Another little card today....

Today I had an hour to make a card for my neighbour. It is her Birthday.
Not much time - so I used an image I had coloured with my Copics many months ago. The image is by: Diane Duda from Sugar Nellie. She is called 'Believe'. So no colours to tell you once again. This will stop :o)
The card stock is from Stampin'Up. The pink is: Pink Passion and the blue is: Tempting Turquoise. Design paper is a little piece I found in my scrap pile.
After making the card ( 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" ) I took my other pieces of paper and put them through my Zutter Distrezz-It-All.
All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo. The little image is mounted on two other small pieces and then onto 3 D tape to raise it up. The two bright coloured flowers are from Prima and the brad is from DCWV.
I used Crystal Lacquer on the two crowns and the cats nose; Diamond Stickles on the star on her wand and on the dots on her dress. I wish now I hadn't put it on the polka dots because you can no longer see the shading I did on them. Then because I wanted to use my new Stampin'Up: Silver Glass Glitter I put in on all four wings. This was a mistake because it is far too big and heavy for these little wings. However it was easy and quick to use so I will use it again for something bigger.
This is the result:

Thanks for taking a look :o)
Love, Candy

Hi Candy, I love your card. The wings look like they could fly right off the paper so I don't think you did anything wrong. In fact, you've intro'd me to a new product! ROTFL!!!

Hi sweetie,
Cute card! I don't have any of that glass glitter yet but I think I need some, don't I? LOL Your coloring is so good and I'm sure your neighbor loved the card. I'm so happy that you are getting a chance to get back to your cards again.
Hugs, Barbara
