1 Card - 5 Challenges (Edited) to include Flutter By Wednesday Challenge

WHOO HOO, I'm finally back to crafting and think some of my mojo has returned.  Must be the news toys I received this week that got me motivated  I know I've sure missed playing in the craftroom and visiting with you all.  This card is for the following challenges:

Emerald Faerie Garden - Lots of Bling - Monthly Challenge
Anything Goes - Masking
Stamp with Fun - In The Garden
There's Magic In The Air - Easel Card
Fluttery By Wednesday - Open - Must use Butterly, Fairy, or Angel

Apology to Nina for not using a PCC image and promise next time I enter to use one.  Just hadn't played for awhile and wanted to make sure I finally got something in and the easel challenge was perfect for this card.

I've shown you the inside bottom of the easel separately so you can actually see it.  The picture of the easel card itself did not turn out as I had hoped but probably because it's dark and I had to take it inside.

Card Deets:
  • Ebony Digi from Emerald Faerie Garden
  • Go Kreate XXL Frames - Frilly #2 Square
  • Marianne Dies LR0150 and LR0151
  • Cherry Lynn Victoria Picket Fence
  • DP: Sweet Fairy Collection by Prima, Old Olive SU and Perfect Plum SU
  • Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers
  • Stickles
  • Flower Soft
  • Colored with Copics
That's it from me for tonight folks, I'll be back soon with another card for Chrissy's and Elizabeth's Bells Monthly Challenges.  Since I'm always late getting any cards made or posted for monthly challenge blogs I decided to do those first this month.  I hope you've enjoyed your visit and have the time to leave me a comment so I can hop on over and see what's new with you.
"Hugs" Carol (Granny)

Carol your mojo has returned in full living and creative colour and style. Your Emerald Faerie card is stunning!! I like the way that you've been able to print out and colour the one little cutie stamp 3 times and each one looks different. Beautiful little garden in front of the picket fence and your embellishment leaves behind the stamps are perfect. Wonderful background colours too. I'm so pleased to see one of your creations again as I've missed your inspiring talent. Love and Friendship. Vic
