I always wanted a sister. Well...ok. Not really. I had (short) periods in my life where I would have liked to have a sister or brother, but most of the time I was extremely happy being an only child. But I have a few friends that I consider sisters of my heart, so those are the ones I was thinking of when I created tonight's card.
Before I show you my creations, you should know that I was inspired by the Midnight Madness sketch #109. I just love their sketches, and am so happy to have fit one in on time. =) Here are the sketches. You could choose either the fancy, the simple, or somewhere in between. (Guess which one I chose! lol)
Ok, so here's my creation.
A straight on shot of the front:
And a shot of the inside:
This was my first attempt at a twisted easel card, and I'm pretty happy with the results! I figured out about half way through that I probably should have made the card larger to fit everything I wanted on there....but it still turned out alright. =)
Both the fairy image and the flower corner image are from digistamps 4 joy. I just love them! I've been itching to use the fairy friends stamp since I got it. The fairy image was colored with Copics, and then Stickles were added to the wings. The flower corner images were colored with Spica markers. The sentiment was printed out in word, then colored with Distress Ink in Milled Lavender. DPs are from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. The lace with pearls was also colored with Milled Lavender. Flowers are from Hero Arts and were covered with Stickles, then spritzed with shimmer spray in silver.
I think it's funny how many of my cards end up pink or purple (or both). I loved pink and purple growing up, and dressed in those colors all of the time. Then I got so sick of them, I refused to wear either of them for YEARS. In the past few years I've moved to a happy medium where I can still wear my black or dark clothes, but I'm not afraid to add a little bit of girly flair. =D
Anyway, I hope you like my card. Thanks so much for stopping by!
