Thinking of You!

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are able to keep warm if you are anywhere near all this cold weather we are having!  I am so happy today! First off it's finally Friday! Secondly - I won my first challenge! Thank you guys at Fab N Funky Challenges! 
Yesterday I FINALLY received my order from Wild Orchid Crafts!  I had been patiently awaiting its arrival for a little while now.(Just ask the mail lady).  It takes a long time to have something shipped from the United Kingdom to Illinois!! But, of course it was worth the wait! I just love their products... Anyway...I couldn't wait to be off work so I could get home and play!  This is what I came up with:

I used this adorable image from The Paper Shelter called There's A Fairy In My Tea.  I cropped her to showcase her darling face and added a thick black border.  I colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils and matted her on white cardstock edged with burgundy ink.  The flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper is all from Recollections. The sentiment was computer generated and cut with a Martha Stuart border punch. I finished her off with ribbon, lace, bling and a butterfly from my stash.

Doesn't she look just like she is thinking of someone special?
I am going to enter her into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget there are lots of challenges out there! To name just a couple -
4 Crafty Chicks - BLING - It's all about the BLING!
Crafting From The Heart - Fancy Folds - Show us those fancy folded cards!
So, what are you waiting for? Go have some fun and join a challenge or 3!!

This card is so darn pretty...I love how you cropped this little image's face, how come I never think to do things like that? It's gorgeous done like that and you colored her beautifully! I LOVE your WO pretty and sweet! And that's wide and lacy looking! the rhinestone swirls are a perfect accept to this card and the sentiment on top...pretty with the lacy edge. Cool butterfly on this card, too. Overall, this card is wonderful; the colors, the image, and your choices of embellishments. Congrats on winning your first challenge--I suspect you will now find it addictive. :) Hope you win your other challenges; this card deserves it! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Shelter challenge and hope you'll become a regular in our challenges. Hugs, Gail
