January Card Chain Challenge Reveal Day

Happy Friday!! It's the second of the month and that means it's time for the January reveal at the Card Chain Challenge - who sent what to whom! My January card went to Renata in the NL. As usual we were given a variety of challenge options to choose from, I went with the theme of "Magical" and also tried to go with the colors Aqua, Slate and Amethyst, but instead of Slate I used Black so it's not an exact match.

The background was done with Distress Oxide inks. Stamps are Lavinia's Dancing til Dawn, Spiral of Spells and Fern Leaf. I added some  glitter on the fairy wings and around the edge of the card front to make it sparkle. The sentiment sticker from Tim Holtz's Small Talk sticker book was a perfect choice I thought. 

I was happy to hear that Renata loved the card as I surely enjoyed making it :)

There is still time to take part in the February Card Chain Challenge if you sign up by February 6th. You can do so here. Any cardmaker is welcome to join as long as you are willing to make and mail a card to the person who signed up ahead of you to be received by the end of the month. 

I plan to share my fairy card with these challenges:
