Elphine House Australia Design Team Call

I saw the post that Elphine House is having a DT call for two new members. I thought I'd submit a card with the hopes of making the team since I love my Elisabeth Bell stamps!  Here's my card and the image's name is Fairy Faye Make a Wish.

I used oranges and pinks for this card because the image is tropical to me with her grass skirt and the flowers in her hair which remind me of a lei. I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a Marvy punch for the leaves, rhinestone swirls from Recollections, I don't remember who made the sheet of Friendship sentiments which I purchased at a convention, and I used a Stampin' Up punch for the sentiment.  The lace is from my extensive stash.

I colored Fairy Faye with Copics and applied Warm Glitter Ritz over her wings. The dandelions have turned into blowballs (or "clocks") and can be seen flying...and although the blowballs are seasonal, friendship isn't. 

Thanks for looking at my card!

PLEASE READ:  After reading the recent post (Aug. 21) outlining the responsibilities of being on the Elphine House Design Team, I am withdrawing my card from the Design Team Call challenge. I do not participate in Facebook or Facebook activities.  Thank you for the well wishes left for me for this challenge, and please know I appreciate all the encouragement you gave me.

  8. Ahh, your card is beautiful, Gail. I love the papers and cute image.

  9. I just LOVE the tropical look to your card to match your beloved Elisabeth Bell stamp image. You put so much attention to detail and each of your cards attest to the love you put into them. Love the attention you placed on the EB image, rather than minimizing it with over-powering embellishments. Ding-ding-ding, this card is a winner, if I get to vote and I think you'd make a GREAT addition to their DT . . . GOOD LUCK to you!!

  10. Great card Gail and I like the how you've made it so colourful. Sweet image and I like all the sparkle and glitter. Good luck with your entry (fingers crossed for ya!)
