The patterned paper is a mag freebie from yonks ago and as soon as I saw this digi I knew this was the paper for it! 

I've used ribbon over the corners and plain pink and orange cardstock for the layering. Added lots of summery paper blossoms and put sparkling rhinestones in the middle of them all. Also used a flip flop charm which is dangling from the 2 pink flowers. I used a clear stamp for the sentiment and a spellies lacy circle die. Added a bit of bling also!

I used some teal/turquoise grosgrain ribbon along the top and added a starfish charm dangling down, I have used glossy accents on the bubbles to give shiny dimension. The sentiment comes with the digi stamp. The waves at the bottom were made using the memory box Splash border die and I added some paper blossoms with dazzling rhinestones in the centre's. Also added some adhesive gemstones around too. The papers and bazzill cardstock are all from my stash.

Simply Betty Facebook Fan Page Challenge - Summer Fairy

Here is my entry for the current challenge over on the Simply Betty Stamps facebook fan page. The challenge was to use Summer Fairy with a background, not patterned paper, stamped or digi merged etc.

Here is my card.

For my background I used Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar distress inks with the distress tool and then sprayed over the whole piece with Crafters Companion Iridescent Glitter Lacquer. I matted the background onto plain pink and blue card to match the copics used to colour her in. Added a pink chiffon ribbon to the spine of the card with a butterfly charm tied into it (not easy to see in the piccy sorry ) and added a couple of roses. Also used Martha Stewart branch punch for the rose leaves and dotted some pearls around the corners. 

Copics used:-  E000, E00, E11, E23, E25, E27, E29, B0000, B00, B02, RV00, RV11, RV52 Eyes - B00, B02, B04  Lips RV23
