Hi, it's me again already with my card for the  new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky., chosen and hosted by the lovely and talented Wends, her blog is well worth a visit you won't be disappointed! This week's theme is 'Fables and Fantasy'- so literally a fabulous challenge!
Our generous sponsor this week, The Paper Shelter provided us with some beautiful images, and I chose to use this lovely lady, Purity. As you will know, if you've ever bought or been lucky enough to win any of TPS gorgeous digis you get a whole lot digis for your money...coloured, uncoloured, jpeg,png, and gorgeous background papers too! I chose to use the uncoloured image and  got out my trusty copics! The background is plain cream card, coloured a soft green with distress inks, then stamped with various background and foliage stamps in shades of green and brown, generously splattered with frontage. Immediately behind the image is a frame die cut from scraps of dp. The birdcage is a Marianne Die, the butterflies are Tim Holtz Sizzix, the base cut from vellum coloured with pigment ink. I so enjoyed making this card!
We'd love to have you join us at Fab 'n' Funky this week, so why not hop over now and see what team Funky have made to inspire you, then join the fun you could be the lucky winner of this week's fabulous prize!

Have a lovely day!
