Corrosive Challenge Put a Pin in it!

Hello everyone! I am excited to share that I am now part of the Corrosive Challenge DT- such a nice group of folks and a great selection of challenges coming your way!

The Challenge for this two week period, Challenge 166: Stick a Pin in it!  You can use a safety pin, stick pin, straight pin, jewelry pin, etc- and/or use the inspiration picture found on the challenge blog!  Two ways to go!  And we are happy to be sponsored by  A and T Digital Designs!

These little fairies are just sooo cute!  I made my card a different size/shape than normal- it fits in a standard business mailing envie.  I think the tall shape works well for the image.   I used The Larakins image- love it!  I colored with copics and spica pens, added some distress ink in the background, then added Prima flowers and MS  punched leaves, and in the center at the bottom, in the seam binding bow, I added a matching stick pin I had received in a swap awhile back!  I used papers from Victoria Gardens collection by Echo Park, (I think) and some vintage lace and seam binding.  I also  added some pearls and spritzed the whole thing with Glimmer Mist in Pearl. The sentiment is from Unity stamps.  It says Make the Everyday Magical.  Sorry for the kinda sad pics- with our weather lately, it's been hard to get home in time for some light left!

I hope you can join us for this challenge!  Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog and see all the other DT creations!
