Let the Little Fairy in You Fly!

DS was invited to a birthday party.  I was told that the birthday girl likes Tinkerbell.  I didn't have any Tinkerbell images but I decided to run with the fairy theme.  I bought several Magic Fairy books and pulled out all my fairy stamps.  I let him pick.  I thought my cute Paper Makeup images would be perfect but he liked the older looking fairies from Sweet Pea Stamps better.  We finally settled on this one, "Masked Fairy in Green" as the most appropriate.  I unfortunately had a Wink Stella accident right at the very end, requiring lots of blotting and needing me to cut out the image.  She was then mounted on some old Creative Memories DP.  I fussed endlessly on how to embellish the card and finally when I was ready to give up, the purple butterflies actually fell onto the card.  I had bought them two years ago for DS's Hundred Day display and am reusing them.  Who knew that purple butterflies could be the perfect embellishment.  Anyways, he's thrilled with the card, even if it isn't Tinkerbell.  He's now asked if he can colour some of the fairies again.  He's been talking about how he enjoyed colouring with Mommy's special pens outside with Mommy last year.
