Fairy Rosie...

This card is for my young Granddaughter who is 5 - 
she called to ask her GG for a card with a girl and flowers.
You got it sweet thing!

This is midweek inspiration time for the Aud Sentiments Challenge - "Any Sentiment".  You still have a week to get a card in for this easy theme... and if you need some ideas, the Design Team has some great cards goin' on!  You can see them HERE and also get details about the prizes, due date and challenge rules.

This Fairy Rosie image is from Prairie Fairy Designs and I have done paper sculpting with four layers of the printed image.

Starting with the magnificent Basic Grey Paper, I chose colors for my fairy & used Copics to color the image parts.  They were fussy cut and layered with foam tape to create my focal image.  Assembly then included positioning the vellum stickers on the background, layering the lace and ribbon and sentiment, and finally the focal image.

This card should be eligible for the following

Totally Papercrafts #182 - Decoupage WON

EMBELLISHMENTS: Ribbon, lace and vellum stickers all from stash.
INKS:  the image was printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics:

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