Paper Pieced Fairy Tot

Hello everyone....what a beautiful day we are having here in Central Texas!!! I didn't do any planting this morning but I did clean my dirty house!! I swear, doing housework is harder and more labor intensive that anything!!! Actually, the reason I cleaned is because we are going to have company over night...otherwise the dirt coulda waited another week or so...LOL!!! Anyway.... I made this card for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast today.
The adorable Woodware images from the Fairy Tots set were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with copics, cutout, and attached to the background dp . Paper Piecing was added to the little boy fairy using Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love dp. The sentiment is from Woodware's Salutations set. An EK Success border punch was used for the scallop, glitter was added to the wings, and lace and a button with twine finish it off.
Stamps: Woodware's Fairy Tots and Salutations
Paper: White, Vanilla, Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown, Cosmo Cricket Earth Love
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Copics, Dimensionals, Ek Success Scallop Border Punch, Button, Twine, Lace, Oval Punch, Nestabilities, Glitter

Thanks for visiting and please come back soon!!!
