Royal Fairy Friend

I had another sweet reading fairy from Elizabeth Dulemba printed out and wanted to give her a home. I have so many book lovers in my life I know she’ll find a new home soon. Ah, my FAVORITE color combination – purple and green. They are just so regal and calming. I had fun creating a few of my own embellishments – I hope you like it!

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Week Sketch #13
Another older sketch I’ve been ‘saving’ for the perfect card. That would be my way of saying I missed out on the live challenge and can’t pass up on any of Priscilla’s great sketches.

Color Inspiration ~ 365 Cards Day 124 ~ Shades of Purple

The grid in the background makes me think of books an the circles are the happy faces reading them.

Image Detail
I colored my girl with Copics and added Stickles to her wings for added glitz.
My large faux button is just layered circles with a few dew drops added as ‘holes’. The smaller buttons (the kind without holes) were made with large clear Dew Drops. I adhered them to DP scraps (with a large glue dot) and then just trimmed off the excess. Custom buttons to match my paper – ta da!

I used the leftover pieces of my DP and added a sticker sentiment.
