Reading Fairy...

If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all. -Oscar Wilde


Happy Friday everyone!! Wow am I glad this week is over! I hope to get some yard work done this weekend while the weather is sunny and mild. I will probably end up doing what this little fairy is doing instead though, I am finishing up Book 2 of the Outlander Series and have the new Stephanie Meyer Novella to read before Eclipse comes out on the 30th!!

I really glittered this card up...I Love stickles!!! :) I used my new Polka Dot Cuttlebug folder for the first layer and added some stickles to the dots, then I glittered the fairy's wings and the roses and the butterfly. The layout is this week's Blogger's Challenge sketch flipped on it's side. I used the colors for KWerner's Color Challenge, I meant to add more brown, but in the end only her hair ended up with the brown from the challenge...

For the inside I left it blank to leave room for a note to a friend, just added some more punched butterflies...
