Bling it up at Karen's Doodles!!!!

In case you missed my post, I have great pleasure in telling you that I was asked to be the July Guest Designer for Karen's Doodles, (US). I accepted in a flash! Karen's Doodles' digi and rubber stamps are well known and a delight to work with.
Well for my first card for this month, I've used a beautiful image to 'BLING IT UP' called 'Fairy fun'.

It's always lovely to bling a card up and with an image as pretty as this one, It was a real treat!
I re-sized and mirror imaged the fairy to make it kind of 'mother and daughter', or maybe little girl and her doll?
I've used Stickles on their wings and on their 'tutus'!  I LOVE Stickles. The base card is Bazzil Bling. It had to be, didn't it! LOL
The DP and glittery brads are by Papermania's capsule collection. The embossed panel was made with a Sizzix embossing folder and I chalked the leaves and placed a gem on each of the larger flowers, with a row of gems along the bottom for balance.
I also placed a gem on the big girl's shoes. Coloured with Copics and finished with a stamp that I think, says it all.
Please head on over to Karen's Doodles and play along. We all love an excuse to dress up and bling it up don't we! Winner's are chosen with and you must use a Karen's Doodles image.

What a sweet card, I love green! And the new tune - from a GERMAN band! It is quite modern, but do you know, this song is from 1989? Eather way, it is nice to listen to...

Your card is so cute. The green is so refreshing. Your colouring is the best.


Love your card and the colors. It's so neat the way you used the stamp. Going to have to try and play with that idea. Too cute!
