A Fairy Happy Birthday!

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne and today I'm featuring a card made with the new Magical Garden dies.  These adorable dies are 25% off on the website for a limited time.
I'm trying to make more birthday cards this year and these cute fairies went perfectly with the sentiment I had.  One more done!  For the layout I used the sketch challenge this week at Splitcoaststampers and for the colors I chose some designer paper and used the colors from it.  I thought the clouds and sprinkles went well with the fairies.
I started by cutting the pieces in white and vanilla card stock, using ink and sponge daubers to color the pieces.  I used the vanilla for the fairies skin and the under part of the mushroom cap.
I assembled and glued my pieces together on a silicone mat.  This allows the assembled element to dry and prevents it from sticking to my paper or table.
I decided to make an A6 card - 4 1/2 x 6 inches.  I cut one panel this size, a strip 1 1/2 x 6, a rectangle using the largest of the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle dies, and a white square using the third largest of the Stitched Squares dies.
I then heat embossed my sentiment in white on the scalloped panel.
I glued the white square on top and added my fairies and floral pieces.  The fairies and mushroom caps are covered in several coats of Wink of Stella.  I used gold Wink of Stella to add a few "drips" from the watering can.
I adhered the panel and the strip to the card base along with a piece of ribbon.  Then I used foam tape to pop the panel up from the front of the card.
Since fairies are magical creatures that seem to beg for sparkle, I added a few sequins to the scene.  In this photo you can really see the Wink of Stella.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Don't forget to stop by the store and check out all the new dies!
