Cute Card Thursday #125 - Tree-mendous

The Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week was to make a card using trees and/or leaves. I made a fairy-themed card using Bubbling Tilda.

 
You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund:



I found these gold prismatic leaves at a little gas station/store in Leadville, Colorado. They were in the dollar bin. I knew I could find a use for them. I came up with the idea of a card with a fall fairy blowing the leaves off the tree.  If you look at her horn, you can actually see a part of a leaf at the end of it instead of a bubble. I wanted to give the feel that she is actually blowing the leaves from the horn. It is hard to see the shine (due to questionable lighting), but I added Stickles to her wings.

I am so glad you stopped by today. I hope you will join the challenge at Cute Card Thursday.

I love that little fairy girl.
I have thought of her several times this week and I had to come back and look again.
She is very inspiring to me.
If a picture can do that.
Thanks
