**Whimsical Fairy Superstar**

Hey everyone! Just a real quick post today.
I played along again with the Diedrich Dare! Wednesdays are such FUN days now seeing the little sketches and challenges Jess' talented kids come up with!
Nicky gave everyone a sketch and he made a doosy! I didnt finish making this card till thursday night...stumped me big time!
here is the sketch...
and here is my card..
I used Spring Fairy digi from The Greeting Farm, colored her with colored pencils. This card ended up in all primary colors!!
Didnt start that way, I usually never use these colors but once I colored the fairy I had to change the dp I had chosen before and get this dp from Marrakech BG line.
For the little astericks in the middle I used ribbon and brads around the image.
The buttons are paper buttons...didnt have the right color so I made them with lemon tart pti cardstock..just punched the circle 4 times and glued them together, punched the 4 holes with my piercing tool then covered with crystal effects.. Really fun way to make your own buttons!!
Stamps Used: Spring Fairy Digi- The Greeting Farm, sentiment-Starstruck-Verve Stamps
Paper Used: Marrakech-BasicGrey, lemon tart, enchanted evening, white-Papertrey ink, riding hood red-SU
ink Used: printer ink
Accessories Used: Colored pencils, 1/2" circle punch, crystal effects-SU, ribbon, brads, paper piercing tool, sakura gelly roll sparkle pen

Hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
Till Later!
