Fairy Fun Friday Challenge #49 -"Oh So Spring" Mid-Week Reminder

Happy Friday everyone! 
I'm so happy this week is almost over! The boys have had so much homework this week, it's crazy how much homework the kids have now days! And it seems like this new school their going to is giving them even more to do everyday! Plus my 7 year old had a science project due on dinosaurs...which I admit was pretty fun, but took us a few days to complete. Didn't help that the little stinker practically made me do the whole thing...lol. I forgot to snap a pic before I sent him off to school with it...so hopefully hubs will get off early enough tonight to attend his science fair. I'm hoping next week will be a little less busy so I can get some "work" done...I haven't had much time lately to craft. Because not only do my 2 older boys keep me busy with school stuff, but so does my 4 year old. He has been going through a tantrum, screaming, yelling, hitting, arguing and cries at the drop of a hat stage for the past month and acting like a 2 year old...so yeah...it's been rough. I think I may need to call "Nanny 911"!!...lol!

Anyways, I'll stop boring you and get to the card...lol! 
Today I have designed a card to remind everyone that you still have a week left to get your card in for the "Oh So Spring" challenge over at "Fairy Fun Fridays". And what a fun challenge this has been...we have gotten so many lovely entries so far and we want to keep them comin'...so here's a little more inspiration for you to get your mojo flowin'!


The image I used is called "Cute Chicks" and can be found in the "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop HERE. I just love this adorable image and had so much fun coloring it in! And I'm actually pretty proud of this one...because I think my coloring is getting a little better! I created the sentiment myself and will have it and a few other variations to share at the end of the week..so be sure to stop back by my blog to snag them up!


I used some glossy accents to her cute little glasses and some "Stickles" to sparkle up the image a bit. And I'm just loving these flowers and beautiful gem trees I got from "WOC"...I can never have enough bling...lol!


I kept the inside simple to show off the adorable DP I used... 


CARD INGREDIENTS:
PAPERS: Textured cardstock in blush pink and glittery textured cardstock in cool grey all from "DCWV". Design paper is from "Recollections" and "KiMemories".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is a digi stamp and is from "Prairie Fairy Designs" and the sentiment is my own computer generated text.
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Ink from "Tim Holtz" used to sponge around the edges of the image and sentiment.
EMBELLISHMENTS: White lace and satin ribbon, Rhinestones, lavender acrylic pearls, and all flowers and wired gemstone trees are from "Wild Orchid Crafts (WOC)"
TOOLS: Sewing machine and "Spellbinders" machine w/ scalloped ovals dies.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with lilac color thread. Image was 3-D foam mounted. "Stickles" glitter glue and glossy accents were added to the image for even more sparkle and depth
