Quixotic Challenge Day-Our 1st Challenge!

Afternoon everyone! Today is the first day of the new challenge blog, Quixotic Challenges which shall run weekly, and there's prizes! Every month a prize will be given to a randomly drawn winner, if you enter each week you will have more chances to win the monthly prize. You can also combine our challenge with as many others as you wish! You can use whatever stamps and other products that you wish too, no restrictions. To celebrate Elaine's birthday, (Happy Birthday hun!), the challenge is to make something for a birthday, card or whatever else you fancy!

For my card I used this cute little chappie by Paper Makeup stamps called Teddy Fairy available to buy from Quixotic here. To continue the birthday celebrations Elaine has put 10% off ALL in stock items at Quixotic Paperie ending 8th November.

Stuff: Paper Makeup stamp Teddy Fairy here, copic ciao and sketch to colour, DCWV The Green Stack, Nestabilities large circles, sewing machine, wooden stars from Quixotic here, gold glimmer shimmerz paint from here, sentiment by elusive images.

Had such fun using the wooden stars and adding Shimmerz to them. I am totally addicted to Shimmerz now, its such fab stuff and totally different from all the other glittery stuff you've got in your stash! The layout is courtesy of the fab sketch at create4fun.

Here's an image close-up:~
