Fairy Dust

     Our lovely and oh so talented DT leader Pat is our hostess this week at Mo's Digital Pencil and she has chosen a theme of  "Pearls and Ribbons".  I decided to play with this super sweet image, "Spring Fairy Aleta".  I tried and tried but just could not get the colors to come out right in my photo.  The ribbon is a darker blue that matches the papers perfectly, but it's super shiny so the color got washed out.  I loaded on the pearls and added some soft yellow chalking around the image that is also hard to see.  The dandelion fluff has Stickles on it too.  Gosh, half my card is invisible.  LOL
     Anyway, we'd love to have you come play along with a Mo image and some pearls and ribbon this week for a chance at winning a $5.00 gift voucher to Mo's store.

Oh Tracy - this is just beautiful. The blues are wonderful and I am going to have to get some of those string pearls. I love the way you tend to split your designer papers up on your cards. I am inspire to try that now. Gives so much more depth to the card. I could go on and on but I will just say your card is fantastic. joann sassy raggedy
