Ebony Hugs

Hello again!  Long time no see! LOL  Two in one day, wowwee!  It's A & T Emerald Faeries Challenge time!  Our theme this month is "Bling."  Do you think that is one of the favorite themes?  Bling projects are fun to make!

There are lots of the cutest faeries ever in the A & T Emerald Faeries Store.  We have sentiments and other digis, too, by the very talented Anita- the "A" in "A & T"! But my fav is the faeries so I have chosen to do Ebony this go:

The bling doesn't show too well but the birds and background are out of that glitter card stock.  There are gems and Glossy Accents butterflies, too.  This fold is one I saw that Julie of Penny's Paper-Crafty made.  It is a type of easel, but sorta in reverse! The little top flower has a brad on a corner die cut, then a brad on the back easel to slip the die on and hold the image panel at that slant angle.  I hope that made sense!  Pretty fun to make. 

Here is a closer look at just Ebony:

Well, friends, I am looking forward to seeing your artwork at the A & T Emerald Faeries Challenge #41 this month.  Go look around our shop, you will fall in love with these faeries!  A blast to color and make up!

See you again in a few days...
Hoping for the bestest of weekends for you, full of them there Bright Spots!
