Celebrate Today

Hey, hey, it's Friday! We've got a long weekend and I am just giddy with excitement! I hope to accomplish many things this weekend. I have a loooong To-Do List so I'm going to be brief.

I am sharing a card for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge entitled, My Sentiments, Exactly. The challenge is to use a Mo's image and any sentiment on your card.

click to enlarge.
digital image: Fairy 2(Mo's Digital Pencil)
stamp set: Round and Round Limited Edition(Papertrey Ink)
card stock: Fresh Asparagus(GinaK Designs)  Vintage Cream(Papertrey Ink)
patterned paper: Once Upon a Springtime Collection(G45)
ink: Olive(CTMH)   Vintage Photo Distress Ink(Ranger)
other: Copic markers   wrinkled ribbon and button(Memrie Mare)   Dazzling Diamonds(SU!)   Square Nestabilities(Spellbinders)  oval and scallop oval punches(SU!)

I chose Fairy 2. I love her because she reminds me of me! She's from Mo's Real Women Collection...nice name, right? *wink, wink* I've used this image in the past and you can see that card HERE.  I printed her onto Vintage Cream card stock, colored her with Copics, and added a sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds on her wings. The background paper is from the Once Upon a Springtime collection by Graphic 45, my bow is made with  ribbon from Memrie Mare, and I used the button from the packaging of the ribbon. The focal image has been die cut with Square Nestabilities and sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink. I stamped my sentiment with Olive ink, lightly sponged the edges, then punched it out with an oval punch, matted it with a scallop, then adhered it with dimensional adhesive. You can see by the little side peek, that I finished off the inside of the card, as well. That extra touch makes the whole thing just a bit more special  in my opinion.

Well, that's all I have for you today. Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping in...

Just a thought. :)
