Pocket Full of Posies

Stamping for the weekend's challenge this week is a pocket full of..........
I have used another Pixie from Charmed Cards
which I have coloured with copics and added fairy dust. (Whoever said that crafters dont make mistakes they have happy accidents LIED, I coloured my first pixie and have to say I was really pleased at how her dress turned out, I thought to myself that i'm starting to really get the hang of this shading lark. Anyways there I am happily guillotining my designer papers, when I realised that the pixie had got stuck to the back of one and I had cut her in half!!!!!!!!! What a plum!
I really didnt think it was a happy accident in fact I said a few naughty words, like 'oh dear' and 'sugar'!!!!!!!!!!! Hence there is now half a pixie on the inside. (and her dress is so not as good second time round).
The papers I have used are from Extreme Designer Vol 2 and card from an old Anna Griffen set.
I haven't put anything inside the envelopes as yet cause im not sure who this card will be for.


  1. Beccy that's a lovely card, love the front with your wee pixie, and there is nothing wrong with her dress at all, you've done a lovely job coloring her, and it really is a happy accident, cause now you got a pixie on the inside as well, I love those week envelopes you made with the papers too, they look fabulous.
    Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge again this week.. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a great day.

  2. Fabulous card! The papr is beautiful and I love the cute image, love how you put her sit in the circle. I'm sorry about the "accident" you had.

    Thank you for joining us at SFTW and good luck, we hope you'll join us again next week. :)

  3. Great card, love how your colored her and put everything together! I am glad that I am not the only one that makes boo boos! I recently accidentally cut a fairy that I had colored through her face!

  4. Oh your poor pixie she still looks a lot better than I think she would if I attacked her with copics though I have not got any yet and they still scare me a bit lol. This card is beautiful and I am glad your half pixie still got used she looks good inside. Those little envelopes are adorable too I love it all.
