You're Special

Today I have made a card for a young girl.  The sentiment says, "You're special."  

I started with a white card base, which I covered with embossed red cardstock.  I coloured the cute little image (available from Fred She Said) with pencils, added Stickles to her wings, die cut into an oval, mounted on a decorative turquoise oval, and affixed to the card with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment in black, coloured with pencils, and affixed to the card.  Lastly I embellished with a pink flower, attached with a gem-filled brad, and a butterfly charm tied with pink yarn.

Hey Kitty, I'm here with a different DT hat this time. Your card turned out adorable. I'm interested to know what part of Dollarama you found those little charms in because I've yet to find anything like that in our local one. I'm sure the little girl you made this for will love it. Thanks so much for joining us in our current challenge over at Digi Darla's. Good luck and I hope we see you again in future challenges.
