Fairy Pari Berry

Quick Announcement: I just wanted to say the biggest thankyou to all of you who have supported me over at the Fashionista Challenge Blog. It was such an honour to make top 5 but even more of an honour to be receiving this much support from you all :) Currently it is very close and I would LOVE it if you could pop over and take a vote if you haven't yet :) I am so thankful for all of the support and your kind words!

Hi everyone! Today I have my first card as a Southern Girls DT Member to share with you! We have a super fun challenge this week that I hope to see you all enter; the theme is GIRLY! You can use any image and be located anywhere around the world though there are two prizes; one international and one Australia/New Zealand. One of the sponsors this week is DTS Art - they do some really cute images like the one I have used here; the cutie Fairy Pari Berry :)

The papers are a digi collection by Michele R Designs, which I LOVE - I have sooo many of these now hehe. I have used a whole bunch of embellishments; cheesecloth, pearls, flowers, jute ribbon, and lace all from wild orchid, and a cute little butterfly from my stash. I have sewn onto all of the papers and distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo. The little circles are cut out from a 12x12 sheet which was a gift - I love how these add a nice vintage touch :)

I coloured up Pari Berry using copic markers. Here are thecolours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53, E00, E11, R11
Hai: E43, E45, E49
Dress: V00, V04, V06
Strawberry: Red R20, R22, R29, Green G40, G43, G47

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Material Girl (I used Cheesecloth :)
The Kraft Journal - Just for Kids + Kraft
Cooking it Up With Katie - Green, Gorgeous, Garden (I have used hints of green plus the strawberry from the garden to match the theme :)
