Sprinkle a little twinkle

Hi!  So after making my "brown" card in the previous post, I felt a need for some color.  Hehe.  I think this card came out bright and fun.  It is for a couple of challenges. 

The first is a new challenge blog that I came across called Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge.  The theme for the first challenge is spring and you have to use a pixie, fairy or sprite stamp.

I also used The Greeting Farm's SCS Saturday Sketch #8.

I used TGF's Fairy Eva.  Hehe.  Of course you have to buy the stamps that have the same name as you.  I think this may be the first time I colored her up, though I have stamped her before.  She also now has a mini me in TGF's Fairy Princess clear stamp set.  That would be cute if they were on the same card like a mommy and a daughter.

I did some masking with Fairy Eva.  Also made the sky using PTI's cloud die.  I love how soft the sky turned out.  The sentiment is also from the Fairy Princess set.  I lightly colored in the edges of her wings and added stickles.

Well, today is the last day before the kids go back to school tomorrow.  And it's back to early wake up days so no more late night crafting for me.  I really enjoyed staying up late to craft.  I better not get too carried away blogging today either since I am doing laundry again and got a pot of corned beef on our small stove.  I don't want to forget about them! 

Thanks for reading!
