Fairy wishes...

Back to my favorites for awhile... Mo Manning and her generous sized Fairy!  Colored with Copics, diamond star added to her wand and diamond glitter in her wings. (See the close-up below.)  I layered with punched lace and die cuts to add to the airiness (Sp?).  Created the sentiment on the computer and backed everything with black matting to make it pop a bit.  The image panel and the flourish have been elevated with the help of foam tape which you can see better at an angle.  Finished with black pearls to "pin" down the panels.

 This card should be eligible for the following
Crafty Ribbons #43 - Pink and Green

May you color with abandon, create wildly and always make what amuses you!
