Favorite Bookworm

  Happy Friday!!!  It's time for a new challenge from the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge is: Magical Creatures

And our fabulous sponsor is:

Oddball Art

Here is my card for your inspiration:
I've had this sweet image from Oddball Art for quite a while and finally pulled it out to color it up.  It has a sentiment that goes along with it, but I wanted to use a different one, so I masked out the sentiment when I printed it out.  I cut the panel with a stitched die and colored the image with my spectrum noir markers.  I die cut the banner and stamped the sentiment on it.  For a little fun and sparkle, I added gold glitter pen to the fairy's wings and some glossy accents to her eyeglasses.  You can see it in the photo below:

This card will be for my middle child.  She is a serious bookworm and I think she will love it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the Cut It Up blog for the full details of the challenge and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.
