Good day to every body. First of all, thanks for the lovely comments on my previous card!
It has been a few weeks ago that I put up a new card on my blog. I was rather busy with all kinds of family stuff.
And I also must admit that it has been rather hot over here in Luxor and than sometimes I can't put myself in to making a card.
But today I have a new one for you.
Again I used a digital stamp from Morgan Fitzsimons, this is 'Sorrel'. I bought this one already ages ago and never coloured him up. Unfortunately this digi is not standing in her shop any more.
Because it's a male/boy card, I kept it very simple with little embellishments.
The papers coming from a paper pack from Basic Grey, 'Vintage'.
The sentiment stamp is coming from Flourishes.
To create a little bit dimension I attached the digi stamp and the sentiment stamp with foam to the papers.
For the rest I only used some green brads up in the corners.
Copic colours used for the image:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E93
Mouth: R20, R22
Hair: C0, C1, C3, C5, BV31
Armour: T1, T3, T5, T7
Arm protector: T1, T3, T5, B21, B24, B26, B28, Y17
Clothes: YG61, YG63, YG67, BG11, BG15
Bow: E31, E33, E57, Y13, Y15, Y17
Ruby: R32, R35, R37

The inside of the card I decorated very simple. I only used a Rectangle Nestabilitie and Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilie, so you can write your on message in it.
That was it for today peeps. I hope you like my card again and hope to see you a little bit sooner this time.
Have a nice weekend and thanks for your visit!

Have a Great Birthday

Good day everybody on this sunny day here in Egypt, Luxor. First of all I have to say thank you for the lovely comments you left on my blog for my last card. Today I'm back with a new card for you.
This one is made with a digi stamp from Morgan Fitzsimons, one of her 'Fae' series. Isn't she lovely! I coloured her up with my Copic Markers. By the way, this is 'Fae 28'.
The papers I used are from a paper pad from Kaisercraft, 'Fairy Dust'. Super lovely papers in lilac, teal and silver.
The sentiment stamp is a digi from my computer. Unfortunately I do not know the artist any more.
On the top of the card I used a die from Tim Holtz. Cut it out twice, one in the lilac card stock and one in the designer paper. The butterflies in the designer paper out cut lose and the attached them on the card stock.
The little butterfly in the right corner is a die from Noor! Design, 6002/0390 '2 Vlinder'.
The edge I made with a punch from Fiskars, 'Apron Lace'.
Digi stamp coloured with Copic Markers:
Skin: E0000, E000, E01, E11, E93
Hair: E70, E71, E74, E77
Dress: V20, V22, V25, V28, BG70, BG72, BG75
Wings: V09, V22, V25, BG72, BG75, BG78
Flowers: RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99
Leaves: BG90, BG93, BG99
Tattoos: Spica pen 05 Lemon, 13 Lilac
The swirl is a die from Memory Box, 'Whimsical Flourish'.
The flowers and roses are coming from Wild Orchid Flowers.
The shiny rhinestone what you can see peeking out under the flowers is coming from The Hobbyhouse.
The lace is from my stash and I also used some lilac Scrappers Floss. And I put some lilac stamens between it.
On the side I squeezed in a little tag under the papers. The swirl stamped on the tag is a stamp from Unique Hobby, ''Grunge Swirl #1'. The ink used is from Memento, 'Lavender Lulu'.

The beautiful butterfly is a die from Cheery Lynn and is out of a set of three, 'Small Exotic Butterfly #1'.
Above the sentiment I glued a little pearl heart.

The inside of the card I decorated accordingly but kept it simple. For that I used one of the papers from the paper pad with all pretty sayings and fluttering butterflies with glitter on it.
The round papers I cut out with Nestabilities, so you can write your own message on it.
The little stamped butterfly on it is a stamp from Darcie's and I stamped her also with Memento Ink, 'Lavender Lulu'.
For finishing the card I used Stickels, 'Silver' on the flowers and butterflies, and also along the edges of the digi stamp.
All the papers I inked up with Distress Ink, 'Walnut Stain'.
The pearls and rhinestones are also coming from The Hobbyhouse.
I hope you like this card again. Thanks for your visit and always appreciate your lovely comments! Have a great weekend.
