Believe in Fairies

Wow, it seems it's been a while since I've posted anything...I promise, I have been busy. In fact, life is crazy-busy right  now!!! Between work (yep, that dirty 4-letter word) and projects I have to do, I've kept myself running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, hee-hee! Here's a card I made last night for a challenge at one the yahoo groups, CraftyCardCreators.  We were given a sketch to follow and this is what I came up with. I thought that if I  made a card that I didn't really have to make, it might relax me a bit - it worked!! But alas, today is another day and the card is done so now I have to get back to some projects with deadlines (UGH!!)  I'll post some of those as I finish them this week.   Anyhoo, back to the card I made.  But first let me give you a little helpful advice, if you have a pair of sunglasses around, you might just want to put them on!! This card is BRIGHT!!! I used PTI's Harvest Gold and Raspberry Fizz as the focal colors and some digi papers from......well that I don't remember :( The image is from Lili of the Valley and I think it's called Pom-Pom. She's just a cutie-pie, don't you think? I used some of my PTI felt and my MFT dies to create the rolled daisy and roses.  Yeah, I know what you're saying, I really need to take a class on coloring with my Copics!  I don't seem to be getting any better with them and I really am practicing! I'll just have to keep trying. Oh yeah, you notice the clouds??? I followed a tutorial from Bev over at her All The Things I Love blog. My clouds aren't nearly as good as hers but I'll keep trying at this too!
Oh yeah, I added a pom-pom for her wand end...cute, eh?  And then of course, I couldn't leave the card naked, so here's a peek of the inside...
So, glad I warned you to wear sunglasses? Trust me, in person this is a very bright card!!!!  I guess this just goes to my card stash because I don't really have anyone in particular to send it to. I made it "just because".  Would love to hear what you think about it!
Happy Sunday everyone and have a fun and safe week:)
