One Stitch At A Time Challenge.

So it's Sunday and that means it's time for another challenge over at the OSAAT challenge blog. The theme this week is 'Happy Birthday' and to bring awareness to Operation Write Home, a worthy cause to support troops deployed overseas. So here's my DT offering........a Happy Birthday card/bookmark............

Now, this card does not actually fulfill the requirements needed by OWH due to the size and glitter etc - you can check out what's required here, but I'd already sent a couple of cards their way, and just wanted to show here, an idea of a card and gift in one (with relatively low postage!).

The image I've used is 'Funky Fairy' designed by Eiglas, which you can find at the Stitchy Bear Stamps shop. She struck me as being a little 'Goth' so I dug into my purples and black Prisma's and even used Halloween DP's from Basic Grey's 'eerie' line. There is a lot of glitter on here, and I mean a dining table is still recovering! I printed the sentiment banner separately and glittered and popped from the card. There's glitter on the tutu and wings too. I also enlarged slightly, then printed the image again, obviously, to use part of it for the cameo on the bookmark. I've never actually made a bookmark card before, but with a little help from a perforating blade, I'm quite happy with the results.

The prize this week at the OSAAT blog is a gift voucher from Joanna Sheen, and don't forget there is still blog candy up for grabs, which will increase if enough images from the store are used. So, don't let me keep you......hop on over and take a look at what the rest of the DT have come up with.

This 'funky fairy' will also be fluttering her way into the following challenges:

Totally Stampalicious - Books

For Fun Challenges - Glitter

Oh Alice - Chapter 31 Use Crowns and/or Mythical Creatures

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - #101 Anything Goes

Have fun!
