A Fairy Happy Birthday to You!




Ok, yet another image to top the cuteness richter scale! This is Tara from Victoria Case, isn't she precious?! Victoria's gifts do not stop with her awesome talent, she's also very generous....this was a FREEbie from her challenge blog...how cool is that!This week the challenge was this lovely sketch! The challenges are posted on Thursday, you'll have to check it out!!
I colored Tara and her little friend with prismas and used K&co paper! Her eyes and wings shine with crystal effects. The swirls are sizzix and the retro flower has been CB'd and a glitter brad added. The sentiment is from SU! upsy daisy set. I, once again used the out of the box technique, I told you I was going thru a phase! :)
Here are the other challenges...you knew there were more didn't you?
Colour Create~pink/purple/green & die cuts.
ABC~S for summer.
Crafty Creations~garden theme.
Flutterby Wed~use a flutter.
Simon Says~a celebratory card...The Simon Says blog is celebrating it's first birthday! Happy Birthday Simon Says!
Hope you're enjoying your Wednesday! Praying Peace and Blessings over you!
