A Fairy Happy Birthday card (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

This is a bit girly isn't it hehe? She is such a beautiful fairy I think, you can find her at Crafts and Me, she is an image by Hannah Lynn. I tried my hand at giving the lantern a "glow", I think it turned out okay. I have used this image before so I have a photo of the card I made previously just below the new card for comparisons.

  30. Awesome colors used and the die-cutting is superbly done! We are so blessed with your participation in our previous Challenge and would love to have you back for our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you the inspiration of God's Word from Habakkuk 2:3-4 and it says, " For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. “See, the enemy is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness---." Have an awesome week!
