Magical Birthday

My oldest is turning 8 tomorrow!  I can't believe it; where has the time gone??  I used this super cute "Taylorbell" image from Emma Canning.  Printed it out twice, once on white card stock and once on vellum from which I cut out only the wings.  I wanted to give them a translucent look as if they were real fairy wings.  I added a bit of silver glitter glue for sparkle, but it made them curl right up, so I had to back them with the original wings that I had already cut off.  But it still gives a neat look and looks a bit more dimensional as I glued the body on top of the vellum wing layer.  I added a smattering of gold stars that are actually leftovers from a border die.  It gives the look of a bit of fairy dust coming from her wand.  And I added one to her hair for a little headband.  Oh, yeah, I also added a sheet of vellum to the pink doily paper to tone down the color a bit and make it less distracting behind the image.
 I masked off part of the sentiment and added it to both the outside and inside of the card with a few more of those shiny gold stars.  I think she'll love it!
