My Colour Me In Card.

Well, i said i would find something different to do and i did, as i was printing out some paper for the funky fairy challenge i came across these little flower backing papers from the 'do ya doodle' funky fairy downloads and i was hit by a brainwave, doesn't happen often but i'm quite proud of this one lol. Well i thought wouldn't it be a good idea to make a card for a child that they could colour in themselves, now i'm sure it has been thought of but for now i'm feeling pretty clever so don't spoil it for me hehe. Anyway i stamped out a funky fairy too and although i was tempted i didn't colour her, I've added doodle stitches to the black background card as this weeks funky fairy challenge is to use faux stitches, so out came the white gel pen. Ribbon tags, ribbon, flowers and brads are all from Poppicrafts. Thought i would add a little packet of pencils to the inside of the card too.

Good idea - although it's lovely as it is, providing pencils for a child to colour it is great too!

I've just downloaded some funky fairy stuff, so off to take a look and see what I can use too! LOL! Thanks for the inspiration!
