Die Cut Dreams - Challenge #100 - Use a poem on your card

Hi Girls

Well here I am with my very first DT card for the Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog... - I have been so excited since being asked to join Susie and her teamies... and have to say a big thank you for being given the opportunity to take part!  Now... the challenge - I did scratch my head!  'Use a poem on a card' I was told.......  sounds so easy, and actually was, once I got down to it!  I look forward to seeing your creations for this fab challenge...  and the lovely Susie is putting up this fantastic prize ... feast your eyes on these goodies!

So come on girls, to be in with a chance, all you have to do is to create a card with a poem.....  Why don't you pop over to the Die Cut Dreams Challenge blog and see what fab creations my lovely new teamies have come up with?

Onto my card:

I used:
  • Woodland Fairy  image from Sugar Nellie
  • Bazzil cardstock for base
  • Prima 6 x 6 paper
  • Memory Box Delicate Vine Die
  • Nestabilities Labels 22 Die
  • Ice Stickles - Crystal Ice
  • Woodware small butterfly punch from The Hobby House
I distressed the edges of the prima paper, and added the stickles... and I also sponged the nestie-cut shape before I took the die off the card... I coloured the image with copics, distressed and glittered the little verse, and finished with glitter and a gem or two!

Hope you like!
