Sketch Saturday #108: Spring Fairy

Hey everyone!

This week over at Sketch Saturday we have another fab sketch by the amazing Jo, and this week we are being sponsored by Digital Delights!

As you can see, I turned this wonderful sketch 180 degrees and used a TGF digi stamp (Spring Fairy) that I won a while back but haven't used before now!  I'm not particularly happy with a few elements of this card and I think the paper is a bit too busy, but hey ho, it's made now!  Note to self: don't use Stickles with digi images that are printed using our old HP5552 inkjet printer as it makes the ink run (as it has done on the fairy wings, grrr!).

[I'd be interested to know if the colours of this card appear vibrant or drab and grey, as when I view this card using our HP desktop PC it looks 'correct', but when I view it using our Samsung laptop, it looks really drab!]

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Crazy 4 Challenges C4C42 - Paper Flowers
2. Sentimental Sundays - Summertime
3. Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge #1 - Nice and Girly
4. ASFOS Challenge #108 - Enjoying the Sunshine
5. PaperPlay Challenge Week 24 - Something Old I have had this MME paper since it was first released, but haven't used it until today.
6. Stamp Something - Something Summer  Although my digi stamp is called 'Spring Fairy' I think my card is very summery! :o)
7. Papertake Weekly -Ice Cream Flavours I've gone for Choco Mint with Raspberry Ripple, and to prove this is an actual flavour, here's a pic...

Have a fab weekend folks, whatever you're doing!  I'm off to find my lost mojo.....

Thanks for popping by!
