Gena's card...

This card is by Gena, my 13 year old neighbor friend.  Gena has been coming over for awhile to take "lessons".  Today she finished up this card and wanted to post this in my blog so my friends could see it.  I suggested we should also enter it into some challenges.
After coloring the image with her markers, she fussy cut it and added glitter embossing powder.  She added the ribbon to provide a place for her fairy to sit and then added the dragonflies [in an odd numer] to balance her composition and finished it off with a Wink of Stella to their wings.
The image is "Leaning Am" by In Style Stamps, the background paper is from "Indie Bloom" by Basic Grey, the Dragonfly is from PSX and the ribbon is from stash.
This view shows a hint of the wing glitter.

The inside shows her sentiment and
the use of the left over paper from the front.

This card should be eligible for the following 
Gena plays football for her
school and is the only girl
 on her 7th grade team.  She is 
also on the Wrestling Team & plans 
on running Track this spring.
