Encouragement


Today's card makes use of a borrowed die (thanks Mary Anne) from SB called Fairy Cierra. The beautiful sentiment is a stamp I won from DRS Designs rubber stamps. I cut the fairy from some Blushing Bride cardstock, and cut a second one from heat-embossed gold cardstock, and interchanged the wing pieces to add some interest. The sentiment was also embossed with gold ep on a white card base. Click the picture to enlarge and you'll see some diamond stickles being sprinkled from the fairy's 2 wands.

I'm sharing this one over at the DRS Thursday challenge #213 which is "hot & cold." I'd say my colors are in the warm category.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Friday!
