Here is my take on  this weeks Sketch :

I used the New Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime paper collection. This paper collection has such great Spring colors and designs. My main image is using a piece from the frame die-cut sheet. There are so many cute fairies and I seem to be on a Fairy phase as several of my previous cards and projects are just that. I loaded my card up with my new product by our Monthly Sponsor Lindy's stamp Gang. For the Martha Stewart stamped butterfly I used magical powders and my water pen to give it additional color and shimmer. I sprayed some white lace trim with a combination of Moon shadow mist in Treasure Island aqua and Starburst spray in Delphinium turquoise. The crinkle ribbon woven through is some I purchased from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe. (I love this ribbon)  I edged all my papers with the Tibetan Poppy teal Starburst stain as you will see best in the photo below. All these products have great shimmer but it's so hard to photograph.

To give my fairy wings Extra Pizazz I colored with my paint brush using the Dalphinium turquoise starburst spray. Additional accenting with my white gel pen gives it even more character. 

I was even able to use some of the Spray on my White Wild Orchid Craft flowers so they matched perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by Have a Happy Crafty Day and I look forward to you joining us at the
 Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!
