Fairy Birthday Card - TMS #489

Good day and happy Tuesday! Today at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have LJ's favorite sketch from 2018 and she picked sketch #480 from last November. You can see the original post HERE. This sketch really is perfectly made to use scraps. When using paper from a 6x6 paper pad I always have strips leftover from cutting background paper. It didn't take me long to find three pieces that coordinated from the same paper pad. All the design team inspiration and challenge details can be found HERE. You have until Sunday at 8 pm EST to link your creation. I hope to see your card in the gallery!

The last time I used this sketch I made a card for Thanksgiving. This time I wanted something with hints of Spring. After deciding on the Brentwood Owl Fairy image by Jessica Lynn Original I searched for the right papers in my stash. The three strips used came from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful paper pad by American Crafts (2017). The papers were adhered to a piece of Soft Sky cardstock by Stampin' Up!. Copic markers were used to color the image and the image was fussy-cut and adhered flat to a die cut circle. The birthday sentiment comes with the stamp set and I cut the stamp between the words so it would fit inside the circle. A gold metallic twine bow finishes off the card and that's it.
