Fairy Happy Birthday!

I love coloring fairies and angels. There's nothing more fun than picking out colors and papers for something that is sweet and pretty and has fabulous wings!  For the Crafty Sentiments Challenge Blog this week, I chose this beautiful image named Vinca The Fairy.

I colored this sweet image with Copics and then covered her wings with double stick tape and sprinkled Cool Glitter Ritz completely over them. I used a round die cut by Spellbinders and the scallop die cut by Whimsy around my image. The sentiment is also by Whimsy and I used assorted Marvy punches for them. The three sugary coated jewels in the corner are by Queen & Co. The satin ribbon, and button are from my stash. Here's a close-up picture of this sweet fairy:

The team at Crafty Sentiments Challenge Blog have put together a Bingo board. You all know how to play this...pick a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row and include those items on your project. PLEASE STATE THE ROW YOU HAVE USED IN YOUR POST. As an example let's use my card:  Designer Paper, Die Cut, Sentiment.
