Have A Special Birthday

Good morning friends!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend.  We have been getting so much rain in our area and the weather report shows rain almost every day for the next week.  Geez, I think I need to get started on that ark!  Well I know you didn't stop by to hear me complain about the weather so let me share a card I made using one of the new Sugar Nellie fairies.

This little sweetie is called A Little Bit Of Gossip ... isn't she adorable?  I used my copics and colored pencils to color her and then added some Glamour Dust to her flowers and wings.  I also added some Glossy Accents to the little lady bug.  My papers are by Maja Design (thanks Elaine) and they're such gorgeous papers that I really want to just hoard them.  But I've been trying to make myself use them lol.  I added a bow, some pearls, and a birthday sentiment to finish my card.  You can find this lovely fairy over at Funky Kits.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita
