Sassy Cheryl's Challenge - Buttons

I created another card for Sassy Cheryl's Challenge. The challenge is to use buttons on your project, and I thought this Sassy Fairy would be perfect with a star button on the end of her wand.

Stamp: Sassy Fairy (Sassy Cheryl's)
Paper: K&Co.
Ink: Ink jet printer, Copics
Accessories: Bows with pearls, toothpick, star button, Stickles, flat-back pearls, Blingz, border punch, Spellbinders Curved Rectangle, CM oval cutter.

For the wand, I used a toothpick covered in Copper Stickles, and a star button covered in Diamond Stickles. I started out cutting my image out with the Curved Rectangle Spellbinders die. However, it did not give quite the feel I was looking for, so I used my CM oval cutter to create more of an oval image to give the feel of a spotlight.

As always it is hard to get a good picture of the shimmer of the bling on a card, but I took this picture with sunlight shining on it trying to capture the shimmer. I used Blingz on her skirt to give a tutu feel. The paper is also really glittery. I created a stage with curtains, cut freehand from my designer paper. I added the bows to "tie back" the curtains.

I really love this because my sister was a dancer and I grew up in a ballet studio. When I made this card, I thought of those years. It brought back some nice memories.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
