March's Birth stone - Aquamarine...

"Chubby Fairy Dream" provided by ADFD
Looove this Chubby Fairy from A Day For Daisies!  It is really nice to see an image of a chubby girl/woman associated with pretty, coy, sweet, innocent...  and I wanted to call attention to that.  So, I used the spotlight technique to focus on her beauty using the "Mega Swiss Dot Circle" rubber stamp.  The oval frame  embossed is from a Darice Embossing Folder and the die cut oval is Spellbinders.
This is my DT card for the current challenge at 613 Ave C - #114 - ATG /optional twist to use Aquamarine.  The team has some outstanding ideas and creativity to share with you... just click on the link.  You have till next Saturday 3/14 to get as many as three entries submitted to be eligible for one of the prizes!  Go for it!
