Fairy Birthday Wishes

      A post today featuring an image from an artist I discovered late last summer and I'm still using images I bought on my first shopping spree in her shop!  I bought quite a few that day and this image is the one which inspired me to do a search and check out what was available. 

      I saw this girl with her tiny fairy friend bringing her a gift and it was on a card made by someone entering a challenge.  I just had to know more about the image and the artist.  I went to her blog, hoping to find a link to the image (or at least the artist, Mariola Budek) but there was nothing.  So I used a search engine, tracked down her store, and bought images and coloring books that first day!  This image can be found in one of her coloring books, called "Cute Friends."

     I colored with my ProMarkers, then used a Sizzix scalloped die to cut the image.  I used a die from Dare 2B Artzy, cut two dp (Recollections), mounted the image onto 1 of them, and used the second one as the background paper, then inlaid the image piece into it.  I found some sheer ribbon in my stash, wrapped the card front and used my bow maker to tie a triple-loop bow and add it.  The sentiment was printed and fussy cut.


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
