Back from the beach!

What a great little vacation we had! The first day at the coast was pouring rain, and anyone from Oregon knows that when I say pouring, I MEAN POURING!! Fortunately, there was an airplane museum in Tillamook, so we took the boys there and they were in heaven! The next day, the sun came out and we went to the Tillamook cheese factory and then to the beach. It was a fun although short trip! I will be back to post a couple pics :-)

So, today it was back to business for me! I set right away to make a card for today's color challenge 181. Kraft, black and Rose Red. Well, this was a challenge -I only had 1/4 sheet of kraft paper! So I got creative. Fortunately I have the SU! Rose Red Designer Prints paper and it set the stage for this cutie pie! This card is also for this week's DDC challenge! The image is from Joanne (SleepyinSeattle). She was the Double Dog Dare challenge master and sent us all 2 Chichiboulie Fairy images from Stampingbella.com. Thanks Joanne they are sooooo cute!!

The image is called Imogen the Fairy and is colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. There is a tiny flower piece of bling on her bow and dress that flows perfectly with the mini punched flowers and the doodle flowers on the DP. The sentiment is from Verve's Fairy Tales set and the gingham is from May Arts that I bought from Joann's a long time ago.

Card Deets:
Stamps: Imogen the Fairy, Fairy Tales
Paper: black, kraft, rose red, rose red designer prints
