Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #27–Card and Matching 3D Gift!

                        Wishing Star Angel and Windmill  

                                                 Wishing Star Angel

For the Fussy and Fancy challenge I made a birthday card for the celebration, and a paper windmill for the 3D matching gift.  The image “Wishing Star Angel” is from Michelle Perkett Studio.  This image is also our Saturday spotlight on the Michelle Perkett Challenge Blog this week.  You can purchase her at Michelle’s Etsy Store, and she is having a fabulous 50% off sale on all her images starting January 7th at midnight PST until January 9th midnight PST.

I colored the image with copics, and then layered her on yellow cardstock.  I used the Martha Stewart corner and border punch on the pink layer of cardstock to frame the image.  the designer paper is from K&Company – Wild Raspberry paper pad.  I embossed the yellow card stock with the Moroccan Screen embossing folder from Cuttlebug, then just ripped the edges.  The bow is made from the yellow card stock, and the designer paper. Then  I used yellow and crystal stickles on the stars.  I decided to use bright spring colors, because I was tired of the typical greens reds and blues for this time of year.  The windmill is made with the same pink cardstock and punches.  The brad in the center of the windmill, I made with my trusty brad maker.
