Birthdays and Fairies at Aud Sentiments

     Sadly, this is my last DT card for Aud Sentiments.  All my travel and absence this month and next make it impossible to continue for an additional term.  I'll miss all the wonderful ladies over there (sniff.)  But our new challenge theme is "Fairies" and our sponsor is Sweet Pea Stamps, who provided images for the DT to use.  The one I used is called "Dragon Keeper."

     I chose to do a 'birth' day card, celebrating the day of arrival for a new one.   After all, what birthday is more special than the actual day you're born?  I chose my three favorite colors for baby cards - pastel blue, pink, and green.  The image is colored with chalk markers for soft colors and I added glitter to the fairy's wings.  I fussy cut the image.

     I added several die cuts and punched pieces for embellishments (Cheery Lynn, Spellbinders, & Memory Box) and used sparkly, metallic cord in pink, blue, and green.  Everything was layered onto a kraft card base.

Oh this is so sweet and it reminds me of the new baby I got today. A neighbour found an injured baby pigeon on the road last night. She turned it over to me today and I am feeding it cornmeal gruel with an infant medicine syringe.
