Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

I wanted so badly to start on this card last night but my hubby and daughter had already gone to bed and I am NOT quiet when I craft, so I had to bide my time until this morning.
This little fairy is a digital stamp image that I just purchased from Tiddly Inks. I just think she's adorable. She's water colored and Stickled for lots of sparkle. I learned how to do the star base she's sitting on and the beaded ribbon slider from an incredible Norwegian card maker named Marianne. I made the flowers myself with punches and then sugared them with some Diamond Dust. I punched the little stars out with a MS hole punch and then covered them with glue pen and glitter. My eyes are not what they used to be and trying to hold those tiny little things still to glitter them and then pick them up to place them on the card was tough. :)

This is so strange Tracy, I typed a long msg and they won't let me post, and then I restart my computer and just type "test" and it went through. I am going to try again, hope this one go through like the test msg.
