Happy Friday!

I hope that everyone had a good week and is looking forward to the weekend. I know that I am. I will be looking at fencing tomorrow and hopefully getting it put up tomorrow too. I am also working on a special project and hope to have that finished by Sunday evening. I will post it as soon as it is completed.

Here is a birthday card I made for my boss. I used a fairy because she collects them.
I didn't start off with anything specific in mind other than to use the fairy stamp that I had. I auditioned several different papers until I decided upon the MB Provence and then I stamped the fairy with VM Wheat and heat embossed with pearl embossing powder. I then used Twinkling H2Os to paint her. Then I used some VM Pretty Petunia to darken the edges and some VM Thatched Straw on the inner edges of the Pretty Petunia to lighten it up just a touch. I cut my other two pieces of paper and inked the edges with VM Jumbo Java then put a couple of spots of double sided adhesive so the layers would stay together and I sewed around the edges. I then mounted the three sewn together layers to the base card. I added a touch of glitter to the center of the little flowers with the copic spica glitter pen.

Stamp: Studio G
Ink: Versamagic Wheat, Versamagic Jumbo Java, Versamagic Pretty Petunia, Versamagic Thatched Straw
Paper: Memory Box Provence, Bazzill and DCWV
Accessories: sewing machine, rotary cutter and mat, pearl embossing powder, twinkling H2Os,
copic spica clear glitter pen, heat gun
Finished card is 5.5 x 5.5

I hope that the photo isn't too dark. It's difficult for me to tell until I see my posts on a different computer as mine has a fairly bright screen.

Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend!
