My Tiddly Inks Debut..

Dun. Dun. Duuuunnnnn!! You read right!! I've been trying my hardest to keep this quiet for the best part of a month and I honestly don't think I've done all that bad. Not that it was a secret as such, I just wanted to SURPRISE you guys. Did it work?! :) Apart from my little post introducing you all to Cowgirl Wryn.. which I think slipped under most peoples radars.. did any of you guys guess?! Heehee.

Christy and Melissa approached me way back at the beginning of January and asked if I'd like to be on the Tiddly Inks design team. Come on!! I'd have been stoopid to say no. So naturally I was like HELL YEAH!! I wanted to wait until my SOG term (sadly) come to an end so I could start a fresh giving my all to this amazing DT. So there ya have it. :)

So today it's time for a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks.We want to see those projects

I've used the adorable Wryn - New Wings on my card today - isn't she the sweetest?! Guarenteed to cheer anyone up! :) I've coloured the image using ProMarkers and Copics.

I used some left over papers from My Minds Eye Rosy collection as well as my last length of this yummy grosgrain ribbon for the cute little bow. :) Using stash. Using stash. I printed the matching sentiment and die cut it using an X-cut die - I then added some little Doodlebug brads to the ends and adhered it to the card using dimensionals.

As for the sparkly elements - I added Stickles to the cross on her little nurses hat and clip as well as the white Wild Orchid Craft roses at the top and botton of the image. I added some white pearls and some green and white moonstone brads. Sparkly and shiny! :) Glitter never shows up how you want it to on pictures!!

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes
Truly Madly Crafty - Ribbons and Bling
CES - Lots of Layers

I can't wait to see where this brand new adventure takes me! Hopefully you guys will stick along for the ride. More Wryns to come - that's all I'mma tell you right now. I love my Wryns. Heehee.
