Bianca Says "I DO" at For Fun

A BIG Thanks to our sponsor this week - Fairy Knoll - A place where fairies fly and dreams come alive. Fairy Knoll offers digital stamps filled with fantasy and magic ~ we hope you can visit them soon.
The Design Team are really excited to share some of their fantastic cards with you at For Fun and give you the opportunity to be chosen for not one or two, but three (3) of their favorite images from Fairy Knoll. 
We sure hope you will be able to play along with us this week.  All you need to do to win is create a card using the following sketch challenge and post it via Mr. Linky at For Fun.

Here is the following sketch challenge for this weeks challenge, created by Helen at For Fun Challenges. After all, who doesn't love a sketch challenge? For me, it takes the guess work out of what I'm going to do and all I have to do is pick out the paper and the image, then have fun seeing what I can do with it......easy peasy since I never vary too far from the sketch.

This beautiful image is "Bianca". I chose the sentiment "I DO" (cut out on the Cricket - Thanks Diana) because I thought the position of her hand indicated she was showing off a ring, but if she wasn't, then I wanted her to be. Since I didn't have a small enough gem to add I added a dot of Diamond Stickles (not sure it's showing up in this photo) to her ring finger.  After I finished the card I realized it probably should have said "I WILL"
but by then it was too late....sighs
  • DP- DCWV "Once Upon A Time", CM Gold Metallic, left over merlot paper from my grandson's wedding invitations and programs

  • The Merlot paper is from Paper Temptress and is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder but I threw away the package it came in and don't remember the name of it....DUH  I must be getting old!

  • Metallic gold was cut with Spellbinder's round scalloped ovals and edged in Gold Stickles. 

  • The Tiara was done in French Lila Ultrafine Glitter from Barbara Twombley with the smallest gem I had placed in the top.

  • Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts

  • Copics were used to color the image....sorry! I forgot to write them down.
Please hop on over to For Fun to see what the rest of the design team have created with Fairy Knoll digi's, just for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have the time to leave me a much appreciated comment,
and if you do, I'll be over to visit real soon.
"Hugs" Granny (Carol)

Way to go hun with using one of your favourite colours, right down to the purple lippy. I really like the papers they are sort of muted and they've got that bling you like. *Hugs*
