June Card Chain Challenge

Hello friends. Ever get the feeling like you need more hours in a day with more days in a week? I' running behind on just about everything! While in this fragile state, one of my blog buddies had the audacity to spring another spine-chilling surprise - Christmas is 175 days away!!! Run and hide..... but before you do that, take a look at this:.

Today's post is about the June Card Chain Challenge36 girls made and exchanged cards across the globe! You can see the full reveal here: June 2015 Card Chain Challenge Reveal.  I got a gorgeous card from Lisa of Massechusetts.

If you're new to the Card Chain Challenge gig, check out the CCC FAQs over at Debi's Society of Stampaholics. Basically we send out card a card a month and receive one in return from anywhere in the world. It's fun getting something other than bills in the mail. You should try it!

For the June challenge, we were given a choice of Colour or Sketch or Theme (Patriotism / Sports / Friendship) or Products (Bling). I picked Friendship and Bling and made a card for Jerrie of Wisconsin.

The image, paper and greeting on this card is from Polka Doodles Serenity Collection. I not one for cutesie fairy images but I am in love with this collection. She's pretty, a joy to colour and suitable for adults too! This fairy is called Serenity Fairy Kisses and she is available as a separate download digi.

Here's a close-up. I coloured her with Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils, added Liquid Pearls to the flowers in her hair, Stardust Stickles to her wings and little purple Bling everywhere else!
