Thank You Fairy Much ~ CYP Challenge #190

To celebrate Thanksgiving with our American friends this week, our new theme at Craft Your Passion Challenges is Give thanks/Thanksgiving. We had our Canadian Thanksgiving back in October but since gratitude is so good for the soul, I'm happy to celebrate again :) Our wonderful sponsor this week is The Sugar Kissed Cottage and I was lucky enough to play with this gorgeous little vintage fairy. The Sugar Kissed Cottage has such lovely and sweet vintage images. I coloured Sally the fairy using Prismacolor pencils...I know you are I added silver metallic gel pen to her shoes, tiara and wand star and i Icicle Stickles to the dots on her dress, as is befitting a fairy.

The background was kept simple with layered fishtail flags overlapped by layers of scalloped circles. The papers came from Recollections Habitat paper stack as well as my scrap bin. White paint pen was added to the background in the form of faux stitching and other doodling in order to add detail and tie the mix of papers together. Two mulberry flowers were stacked and topped with a resin flower with a bling center. Narrow silver cord was made into a triple bow and adhered behind the flower stack. The letter stickers are both puffy and sparkly for added dimension and shimmer.

Thank you for joining Sally and me today. If you get a chance, pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the lovely creations by the rest of our talented team. It's always a treat to see what they make in response to the challenges. I hope you'll be inspired enough to join us in our Give Thanks/Thanksgiving challenge. If you are celebrating Thanksgiving this week, have a wonderful time with family and friends.
