Fairy Fun Friday- DT- Use a Star!!

For my Fussy & Fancy Creation click HERE! or just scroll down.

*******************************************

So, I ask you.................what is the first thing that crosses your mind when you see a challenge that says USE A STAR?
My first thought.......OH S'tar' !!! lol
Whatever am I going to do?
Where am I gonna get a star?
ICK< ick yuck......
Then my MOJO kicked in & I am pleased to present you with my creation for Fairy Fun Fridays (**) this fortnight where our challenge to you is to (yup you guessed it).......


USE A STAR


This is my first time using one of the Prairie Fairy's(**) new images......it is called Candy Cane Fairy & the set includes 2 digi images & a set of 8 sentiments for $4.50 (Cnd). The sentiments I used here are found in this set too, just to give you an idea.
What I have done to the Candy Cane Fairy, is taken away her candy cane that she was standing on & replaced her footing with a ribbon of stars (available at Really Reasonable Ribbons).



As you can see in the picture above, I have hidden the remainder of the sentiment in behind the die cut shape. The picture below just shows the sentiment sitting beside the card.



Now what about this fantastic little star you ask?
It is a chipboard star from CTMH. It was originally white, but I sponged it with Navy Blue distress ink, then heat embossed some silver swirls onto it. It is actually a perfect fit for my star card!
Per usual I have colored my little fairy with watercolor pencils, baby oil & blending stumps (except her skin tones...those are copics). I glittered up her wings to match the other silvery blings on the card!
The Christmas sheet music is from a fellow blogger (I just tried to find her e-mail from when she sent it to me, but I may have deleted it)....she downloaded it off the internet & then sent it to me. NO ANGEL POLICY. It is totally legit & is not law breaking by any means (at least that's what she said-lol).

Now head on over to the newly old Fairy Fun Friday (**). What I mean by that is that The Fairy (**) has returned to blogger. She used to be wordpress, but didn't quite find it to be home. "There's no place like blogger! ". So head on over, replace your URL links ((i've marked them with (**) above)) to show the new ones & BTW The Fairy (**) has ginormous candy up for grabs RIGHT HERE!!!
REMEMBER- Change all your links (**)!!!

Flutter by Wednesday- open challenge
All Sorts - monochromatic
OSAAT- bling it up
Pollycraft Mondays- chipboard
