Fairy Fun Friday- DT - Punch It !!

This week at FFF we are asking you to use your punches.


I have tried to incorporate a few different punches into my card.
I used my border punch on the back pink paper, my Fiskars corner punch on the papers behind Helen- DH found this punch for me at Micheals (it is a 3 in 1), my SU tag punch for the sentiment, & my SU butterfly punch for the butterflies of course!

I have used the image Helen the Hippo from Prairie Fairy Designs. She comes with her hubby Norm - both of which are created after the Prairie Fairy Queens parents. They are also know as "Grandma & Grandpa 'cross the street" [to my kids]n as they live, literally, across the street.

I colored Helen with watercolor pencils, baby oil & blending stumps.
I added some blingy ribbon sporadically to the card with a little ruffle at the bottom left side & I added stickles to the paper edge. A pearl on her crown and a pin in the flower finish off my card for any occassion!

Come on down and punch it up a notch at FFF this week. Take a look at the DT members inspiration & use it for a chance to win some Prairie Fairy images for yourself!

Challenges for my card:
Flutterby Wednesday- sparkle, DP & 3 gems (pearls ok?)
Aud Sentiments- anything goes
Creative Card Crew- sparkle & shine
The Pink Elephant- ribbons & sparkles
Stamp Something- use a digital image
Pixie Dust Studio- go crazy with polkadots

Don't forget my candy until Sept. 26!! 

And don't forget about the Fussy & Fancy Sketch Challenge going on for one more week!
