Make a Wish . . .

Hello All!
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
A bit rainy here but could be worse so not complaining!

I've gotten hooked on the new 'magical/mystical' craze
so I think I'll have to put another category in my card boxes for upcoming shows!  LOL

Here's a fun card a created to share with you today . . .

I created the background by first die cutting a circle from masking medium to use for the moon.  After applying it to my watercolor paper panel, I then used Tim Holtz Wilted Violet & Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks for my colors.

Now the fun of creating my scene!

The stamps used on the front are:
Lavinia Stamp - Fuchsia
Lavinia Stamp -Fayllin
Repeat Impressions Flower Border
Marianne Design Silhouette Fairies & Butterflies
Joanna Sheen Fairy Stamps
Stampscapes Leafy Branch

Stamps used on the inside are:
Inkadinkado Beautiful Fairies
Simon Says Stamps (sentiment)

Upon completion, I added drops of white glue and glitter to the 
magical wishes at the end of her wand.

Challenges I'd like to share in are:
Crafty Friends Challenge #112 - Fairies & Fantasy
Daring Cardmakers Challenge - Come Fly with Me
Stamplorations June Challenge - Stamps & Birthdays

Also linking up to:

Well that does it for me today!
We have a birthday party to attend this evening so I'd better get my work done
so I can go and have fun!!

Hope you have a very enjoyable day!  
As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!
