is our NEW CHALLENGE at FAIRY KNOLL BLOG and our challenge today is SPARKLE!  I frequently add sparkle to my projects, so this one was great fun for me.  I hope you will come play along with us.  For our challenges, you are not required to use a FAIRY KNOLL image, but it would be awesome if you did!  You can pick up a FREEBIE in the FAIRY KNOLL SHOP as well as any of Brandi's other FANTASTIC images.  Hope you will check it out:)

For my card today, I chose "Caroling Elf" as my image.  This is one of my very favorite FAIRY KNOLL images because it is so beautiful and just has a very peaceful quality to it.

I have colored the image with Copics and Atyou Spicas, used Twinkling water paint around the outside of the doorway, a la mode and stickles glitter glue used for doorway and ground.  Flowers are Prima.  Sentiment is from C.C. Designs, cut with Nesties and embellished with pearl from e. by Prima.  Papers are TAC purple, vellum white and SU silver.  The white and silver are embossed with different Sizzix dies.  Image and background cut with Nellie's dies.  Lace is from SU.  I am very pleased with how this turned out - I hope you like it!!
