Fairy Celebration for the Pals.....

Hello everyone: I'm a little late posting my card, I had some running around this morning and this stuff took a bit longer than expected, then my daughter called me to see if I could go pick up my granddaughters after Summer Orchestra practice and, since I was fairly close, I did.
But anyway, last Monday, I received my SU order with one of my most favorite sets in the new catalog, the Fairy Celebration, which I know you'll agree, it's just beautiful.
So, using the fabulous sketch from The Pals Paper Arts, by Lisa Ann Bernard, I made this card.


This little Faeries just stole my heart the second I laid eyes on them when I opened my catty, I immediately marked the page because I wanted to order this set as soon as the catalog went live. 
The wait was horrible!!!!! so, in the mean time,  I browsed the pages of the catty that morning, savoring a cup of coffee and cake and kept marking more sets that I knew I was going to get. 
On June 1st. I placed my order, I think it was like 6am. and then, just patiently waited.
I stamped this sweetie onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. I added a bit of Wink of Stella to her wings and colored the dots on them with gold gel pen.  


The sentiment comes with the set and I just love it!!! so true for a lot of situations in life. I stamped it on Vellum with Versafine Onix Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, because I didn't want to cover any part of the Fairy or the pattern paper from Lili of the Valley, I added 4 Rhine Stones in soft Purple to attach the Vellum to the panel.
The flower on the bottom corner was cut with the new Botanical Builder framelits, this is another fantastic addition to my craft room.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Pears" and the little flowers on the corner are from the retired "Flowering Fields", such pretty little flowers.
Here is the sketch that inspired my card.
