Well, after taking a couple of months off from challenges to make signs to sell at our County Fair it felt good to get back into the swing of things. I couldn't think of a better place to start then the Emerald Faerie Garden - Challenge #9 Pearls. Check out the challenge blog at: http://emeraldfaeries.blogspot.com/
I used one of their new digi's "Isabella" and a sentiment stamp from rubbernecker.com. Every day is certainly a new day - a new chance at a new beginning - Since my kids were little I would wake them up by saying "Wake Up.. Rise and Shine...Time to Start A New Day"... some day they will get what that means and why its important to believe in the magic of that sentiment! For now they just respond with
"whatever mom!" lol.
I used my copics to color Isabella, some scrap papers with an olive theme and my new Forest Moss Tim Holtz Distress Pad for the edges of the card, the image and the sentiment. Both the image and the sentiment were cut out using my spellbinders. And to meet the theme of the challenge... 3 big pearl brads with silver edging! I'm back! :)
