Firefly Fairy

Hello! So earlier today I was visiting a bunch of blogs, and I happened across Alex's and Randi's blogs and I saw the cutest little fairies! They were by MelJen's Designs, who was sponsoring the Flutter By Wednesday challenge this week, so I had to go take a look.....I ended up with the Pixie Dust Fairy and the Firefly Fairy in my cart! They were digi images so I got to play right away, and I made this card, which will be my first Flutter By Wednesday challenge card! I just LOVED trying to catch fireflies when I was little. I don't think we have them where I live now....I've certainly never seen one here.

The Details:
Stamp: Firefly Fairy - MelJen's Designs
Paper: DCWV, Prism Cardstock, White for image (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics:
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E02,E08,E09,E18, B91,B95
Clothes: R02,R05,B91,Y000,Y04,Y08
Background: Y000,Y04,Y08, B91,B93,B95,B97,B99
Misc: Stardust Stickles, Ribbon (SU - it was white and I used my Copic B99 to make it blue), Taylors Tiny Twinkles

I hope your day is magical!

This is fabulous and I love how you created the night sky, too! Great coloring of the cute li'l fairy! I always dreamed of catching fireflies but alas, I've never even seen one in real life...I know, it's so sad. ;)
