Fairy Godmother in Training

     Have you ever wondered how Fairy Godmothers get their skills?  Like any truly great, magical creature such as warlocks or wizards, they are required to go to school and serve as intern/trainees with older, more experienced, fully accredited, Fairy Godmothers.  Yes, it's true!  And, sadly, there are mistakes and mishaps at the famous fairy school, Nowarts, just as there are each school year at Hogwarts.

     The Fairy Godmother Trainee on today's card comes from Bugaboo Stamps.

I was inspired by sketch #498 at Sketch Saturday.

       I colored with ProMarkers, and cut the image with a scalloped circle die from Sizzix.  I found a scrap of bright pink, polka dot dp and added it for a pop of color.  The sentiment was printed, hand cut, and inked on the edges.  I tied one of my bow tie bows, using complementary polka dot ribbon.

     There you are, a fast and simple card design that took about 20 minutes to make after the coloring was done.
