New Sweet Pea card





Hi everyone and Happy Friday!! TGIF! :) I'm so glad the weekend is almost here. It's been a crazy week and I'm looking forward to relaxing a bit. Do any of you have any exciting weekend plans?

For my card today, I decided to ink up this gorgeous Sweet Pea image from ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection. This particular image is called Blue Eye Fairy. She was so much fun to color. I inked the image with Memento black ink, stamped it onto PTI white cardstock, and colored it with copics. For the hair, I used E53, E55, and E57. For her dress, I used R85 and R83. Her eyes are B32 and B34. I inked around the image with SU's Bashful Blue ink. Next, I created my card base out of SU cardstock. All design paper is by My Mind's Eye (love this paper company!) :) I added a ribbon and a bow (I was able to tie the double bow using my awesome Bow Easy. I used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added pink rhinestones. I also added a pink rhinestone to the center of her necklace. I added a heart charm (from Michael's) and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for a finishing touch. What do you think?

Thank you all so much for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend.

Big Hugs, Christine :)
