New Card...

I've got to say that I'm so happy with this little card. I just got this image a few days ago and I wanted to do something special with it. Its really precious and if you like faeries like we do then you will love the Emerald Faerie Garden Images. Deb is such a sweetie and she gets the digis out very quickly.

I also used a sketch from Helmar as my base inspiration. I used it once before but didn't own any of their glue, so I couldn't join in the challenge. Well, I'm happy to announce that I now own their Scrap Dots Glue and its pretty cool. It came in very handy when I glued my card together. The embossing makes the flat adhesives have a little trouble staying put. So a dot here and there on my little banner and blossom, a touch of pressure and wha-la! Its staying put and looking great!

Okay, enough about how I made it, I'll add a recipe list after the photo. Hope you all like this one...
