Card Kit Fun!

It has been so busy around here, which accounts for my lack of posting!

A while ago, I was really getting into the card kit swaps. I ended up with quite a collection of all sorts of kits. And when I'm in a funk, its a great way to get my mojo going again. So - the other day when I needed some inspiration, I reached into my stash and pulled out this kit. Here is what the contents had in it:

The kit consisted of a cute little fairy, and sentments - with some great papers and embellies... I pulled out some copics and here is what I ended up with.. whatcha think? I went a little outside of my comfort zone. I realized when looking through old cards that i'd made, that I rarely use more than one design of patterned paper on my cards. Well, this lovely kit helped me get over that one! Don't you just LOVE the matching ribbon?????!!!!!!

I needed to snazz up the wings, and I'm pretty sure the inclusion of "fairy dust" in the kit was meant JUST for this purpose, so I used some crystal effects and shook on the sparkle. I love this stuff! Its not as messy as glitter, but gives you a twinkle all the same! here is a bit of a close up on the wings....

Thank you to all the kit swap hostesses over the last oh.. year and half I guess....!
Thanks for stopping by!
