Die Cut Dreams DT Call.

Die Cut Dreams challenge blog are having a DT call. They are looking for two people to join their team. The call is open until midnight on Friday 25th September and the new team will be announced on Sunday evening 27th September. You have to make a "pink" card or project and post it on your blog with a link to Die Cut Dreams challenge blog and then leave a comment over on Die Cut Dreams with a link to your work. If you go over to http://diecutdreams.blogspot.com/you can read all the details of what is involved.

As you can see from the fact that the DT call ends tomorrow I was not sure about trying for the DT. But hey nothing to lose and I do like pink lol! I did think about trying it last week but with pressure of work I just didn't have the time. So I have been faffing about all morning trying to get it done.

I used the lovely sketch from http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/ and DP from DCWV. I used Promarkers, including some of the new ones, to colour this lovely Christmas Manga fairy from Sugar Nellies. Isn't she cute? I used my Martha Stewart embossed snowflake edge punch on some of the DP. I sewed round the edges of the rest of the DP. I went over the fairy's wing and the star on her wand with a Sakura clear glitter gel pen. The snowflakes were cut out using a Sizzix die for the larger one and a punch for the other two and then I edged them with a Promarker pen to match the fairy and put them in place with raised glue dots. Since they are cut out from white glitter card they have turned out a different colour!!I finished off with some brads and ribbon from my stash.

I love this fairy, she is so easy to colour. I'm not really one for using fairies a lot but this one is sweet without being too sickly! Hope you like my card and wish me luck with the DT call. I'm not that hopeful but maybe one day I will be lucky enogh to join a DT, you never know.

I'm off now to see what I can do before it is time to feed and walk the dogs and finish making our tea. It's been lovely here, hope it's been nice where you are.
