Birthday Fairy

This is a 4 1/2"x6" card. I used a dark brown cardstock for the base, then cut some blue cardstock 1/4" smaller and some kraft cardstock 1/4" smaller than the blue. I embossed the kraft cardstock layer with the Victoria embossing folder. I adhered them all together and wrapped it with two pieces of pink ribbon. The fairy was stamped on white cardstock. I then colored it with some Prismacolor colored pencils and added some glam pink and turquoise Stickles. I used pop-dots to adhere my fairy to the card. I then doodled in a trail for her which I covered with cinnamon Stickles. I added three blue flower buttons and finished it all off by stamping the sentiment in jumbo java ink by Tsukineko.I made this card for these challenges:
