Make a Wish

 Wow, hard to believe July is half over already, isn't it and doesn't it leave you wondering where did it go?   It is just flying by!
Anyway, my card today is made using a stamp set I won from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps June release hop.  I was so thrilled to get this set, which is called Flirty Fairies 1.  The set includes 3 of these sweet little fairies plus a few sentiments, including the one I've used here.  In case you haven't already seen it, she's just released a new set called Old Hollywood and it's got some fun images like Gene, Lana, Marilyn, Eliza, Debbie and Katherine plus the collection is on sale right now.  Yep, ordered mine this morning.  Also, there is also a DT and GD call right happening right now at the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge Blog
Anyway, back to my card.  I used First Edition Love Letter paper, the ribbon is from Whimsy Stamps and the pearls, rhinestones and charm are from the stash.  I used Copics to colour the image (I don't know what happened and why I didn't notice it before but apparently fairies have mustaches!! I should have done a little more blending) and then added the Tiara Stickles around the edges and Star Dust to her wings.  
Copic colours are:  Dress - R89, R85, R81;  Skin - E13, E11, E00 & E000; Hair E31, E33, E35, E08
Challenges:
Oozak - Bright Colours
Stampacular Sunday - Wings & Bling

So very pretty, Marilyn! I really like that lovely green ribbon! The image is adorable! I think there's an unwritten rule somewhere that if you have an antennae you must also have a mustache! Didn't you know that? lol Yes, the days are definitely flying by!...Nancy :o)
