Color Throwdown #18/CCEE Stampers Challenges!

Quiet house, lots of cards...and boy-o-boy did I have fun!

I found yet another challenge, a sketch challenge, at CCEE Stampers and I combined it with another of my favorite challenges at Color Throwdown.

I have to admit I didn't see the part about using eyelets. I did read the part about changing the square on the card to another shape, so why didn't I see the addition of eyelets? Hmmmm...

The Color Throwdown colors are Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Pale Plum. I had to use a little Perfect Plum ink. I needed to do a little more work on the fairy and I couldn't keep adding more and more of the Pale Plum. I think it looks great!

I'm really loving this stamp from Inkadinkado Stamps. This is the sweetest fairy and the stamp is so versatile.

I hand wrote the sentiment. It's not my best handwriting, but when I give cards to friends and family, I usually do all the sentiments by hand. I should have practised a little before I wrote it.
Dream card details:
Stamps: Beautiful Fairies (Inkadinkado)
Paper: Old Olive DSP (SU!)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Pale Plum (SU!)
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum (SU!)
Accessories: Ribbon (PTI), Cuttlebug, Nestabilities Scallop Circles, blender pen, stickles
I hope you enjoyed my card, and I really hope you like that fairy! It's quickly becoming my favorite stamp! Thanks for looking!
