Have a fairy good day!

Before I get to my card today, I just wanted to make note of my weekend.  I use this blog mostly for scrappy/crafty stuff, but also want to document life as well.  We had the chance to drive up to Northern Utah-Logan, for my step-daughters wedding.  It was at the Logan temple and the day was perfect.  With the higher elevation and being up the canyon, I really thought the day would be nice and a little cooler. It was HOT, and didn't cool down until we got back into Salt Lake where we had nice  dark clouds and a cool breeze.

 Here is a pic of my step-daughter and her new husband.  I totally love their shoes!!  They are such a cute couple!!  The day was a little bittersweet as we were missing my youngest step-daughter who is in Cedar Sinai hospital, she has been very sick for over a month and they transported her from Vegas to California about a week ago, hopefully they will help her get better, but so far it seems like everything they try to do for her doesn't work.  It was a beautiful, special day, but we missed her being there with us.
Totally cute shoes

Ok, on to my card.  I used this darling fairy image from Di's Digi's and then the sketch for our challenge over at Critter Sketch, here is the sketch by Colleen Spangler.  It was a lot of fun to work with!

 I colored with copics,  butterflies are from my Martha Stewart punch, added gems, stickles, and glossy accents, did some outline work with black and white and then used my scrap pattern paper.  I haven't decided on a sentiment yet, will wait until I have the perfect use for this card.  Thanks for stopping by and if you got this far, thanks for reading!! ;)
