Fitztown Guest Designer - Hurray!

This is my first post as Guest Designer on Fitztown Challenge Blog and it's to celebrate their first birthday.

Here's some more information for you, so read it carefully and then please come along and join us:

You should have arrived here from Ema's blog, however, if you're lost then go to the Fitztown challenge blog and find your way again. 

We've got something special going on this week! As usual, we've got our challenge to play along with. We have a CELEBRATION theme for this challenge and this is for a very special reason! Celebrations can include birthdays, anniversaries, new baby, new home, new job, retirements, weddings, graduations... you get the idea!

Fifty two weeks ago today, Fitztown Challenge Blog launched its very first challenge! Woohoo! So put on your party hat and fancy duds, shine up your party shoes and come celebrate with us at our CELEBRATION Blog Hop! 
So much has happened with the blog. We, as most new blogs do, had some growing pains and we continue to learn and grow. The collections in the store have also continued to expand! We want to show you something from ALL the collections. After all, Fitztown is not all about fairies and teddy bears! Fitztown has SO MUCH MORE to offer! Each Design Team (DT) member and Guest Designer (GD) is featuring a project from different collections throughout the store. Be sure to visit all of them so you won't miss out on what's available!

In the mean time, we want you to party down with us! We've got some special prizes to make this a fun celebration! Keep reading! Below my card and description I'll list the rules and the order to follow the blog hop. 

My image is the beautiful Fae 10 and is available in the Fitztown store.

My card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then added little touches of glitter with a Sakura gelly roll pen to give a lift in certain place on the wings and the garland. I gave a slight edge of lemon before fussy cutting the image. I matted Fae on to a sheet from a Raspberry Road pad which was a freebie! They're all beautiful sheets of backing paper. I added the paper to yellow card and bright blue card to make a border to enhance the image. The yellow card is from Papermill and the blue card was a present.  I don't think this beautiful image needs much in the way of embellishments so the only thing I added was a computer generated sentiment reading Let's Celebrate. I used squeezed lemonade Distress Ink on the edge of the sentiment and added a small blue gem to the corner. Job done and I really love this card.

Along with having our usual winner and TOP 3 for the challenge, we will be having two additional prizes! We will be using to determine prizes for the blog hop. We will draw a name from comments on the Fitztown Challenge Blog for a TWO-DIGI prize. Plus, we have a freebie again and to win the freebie, all you have to do is dance on over and leave comments on the DT's and GD's personal blogs. We will draw a name from all the comments on their posts between now and Saturday, May 31st. Visit the Fitztown Challenge Blog to view the freebie!
