Enchanted Slumber

This week at Card Crafter's Circle we invite you to create cards on the theme of:

(Elves, Fairies, Gnomes, Pixies, Sprites, etc)

This week, our sponsor is MICHELLE PERKETT STUDIOS! Michelle skilfully presents a huge collection of mermaids, fairies, and people, with various images in between!  They are sure to delight you, so we hope you avail yourself of her designs!

Our random prize winner will receive their choice of one of the gorgeous images showcased by our design team in this challenge post!   We are thrilled to have MPS sponsoring our challenges... because the images are so beautiful... and because they will always bring a smile to your face!
I was able to work with the beautiful "Enchanted Slumber" stamp from Michelle - and I'm so glad.  It's such an adorable image.  Plus, it seems like half the world is having babies in the next few months, so baby cards will be needed!  

I colored this gorgeous stamp with markers, then went back in with colored pencils to create the background and add depth.  The flowers have a dab of pearl paint in the center, and the wings are covered in sparkly glitter glue.

Be sure to stop by over at Card Crafter's Circle to see the other beautiful creations from the design team!
