Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge -#46 All In The Fine Print...DT Card!

Time for another Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge! This week the challenge theme is "All In The Fine Print"! That means we want to see a little bit of something with print on can be design paper with words, print (sentiment does not count) or embossing with script, which I have used on my card...

I have used Roberta's lovely "Cherry Blossoms" image found in the "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop here! For my bit of "Fine Print" I have used my Script embossing folder from "Cuttlebug"!

I have layered the blossoms 3 times and 3D mounted the script frame and background frame to make them come alive! Here are some closeups of the layering...

This one shows a better closeup of the shimmery mocha cardstock I used for the base and the sparkly rhinestones I used for the centers of the blossoms! I thought the shimmery cardstock blended really well with the beautiful floral DP!

And of course a card is not complete without the inside all dressed up too!...

PAPERS: Shimmery mocha brown cardstock for the base and white textured cardstock from "DCWV". Designer paper from "Recollections".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is a beautiful digi stamp from "Prairie Fairy Designs".
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. 
EMBELLISHMENTS: Faux rhinestones and clear acrylic dew drops.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Cuttlebug" with Script embossing folder and "Spellbinders" circles dies.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with light pink color thread. The image was cut and layered, then 3D mounted. 

I had so much fun with this challenge and you will too! So be sure to stop on by the Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge blog, check out all the other wonderful inspiration the Fairy Princesses have come up with and join in the fun just might be one of the lucky winners of Roberta's digi stamp prizes!!
