Plain and Simple Fairy Card

I am on a roll now.
I have had a right royal play with this card. I challenged myself to use just one colour, plus the stamped image. What do you think? So very different to the cards I normally make. Edward my youngest son has been at home today and passed the comment. Mmmm! Not sure what that means, but I thought it was better not to ask.

Blank 8" white card
12" sheet of white card
Stamped image is by Creative Expressions "Fairy 2"
Memento Tuxedo Black
Promarkers ivory, primrose, pale pink, pastel blue, meadow green and cool grey 1
Cuttlebug embossing folders Swiss dots and Debs devine
Magnolia Doohickey Tilda lace die
Nestabiliities labels one die
White ribbon from my stash
I am going to enter this card into two craft challenges, the first being Creative Belli. Their challenge is to make a card for a child or to have a child's image on the card. I just love the this toddler fairy image I used; it makes beautiful cards. The design team have made some stunning cards. Each member has made something very different, from very modern, bright and bold right through to vintage. Go on pop over and take a peek, I think you may be tempted to join in.
The next is Creative Expressions. On the Creative Expressions website, they have a card of the month competition. April's theme is to make a clean and simple card. They want to see stylish and uncomplicated designs that aren't overly embellished. Fingers crossed I have fulfilled the brief. I love the stamps they make, my next purchase will be one of Sam pools steam punk stamps. If this has tempted you to join in pop over to their site, where you will find links to all of there designers blogs and entry's can be emailed to ryan@creative-expressions.uk.com

I hope you like this card, catch up real soon, crafty hugs Julie-Ann x

I have been looking at this card I made and there is something missing! I have changed it and added a sentiment and am loads happier with it. What do you think ?
