TDS - Fairy Grandmother & DT Challenge

Isn't she hilarious?! When I saw this image at The Digi Shack I knew I had to have her. She just cracks me up. Seriously, I wish I had her last week for my BFF's birthday --- we both turned 30 this year. I saw this and thought of different sent's I could use. One was, "You used your last wish" or "Maybe next year..." LOL or something (I have a hard time coming up with my own sent on a card) so I started looking through some sentiments I received in swaps and saw this one that was just perfect! I love it. I'm a little worried about the wand being cut out like that. Not sure how well this will send through the mail. I might have to keep it for hand delivery only. :)

I was determined to make something for the Digital Tuesday Challenge this week and used Shabby Chic when designing the card.....Not sure if the colors are too bright for Shabby Chic but I distressed the heck out of the edges of the DP and layers for the image. I also sponged some pink ink on the white rectangle and sprayed with shimmer water (I use a little bit of perfect pearls mixed with water in a spritzer) then crunched it up while still damp. I love prima flowers and actually had some colors that matched to use this time. The DP is some that I've been hoarding since I won them at a crop last year. It has different birthday sents on it that are pretty much hidden but I still like it.

I am SO excited for tomorrow's Grand Opening at The Digi Shack. I have the sketch and image in my hot little hands and I know you are all going to love it! I'll have it posted first thing tomorrow morning for you and I hope you'll all play along!

OMG! I have to have her! Seriously!! Wanna share? LOL... she would have been perfect for my MIL's 50th a couple weeks ago. And she'd be great for the hubby's 30th next month! Your card is fabulous. I'll be up bright and early tomorrow to look for the sketch and the image. Can't wait!

I love that her wand is cut out!! BRILLIANT! :D That sentiment is hilarious, I love your ideas as well - especially 'maybe next year' lol!! Your coloring and color combo is gorgeous, so happy and vibrant. I think you did awesome on the shabby chic part! You go GF... even if you are 7 years younger than me. ;)
