Paper Sundaes Challenge - 25 April 2010

When I first saw the challenge for Paper Sundaes Challenge this week I thought OK.  That soon changed when I decided to use a 6x6 card but I got there in the end.  The challenge this week is "Build a Paper Sundae - 3 patterned papers, 2 different cardstock and 1 flower".  This kind of challenge, when I am using up paper and bits-and-pieces of paper/cardstock is ideal.  The backing papers are Daisy and Dandelion which I've had since they first came out in a Docrafts Goody Bag.  I have teamed it up with some purple holographic card from Create and Craft and some DCWV purple metallic card but both were only smallish pieces that I just managed to use.  The image is a gorgeous fairy from the talented Prairie Fairy.  She has been coloured in with Promarkers.  I have distressed the edges of the paper and image with a purple Versa Magic ink pad - I love Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Pads but I still love my loyal and faithful Versamagic ink pads as they first got me into distressing.  The card is finished off with a ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop that I have edged in yellow and purple Promarkers, a glittery flower sticker and some ribbon from Create and Craft.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Spoon Full of Sugar - Happy Birthday
Crafty Creations - Distressing
Saturday Challenge - Distressing
Prairie Fairy - Distressing
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Something girly
Craft Your Passion - Purple and Yellow
Creative Card Crew - Happy Birthday
Simon Says - Things with Wings.
