Okay 3rd time is a charm I hope!!! I tried posting this twice already.. the first time internet explorer crashed and the 2nd my battery died before I could get to the cord.

I made this card today for my best friend while the kids were napping. When they got up we also made cards from them ( one is my 1 year old and the other is her 1 year old) where I brayered acrylic paint onto their hand and pressed onto the card front and since her little guy just would NOT open his hand back up once I put the paint on and I couldnt get a good hand print I did his foot print too. Then they coloured the inside and I wrote their names in crayon in each of their cards. She loved them.

Anyways, onto the card I'm actually posting haha.
The stamps are all from "Wishes and Dreams" by Alicia K. from Gina K. Designs.
The image is coloured with memento ink pads, Crayola IQ markers, elmers paintastic markers, and Touch marker (these are similar to copics). I muted all of th colours though by putting the colour onto an acrylic block and either watering it down for the ink pads, crayola and paintastic markers or using my colorless blender for the touch markers. I also couldn't resist adding a little glitter with my sakura pens too!!
Paper is Neenah white from papertemptress, pink from Michaels done with "metallic pop" technique from technique junkies, red is from a package of paper from the dollarstore that I've had for a long time.
The ribbon is either michaels or walmart... not sure as I've had it for so long.
Oh.. not sure if you can tell from the pic but the fairy's hair and a bit of her wing is sticking out beyond the circle as well... love this "outside the box" technique!!
Hope you like it!
