Joy & Wonder...

Hello, hello!

I'm excited to have a card for the Flutter By challenge today. Once I start making Christmas cards there aren't as many opportunities to have a fairy or butterfly on them but I recently found this cute digi stamp from Sugar Nellie so I decided to play along. She is called Elf Made Magic and I think she is too cute for words. While I wish she was an actual rubber stamp I will admit that it was nice to not wait a couple weeks to have her arrive in the mail. :)

This week's challenge is to use the color brown on your card so I searched out the MME Lost & Found paper pad from last year because I love the color combo in it which includes a very dark brown. Of course I colored her up to match and even added a touch of gold to the mix for good measure. I also stamped in a little village scene to help ground her in the foreground. Perfect Pearls substituted for a gentle snowfall and I finished off the card design with some strips of paper that I trimmed into pennants and an old epoxy brad from my stash. 

Well I guess I should go do the hair and makeup thing before heading off to work. 
TTFN!

Hi Amy, thanks for all your sweet comments today. They made my day and Madison's as well. :O) I love this card. She is just so adorable and I have these papers. Some of my all time favorites! Love your little button and twine with the flag thing you have going on. I just think it makes your card look so decorative without overpowering your stamped image. Really really cute card my friend. Hugs Lisa
