Valentine Candy Box for Fairy Fun Fridays!

It's Fairy Fun Friday time again! Woo-hoo! And, I have another awesome image to show you from Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps by Roberta. Isn't this little cow adorable?! I just love the sentiment Roberta created to accompany it too. The digital stamp is called "Udderly" and you can find it in Roberta's store HERE. She also has some new releases created just for Valentines and you will definitely want to check them out!

The challenge this week at Fairy Fun Friday is a sketch challenge, but I decided to do something a little different than my usual card or layout! I decided to alter a candy box for my hubby that I received for Valentine's Day last year! I used my Prisma Pencils to color the image and used Stickles on the cow bell. The glitter paper is by Colorbok, and the patterned papers are by Pink Paislee. The cardstock is by SU & Bazzill. I used white & magenta ink by Studio G for some distressing and I also used Glimmer Mist on the scalloped square, which I cut using my Cricut Mini Monograms cart. I used hot glue to adhere the ruffled ribbon from my stash around the underside of the top cover, the ribbon on top is by American Crafts, as is the pink satin ribbon on the side. The silk flowers are from the Dollar Tree. I just buy them in bunches and separate them at home! The bling is also from my dear friend Leah, whose blog candy I won back in December!

I recently started really getting into challenges (they are definitely fun!) and am going to enter this one into the following:
Pile It On - No More Winter Colors
DCRU - Sugar Rush Color Combo
SPCC - Color Combo
Pink Elephant - All About Pink
Stampavie & More - Pink & Brown

Pixie Dust Studio Pixie - 3-D Project
Dare U 2 Digi - Hearts/Valentine
Bee Crafty - Romance

Whew! That was a lot! LOL! If you have a moment it would just tickle me pink if you would visit the Fairy Fun Friday blog and leave us some love! Make sure to check out the challenge, candy and all the DT inspiration! And, stop by Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps too! You will definitely love what you see! Happy Scrappin'!
