Mushroom Break..

Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature. -Lynn HollandThis week's Cupcake Inspirations sponsor is Prairie Fairy and they gave each of the Sweeties an image to play with. I chose Mushroom Break, she is just So cute taking a little sit down, leaning on the woodland mushroom. I pulled the blues and the swirls from the cupcake and then used the ColourQ colors and the CPS sketch to finish up the card. Lots of sparkles on this always! ;)

I added a sky behind the little fairy using a sponge, a scallop circle cut out and soft sky ink. (If you are interested in a tutorial let me know in the comments section and I will work one up)

I used the rest of the piece of Webster's Pages paper for the inside, I didn't want to waste a bit of this gorgeous paper!!!

Paper: Lullaby Lane (Webster's Pages,) Soft Sky (SU,) White, Enchanted Evening (PTI)
