Stamp Fairy Friday

Hello, Happy Friday everyone.. did you see THE Wedding? Were you there?? How exciting!!  boo I was at work   :(  ......... I thought I would be able to have some sneak peeks from some colleagues' PCs that have internet access but no...  everything was blocked .. thumbs down .. .. so you can imagine how I flew home to have a look ... so exciting, not something that happens every day .. .. She was beautiful, so pretty and gorgeous dress, loved it.

I have my Stamp Fairy Friday card to show you today. Gerda has released some Funny Princess images in occasion of this day... so cute... and the sentiment is the freebie for this week.

This is what I did at first... can't say I am so pleased with how my card turned out .. my mojo was somewhere I don't know where...

First I tried making a blue red white card, BUT I really wanted to use my new leaf die that I bought .. so I had to forget this colour combo if I wanted grass on my card... in fact it's the top part of my card that I didn't like that much .... 

and I say I didn't.. because well today looking at it again I decided that I just had to do something about it! So as soon as I saw some of the wedding highlights I printed off this gorgeous clouds paper and I think it looks so much better.. what do you think?

The clouds and the castle are both freebies I found on the internet while trying to do my card.. I thought the castle was just perfect for my card.. you can get them from here. I punched the flowers with my MS punch, the grass with my DieNamics die and butterflies with my XCut punch.

I am entering my card into these challenges today.
- A Spoonful of Sugar 149 - A RIGHT ROYAL KNEES UP
- Pear Tree Designs 46 - COLOURFUL
- Little Miss Muffet 8 - DIE CUTS or PUNCHES

And hey, I got some really exciting news now ... woo hoo. .. I did the Top 3 at the Totally Papercrafts Challenge
