Sir Stampalot Challenge Fantasy Card - I Believe Do You and Blog Candy

Good afternoon to you all and especially to my new followers.

Firstly a reminder about my blog candy, which is running along side the Winter Wonderland Relaunch  Challenge.

BLOG CANDY
I wanted to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors and I have not offered any blog candy before.  I also wanted to finally celebrate my new DT position on the WW team - how fantastic, I get to keep my New Years resolution of making a Xmas card each week, no excuses now! 
Here is the prize - a selection of interesting stash.  The papermania paper pad perfect for our Easter Bunny theme at WW, some lovely spring toppers, a couple of Xmas punches and stamps and some glitter to die for, all perfect for your Xmas creations at WW. 
So what do you have to do?
1) add this pic to your sidebar with a link back to my blog and the closing date of Tuesday 4th May
2) become a follower of my Blog
3) leave a comment below so I can come and visit you too (and of course pick a winner)
4) Join in at least one Winter Wonderland challenge between now and May 4th - and help me celebrate becoming a WW DT member :0)
Then that's it!
The winner will be picked at 8 pm on 4th May by Random Generator so make sure you check to see if it is you - I will then post out to the winner and look forward to seeing your creations on Winter Wonderland.


Now this card, was a necessity as Sir Stampalot is one of my favorite places to shop and they have their very first Challenge which is a theme of "Fantasy" I don't have many stamps to meet this criteria but this one I feel is that underwater fantasy of sea creatures, mermaids etc.  This is a challenge and a half as you have to enter another five challenges and can only enter Sir Stampalot if it is a combo of five, Sir Stampalot making six.


So here are my five challenges


Friday Sketchers - with this perfect sketch and they are sponsored this week by my Simon Says Stamp (who are also now sponsoring Winter Wonderland)


Totally Papercrafts - 4 embelishments, 3 Papers, 2 ribbons/lace and 1 image
I have used 3 mono papers from the Capsule range, a butterfly charm,  flowers, pearls and a feather instead of a leaf and lots and lots of glitter.  The lace is a thread through lace so I threaded through the green ribbon - thread through lace from Running with Scissors. And the image is from my winnings at Sweet Pea Stamps.

Copic Colour Challenge - a fabulous colour selection this week
Caardvarks - Celebrating Core'dinations - create a monochromatic card ( a regular thing for me at the moment)


Sweet Pea Stampers - Wonderland (my interpretation of a water wonderland)
 
 Finally to the card then :)

and finally the close up of the copic colour blended image

well must get going, as need to go shopping, cut the grass and get to the ironing - but the sun is out two of the jobs wont seem to bad as I get to be out in it.

chow for now my friends
