Be Like the Flower

Coffee of the Day - White Chocolate Coconut

Today is a great new challenge over at the Digi Makeover - pastel colors. perfect for the spring flowers, little bunnies, and happy chicks we all seem to be using on our cards at this time of year!

My card is fairly CAS, for me anyhow. I chose to use the Sprout Fairy image along with a sentiment from Create with TLC. papers are from the Basic Grey Kioshi collection, little flower is Prima, and buttons are vintage. her wings are coated in distress stickles. I used my crumb cake marker to add little accent dots around the sentiment banner. a few purple rhinestones were also added for a tiny bit more sparkle! :)

I haven't given up on getting my shops open.... I had asked someone to design a logo for me and am still waiting to hear back from them with photos. a few other details to get through that are taking longer than I anticipated, especially since I can't devote 100% of my time to the computer. but we will get there eventually! :)  I hope all of you like the fun things we have planned for it. some cool little antique goodies, but I'm REALLY gonna have a hard time parting with the fab vintage buttons I've come across!

thank you also to the glorious, kind, supportive comments left by so very many of you! it means so much to me! :)
