Where's my fairy godmother?

Today begins a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and this time the topic is COME FLY WITH ME (something that can fly on your image). Now that's pretty easy considering it can be just about anything with wings!  As I was thinking about the topic, I realized that one of the images at The Paper Shelter is called My Wish List and I thought she'd be perfect for this challenge and to be a birthday card since she's holding a "wish list" and I had the birthday sentiment "Make a Wish". Now, I don't know about you, but as I made this card, took photos of it, and posted it, I find myself singing the songs from Rogers & Hammerstein's musical "Cinderella". I love that musical so much...the one with Leslie Ann Warren and Stuart Damon and looked forward to seeing it on television every year. I like it so much that I recently bought this 1965 DVD!


I used my Magnolia swirl die and cut the pink and blue swirls out of paint chips. I used a Martha Stewart border bunch and a punch on the sentiment from EK. I colored my background with pink and blue Pebbles Pearlescent chalk using a white pompom.  My flowers are from Wild Orchid and byThita.  On my fairy I used Susie Sparkle Crystal Rainbow glitter on her wings, Cotton Candy Stickles on her petticoat, and Gold Glitter Ritz on her crown. She even has a dot of Glossy Accents on her eyeglass lenses! I added a touch of Star Dust glitter on the flowers.

How do you like my bow?  It tied beautifully and is such pretty ribbon. I'd been saving it for the right card...and this was it! I'm loving my blue palette right now...maybe because it's so hot where I live and the color blue is a cool color? I added a pastel pink with the blue making this card very girly and a favorite color combination for me. After looking at it again I realize...there's no white on this card, which is so unlike me (the chalk was fabulous to use to color my white paper)! Looking below, you can see the detail on this image. To color the little fairy I used my new Ott light that has a magnifier with it. Seriously, I needed a magnifier to color this tiny fairy! My card is 6" x 6".

  12. Another awesome card, Gail -- this really turned out beautifully. The chalking is subtle, but striking, your flowers are cute, the ribbon is very pretty and you've used the perfect amount of glitz and glitter. Of course, your image is adorable and colored up great. As for my wish, I'm thinking that I'm in need of a fairy godmother !!
