Kim & Tara Challenge # 7....Happy Summer...Sweetie!!!

Well, I'm back as promised with this months Kim & Tara Monthly Challenge...this challenge between me and my good stampin' pal Kim, from Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner, is so much fun! I love that we have a bit of twist to our challenge too! You know the drill by now though, right?! One of us sends the patterned paper and the other sends the image and neither of us knows what we are getting until it arrives! It is just a big ol' surpirse and who doesn't love a surprise, smile!

Well, isn't this C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie, Heidi, just the cutest wee thing? Gosh, I just love her and her Pixie friend Gretel too! When I got these images from Kimmie I was sooooo thrilled and I sent Kim this great K&Co. Citronella paper and I think they are a great match!

For my card I used a 6x6 cardbase of red Bazzill Bling and I matted the circles paper in pink Bazzill cardstock. I cut the cloud paper with my flower Nestie as I thought it would double for a cloud and I matted it in blue Prism cardstock. I cut out a few of the clouds from the pp and pop dotted them over the clouds in the pp and added one for Heidi to float on. I love pp with words on it and this gold foil word paper has lots of great summery words and sayings on it.

To finish it off I added some yummy American Crafts ribbon and The C.C. Designs Sugar Plum sentiment is stamped on a Nestie tag with VersaMark ink and embossed with white American Craft Zing embossing powder...my new fave thing!!!! I pop-dotted it too and added a MM heart brad!

Here is the inside...I basically used the same layout as the front. I added the white cardstock so I can add a little personal note to the card. This inside sentiment is by Studio G and I embossed it with the Zing embossing powder too.

So I am pretty happy with how this card turned out, I am just not that crazy about the dark blue Stickles on Heidi's wings. I should have stuck with my tried and true Crystal Stickles!

Well, there you have it another card! I had a blast with this K&T challenge! Now, I haven't even had a sneak peek of Kimmie's card this time, so I am going to hop on over to her blog now and see what cute creation she has come up with!!! I just know it is going to be super fabulous! Now, you make sure you head on over there too!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek of this sweet wee Swiss Pixie and of my K&T Challenge card!
