Fairy Tale and Fantasy at The Squirrel and The Fox

Hello wonderful people!

I am writing this on an incredible high after reaching the finishing line on an incredibly intense project at work this week. After a long and hard slog, my TV ad goes live online on Monday and I am soooo proud of it. It's the highlight of my career so far and I am just itching to share it with you.

 Our challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox this fortnight is a new theme for us and I can't wait to see how people interpret it


Oooh, the places you can go with this one!

Our sponsor is the wonderful Zoe at Make It Crafty and I chose Witchy Wanda for my DT card

Isn't she fantastic! I have had this 'Witching you a Happy Birthday' sentiment for so long and I don't know where I got it. If you can enlighten me so I can give credit to the designer please do. I used a Die Namics label die for the cardstock behind the sentiment to pop it right up

The papers I have paired with this card are Wizard of Oz themed. I loved the deep greens and the hints of all the Oz favourites, like the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man and Dorothy. I coloured the image with copics.

I used a circle die to cut out the image and my Die Namics ribbon border die to highlight the two different green ribbons.

I was really unsure about this card as I was putting it together, but now I'm thrilled with how it's turned out. 

Make it Crafty are offering our winner $15 voucher to spend at their online store. There are so many gorgeous images to choose from, visit The Squirrel and The Fox to see what the rest of the DT came up with.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges;

Card Makin' Mamas - Happy Birthday
