Three Wishes

Hello Friends!

I have been trying to clean up my craft room and what a mess it is!!  As I was cleaning up I came  across this cute little image From The Little Paper Shop called Angel, however she is a fairy in my mind because angels don't carry wands!  Duh! Everybody knows only fairies, good witches and Harry Potter can carry a wand!  I stamped her a few times so I could give her a double layer of wings and pop her legs up for more dimension.  She was colored up with Copics and perched on a cotton ball that I stretched out and adhered to a Spellbinder's Oval that has been sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I added some micro fine glitter for some extra sparkle, Stardust Stickles to her wings and some Gold Gelly Roll pen to her wand. The sentiment is from the Kraftin' Kimmie - Three Wishes Set.

I kept the layout simple with some Dots embossing that I lightly sponged with Memento Angel Pink.  I just could not wait to play with my new MFT Dienamics Beautiful Bows die!  I absolutely love it!  I sponged the edges with Memento Rose Bud and added some rhinestones.

    You're right, I can't think of any reason an angel would need a wand. LOL Your card is just darling and the bow is fabulous. Looks like die that needs to be added to my list. Ugh!
    So, a tree decorated on Halloween...well, you beat me by three days with that one. We can't help ourselves, can we? :-)
    Hold that Diet Dr. Pepper in the frige for me. Maybe I can pop in one day.

  18. El dahling, these are gorgeous cards for sure. I'm especially intrigued by your bow die. Wont that flaten when mailed? If it does, I wonder what it looks like when the recipient opens it. Your paint mixing is spectacular! You and your bright ideas keep me totally mesmerized! Over and out. Huge hugs. The US didnt do well last night, did they? Too bad it also affects canadian economy.


Thank you for your comments, I read and appreciate each one - you make my day!
