A Taylored Birthday

So this week Sunday is the birthday of my oldest friend. Oldest as in I've known her the longest. And she's also one of my shortest friends. Hehe! Anyways, I made this card for my girl, Tym. When I saw this fairy on the TGF website, I immediately thought of her. Mostly because she totally looks like she's up to something. Mischievous. Like she's holding the secret of the lemons...

I used this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch, TESC120. Originally I had some brighter paper picked out, but when I sponged the edges with angel pink it came out more mauvey than pink. So I ended up swapping out the dp. I added a few flourishes and topped them w/ glossy accents for dimension.

I went over her red dress with a spica glitter pen, but I think I went a bit overboard on the wings. I traced parts of her wings with stickles then topped it w/ glitter. And if I know Tym, she's going to be rockin' glitter all over herself and everything else for days. Sweetness.

The Dets:
Stamps: TGF Autumn Fairy, Inkado Dotty Flourishes
Paper: Memento dark chocolate, MME so sophie, BG eva
Ink: Memento black, Brilliance pearlescent chocolate, Copics, spica clear
Accessories: Ribbon, spellbinder rectangles, stickles, glitter, PTI medium scallops


  1. I like I like and love glitter

  2. Pretty! The wings and dress look sparkly awesome! Happy Birthday to Tym!
