My 1st Prairie Fairy DT card

Well you'll soon be able to buy Prairie Fairy images (sometime today or tomorrow hopefully!) and Roberta has given the DT some images to play with :o) I've used this gorgeous lion image for my youngest son's birthday card - I can't believe he's going to be 2 on Friday, how did that happen?! I'm not totally happy with my colouring on this one - he's a bit too yellow I think, but I wanted to keep him nice and bright for this card. He's coloured with promarkers, cut out with plain circle nesties and mounted on a nellie snellen circle. The papers are Doodlebug, with coredinations cardstock. Lettering cut with the sizzix 'night & day' alphabet dies - I always forget to use these! I've used a small nellie snellen die for the sentiment label, computer generated sentiment. Added rainbow drops, a button, yellow fibres and card candy to finish.

Sorry there are loads of pictures - I find it really hard to show an easel card properly!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
  • Allsorts - sketch & new or old (new image)
  • Corrosive - use 2 favourite embellishments (hard to choose, but I've used a button & rainbow drops)
  • One Stop Craft - something beginning with 'B' (button, brown black... umm big lion? lol)
  • Pile It On - anything digi and/or anything clear (image & rainbow drops)
  • Charisma Cardz - celebrations

And here's the birthday boy himself, playing in the snow today :o) We've got loads of the stuff!
