Prairie Fairy Challenge: For the Guys!

Oh man, I'm so dropping the ball on these posts! This post is to share my creation for the latest Prairie Fairy Friday Challenge: For the Guys!  Please visit the Prairie Fairy Fridays blog to see the DT's wonderful creations and to enter our challenge!

For this card, I've used the Prairie Fairy image called Chick Magnet.  Isn't that the cutest name ever??  This card was for the Card Patterns sketch, but I didn't post this early enough and that challenge has ended already :(  I really worked hard on the paper weaving in the background, too! I embossed some papers with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, cut the papers in strips, then weaved them.

Great "guy" card Ann! Wow! Your coloring with DI is just gorgeous. Every time I see your cards, I am awestruck of how well you move that brush and ink. I've tried and tried and still can't get the colors to blends. Anyway, back to your card, I love everything about it! Hugs, Cami
