Growing in a Snow Globe

     Isn't this little fairy just gorgeous!  She's one of the new releases this week from A Day For Daisies.  I was happy with the image, but not the card itself.  It just needed more and I couldn't figure out what more was.  LOL  Of course that could be because I've been a bit distracted this week thinking about the little getaway my hubby planned for us.  Our anniversary was at the end of December, but we rarely go anywhere then because so many things are closed between the holidays.  So as you read this I will probably be strolling along the sugar sand beaches of Florida.  sigh..............
     uh huh huh huh  Back to the card!  :-)  The image is colored with Copics.  Today starts a new challenge at ADFD where we want to see glitter on your projects.  I've used Stickles on her skirt, wings and the flowers in her head dress.  I also put 1/2" strips of Sookwang on the card itself and after removing the protective strip added very fine glitter.
     So pop on over to the ADFD blog and join us for the biweekly challenge starting today.  You might want to scroll down a few posts and check out all the gorgeous cards my friend Dorcas has been making.  Tammy asked her to do some cards with some of her older images and Dorcas has made some absolutely amazing projects.  She is the indisputable "Queen of Coloring on Kraft"!
     Have a fabulous weekend!
