Emerald Fairies and Artful Inkings are debuting as a Sponsors at Southern Girls Challenge! Welcome!

 This great new sponsor for SGC is named Emerald Fairies and they have so many cute pixies it just puts a smile on your face to work with them!  The one that I'm using is called "Jewel" and she fits right into the theme at Southern Girls Challenge this time--Stripes!
I'm using an Outer Stair Step Card blank from The Paper Cut in a very springlike color, Sour Apple.  With this being pre-scored, it takes all the measurement and folding hassles out of your hands!  Easy, Peasy!  On the back level, I used a fence die cut and a TH grass dc and then multicolored small prima flowers to create an outdoor scene.  The design paper I used was 2 sided so I used both as accent papers.  The digital image was colored in copics and then I used diamond Stickles on the wings for some shimmer.  I used my computer to create the sentiment and then mounted it on some complimentary green cardstock.  Here at Southern Girls, we have a new challenge every 3 weeks with different, awesome sponsors.  Come and place your entries and join in the fun!

And additional card was needed so I quickly chose a cute image with a guitar, as my husband sells guitars in our shop in his spare time!  This image was very easy to color and shade so that made me happy!  I basically used some masculine striped paper and musical paper from my stash...sad but I could probably furnish a shop with my paper addiction.  I made some loops from a roll of satin ribbon and added them to the matted image.  Stamped with a Studio G "Big Hugs" stamp on the front and Hero Arts stamp with happy Birthday image.  Think I've got several uses for this card!
