Fairy Clarabelle Birthday Wish

One of my favorite artists is
Annie Rodrigue,
who creates for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

This is "Clarabelle" from Annie's line of faeries,
released earlier this year at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.

I wanted to keep a very summery feel to this card.
I used some green and pink distressing inks to 
distress my card in a bright, less vintage way. I also used the
same inks to paint the background around the fairy. 

I destashed with this cool, epoxy clip which I have had way too long.
Looks good and adds that much needed sentiment.
I used my scissors and a sanding block to rip and distress all of the
edges on each of the layers.

Lastly, I destashed a bit more and used these flocked
brads. Adds nice texture and interest to the card. 

I would like to enter this card in the current challenges at
