Anything with a Heart at Sunshine Mail

click images to enlarge
Our current challenge theme at the Sunshine Mail Foundation is "Anything with a Heart" & the only real rule is that you send in at least one card (it doesn't have to be the card you enter in the challenge; Donation guidelines here). This challenge is sponsored by Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet, so I used the Baby Bug Set by BB Kakes.

If you want to try your own Card in a Box, there's a great written tutorial at Splitcoaststampers, and a video tutorial by Stampin T! for a smaller version. I trimmed my card down to 5.5 inches tall, to fit in an American/A2 envelope; you can find my measurements here on my blog.

Here's the card all closed up:

And then it pops up into a box:

I colored the sweet fairy with Copics, printing her wings on vellum. The other images were printed on a pink paper and colored with Tekwriter gel pens and Smooch enamel.
The sentiment is by When the Scrap Hits the Fun. The heart-patterned papers are from a K&Company set that I've had for years. Love the vintage touches.

The Crazy Challenge: Fairytale (I've studied the DT samples & I think this applies as a "fairy tale")
Deep Ocean Challenge #70: Fantasy
Hanna & Friends: Hearts + cute/stamped/person/animal
Scrapbooker PhD: Hearts (use red and pink)

Thank you for visiting, and hope you'll join us at Sunshine Mail,
