Birthday Fairy

It's been too long since I posted last.  With my son no longer napping I'm finding it hard to get away to my craft area.  :-(.  Oh well.  I did manage to get crafty last night and I completed one card for my sister-in-laws birthday and started another.  The second one isn't going well and it may end up being scrapped and I'll start over.  The birthday card turned out pretty good I think.




She loves fairies so, of course, I used one.  :-). I coloured her in with my Spectrum Noir markers and the fussy cut her out.  Fussy is right.  Almost too fussy.  To make the background I stamped my grass and coneflowers with versamark ink and embossed in clear.  Then sponged the yellow, pink and green.  Next I stamped the grass and coneflowers in yellow sponged with some pink.  Then the sentiment at the bottom.  Layered some green paper and attached to white card base.

I'm entering this into the MUSE challenge this week.  I was inspired by the card a little bit in my colours used (well, the green anyway.  There is a bit of purple too in the fairy wings) and a little bit in the layout.  This will be the first card I'm entering for this new challenge blog.  I've been following along but just couldn't find the time to get a card done.  :-)
Here's the inspiration card:



I think I will try and fix my other card or redo it sometime today.  Hopefully I'll get the chance.  :-).  I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Supplies:  stamps:  (fairy) Kolette Hall,  (grass and coneflower) Stampin' Up!, (sentiment) Recollections, paper:  (white) Recollections, (green) Dear Lizzy, ink:  (yellow) Marvy, (pink) unknown, (green) Stampin' Up!, (black) StazOn, markers are Spectrum Noir.
