Another Fairy

Ever have one of those days? Yes, one of those day! Saturday I made two online purchases, then went to pay my credit card online. I am checking out my account and see two charges that I did NOT make. So I call my credit card company and yes they were fraudulent charges so they closed that credit card and will send me another one. Well, one of the orders I made hadn't been processed yet so I had to call the company and ask them not to run the charge. Well, all this info just to explain why I made this card! I didn't want to wait for my new card so I could call the company to process my order, instead I used the old fashioned way of writing a check and mailing it off! LOL! (PS: the charges were pretty small, $1 and $10; you'd think if you were going to steal someone's credit card at least do it in a big way! Fortunately I caught it fairly quickly and the charges weren't much!)

Since I decided to send a check I had to have "something" to send it in and this is what I came up with. One of my first fairy stamps was from Stamp Francisco. Here is Fairy. The background is this Flourish stamp. I was in a purple mood, having used it for another card I made so I just stayed with it. Besides, purple is the color of royalty and with that crown I figure she is a princess fairy. :)

After I finished coloring her I thought she needed some extra shimmer so I added Lilac Shimmerz to her dress and crown and Opal to her wings. Ahhhhh, lovely!
