One Card Two Challenges!

Today I wanted to do challenges but really only have time for one card as I have loads more degree work to do. The two challenges I wanted to have a go at was this one HERE on Caardvarks, this challenge was to make a fantasy themed card. The second was HERE at CPS. They had this sketch below, so I decided to combine the two and I think it came out just nice.




I decided it was time to break the seal on the PTI supplies I bought a while back! The raspberry fizz looks striking against the blacked framed white card. Below is a close up of the raspberry fizz ink and the fairy which was stamped and embossed. I applied glitter glue to her wings for that extra glittery fantasy effect!


{Ingredients}
Card: Whisper White, Basic Black, both SU! Raspberry Fizz PTI
Ink: PTI Raspberry Fizz, Color Box Black pigment 
Stamps: Fairy by Personal Impressions, Fantastic Flourishes HA
Accessories: HA Gems, Glitter Glue, Stardust Embossing Powder, Hodgepodge Hardware SU! PTI Raspberry Fizz Swiss Dots Ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today. It's Easter here in the UK and I'm off today and Monday but at work all day Saturday and Sunday - hope it's not too busy. I may not get to post till Monday it all depends on how busy work is!
