A Fairy Happy Day

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this 3rd Saturday in June.
I am battling a cold with just coughing symptoms right now. My hubby was sick earlier this week and passed it on to me. Although his symptoms were so mild. I made a chest rub from essential oils and it seems to be helping the cough. It's summertime and who gets a cold this time of year! (LOL)
Anyway, onto my card for today. This one I made for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. There is a new release of dies and I used the Mushroom Fairy Garden to create my card. So here are some details on this card. 
Step 1: I started off by die cutting the pieces for my fairy garden scene. I wanted those colors done first because I was going to sponge the background and I wanted the colors to complement each other.
For the background, I used tumbled glass, broken china, spun sugar and picked raspberry distress inks. When I was satisfied with the color intensity, I misted it lightly with water to get a more muted type look. Perfect for my fairy and her mushroom garden.
Step 2: I am ready to start card assembly. I stamped my sentiment with Stampin'-Up "gorgeous grape ink. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp the "wishing well fairy" set.
I die cut the "wish" word from highland heather cardstock. It's one of the newere Stampin'-Up purple shades.
Mounted the image panel also using highland heather cardstock. Scattered a few sequins and my card is complete.
I was happy how this one turned out.
Sometimes you have an idea in your head and when it translates to paper, it's good. Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time...….God bless.
