A Fairy Tale.....

Hi all and thanks for visiting me here today!!! =) My card for today shows another cutie from the new 'Forever Young' collection from Belles 'n Whistles. This is  'Fairy Play' and doesn't she look magically? I colored her using my Copics and on her dress I used the feather blending technique which I really love.

My DP is from Basic Grey's Kioshi collection and the sentiment stamp is from Catslife Press. Again I was able to join the MMSC challenge this week which is #61 and had lots of fun playing with Priscilla's sketch!

For the sparkle and twinkle on her wings, flower-tiara and wand I used Stickles and a Sakura glitter pen.

And because I always have problems fitting my cards in regular square envelopes with all the embellies on them I decided I make another card in a box set. Besides that it is also very nice to present the card in a matching box to someone.

This is the outside of the box. The butterfly was cut out using my cricut and the 'Home Accents' cartridge.

The heart punch is from MS and the flower is selfmade using the technique shown in Magnolia Ink #3.

Thanks for taking the time and looking around here. I hope you are having a nice day whatever you are up to. =)
This card is also for sale in my Etsy Shop!
