Designed 2 Delight Flutterby Fairy

I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  The first is for the Designed 2 Delight challenge at the Delightful Inspiration blog.  If you'd like to check it out I've listed it with a link under "challenges" at the end of my blog post.

This cute image is called Flutterby Fairy, she was in my e mail inbox Friday morning so I could play along in the Delightful Inspiration challenge again this week, how fun!

She's colored with Copic markers E00, E000, E0000, R02, E70, E71, E74, E77, B41, B45, RV91, RV93, RV95, BG0000, G0000.  The layout was inspired by a card that I made for my Dad years ago that I came across the other day, the papers are from the Basic Grey Kioshi pad with Stampin' Up! Perfect Plum cardstock.  She's printed on Neenah Solar White using a HP Laser printer.  The sentiment was purchased from  Create With TLC.

I also used a couple of my old Stampin' Up! punches, added cream colored brads and a little piece of satin ribbon that was a gift from Ellen Hutson with an order I placed recently.  To make her wings shine I used Stickles Ice, let it dry slightly and covered it with Glossy Accents in case I want to use this for my Operation Write Home cards. 

Here's my inspiration card.
I've been cleaning, sorting and organizing again and came across this Father's Day card I'd made my dad.  I wish I knew what year I made it, he's been gone three years now so it's at least four years old.  Most of the stamps used for it were by Stampin' Up! I'm glad it was given to me after his death, it's a nice reminder of him and wonderful inspiration for a new card!

Enjoy your day!

Sweet little card, Jan. It was nice that you were able to share your creativity with your Dad through cards you gave to him. I bet he was proud of his girl!
