There is also going to be an overall grand prize, which is being sponsored by Lisa from Scrapping with Lisa and she will be the first and last blog on the hop. See full details about her prize on her blog.

Today's project turned out to be something completely different to what I originally planned. I even bought a paper piecing pattern, but then didn't have anything to do with it - no photo's to scrap.... nothing...
Luckily I chanced upon this digi image from A day for Daisies. She is the good luck pixie. I really felt like doing something pretty, so this was perfect!

The first image is the front view of (yet another) joy fold card. I've put the peg there to hold it closed while I take the picture...

This is the view of the card left to stand on it's own... (I did put glitter on the wings, but it's not showing up...)

This is the view of the opened joy fold card, with the front flap still slightly "closed"(or open ... ?)...

Here is a close-up of my colouring... I used watercolour pencils and artist spirits (my favourite colouring technique, and ever so easy to do)...
Like the swirl? I've used one my stencils (that I make, and available through my store... although currently only South Africa) with 2 different shades of pink coloured flat backed pearls...
I'll be giving one lucky person 2 stencils - all you need to do to win is leave a comment...

I hope you enjoyed the hop... now it's off to see what Christine has to show us today...
