A Fairy Happy Birthday by Dana Warren

Hello AI fans!!

Dana here today with a Birthday card! You can never have too many Birthday cards, right? 

I started with these black chevron pieces that were left over from a different project. They have been hanging out on my desk for awhile and i decided its time to use them!! 

For the background i pulled out a white card base and used a purple distress ink and ink applicator to ink up the card base. Next i flicked water all over and then let it dry.

Meanwhile, i stamped the front Fairy Spinner on white card stock and colored her with Copic markers. I used a little (ok, really a lot! hehehe!) Wink of Stella on her dress, shoes, wand, wings, earrings and hat!

Then i used the matching Fairy Spinner Die to cut out the front fairy. I also cut a small banner from white card stock and stamp the sentiment from the set.

Then its all just a matter of assembling all the elements. First i adhered the black chevron pieces on my inked background. Then i added the fairy and banner with foam tape!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day!!
