Playing along...

Aloha! With the holiday weekend I had some time to create a "just for fun" card! Gotta admit I haven't outgrown loving to color images by hand and this "Birthday Fairy Lee" is just so much fun! She's colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. Things are glittered up with a Spica clear pen. The patterned paper is SU! Big Top Birthday and I love the bright colors! It ended up looking a bit Fourth of July with the red, white and blue and the stars but I still think it's fun. Here's some challenges I was inspired by for this one:

1. allsorts challenge blog - Celebration of Nations: The red, white and blue, and stars remind me of the US flag
2. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - celebration
3. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - birthday
4. Crafty Cardmakers - no floral embellishments
5. Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges - anything goes + digi
6. Digi Doodle Shop 's Best - embossing
7. Eat Sleep Stamp - sketch
8. Flutter By Wednesday's - bright colors (+ fairy)
9. Incy Wincy Designs - bold & brights
10. Mo’s Challenge - clean and simple (+ Mo image)
11. Paper Makeup Stamps - a fairy nice day
12. Scrap-Creations - glitter
13. Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - texture please
14. The ABC Challenge - happy birthday
15. Totally Gorjuss - star

Here's hoping you have a wonderful week and see you back on Wednesday for my 365 Cards sample!
Aloha,

WOW! Beautiful colors and with your talent the image matches perfectly! The Birthday Fairy reminds me of my Baby Kim and getting so excited about her birthday which is coming up in less the month BTW. And that cupcake is making me really hungry so I guess I better scoot and get dinner ready...
Love, SAM aka MOM
