KitCats are Magical

The first Sunday of every month is very special to me. It's the day that the KitCats have committed to posting a project made with identical items. Susan was our hostess this month and WOWzer! You should see all the marvelous items she sent us in our packets. There were tons and tons of embellishments (I only used a few of them), luscious papers, and even a pocket calendar to alter, if we so chose.

Due to my traveling schedule, I didn't have as much time to work on this project as I wanted to, so I chose to do a card instead, since it's familiar territory and would take less time than the calendar. I'm sorry, Susan, because I really would have loved to WOW you.

The theme this month is Fantsasy, Whimsical, Magical, and Susan allowed us to choose our own images to use. I don't have many images in this category, so choosing an image was simple. I went with sn Inkadinkado fairy image from the Beautiful Fairies set.





To add some magical charm to this post, I took my photos outside... at a park in Kansas, where my daughter lives. Isn't it a gorgeous setting?

These two photos give you a closer look at some of the embellishments, pearls, ribbon, charms, crystal droplets, flowers... did I say WOWzer?




The pictures don't really show the sparkle of the image. I colored a lot of it with Copic Spica pens to make it shine/sparkle.





Be sure to check out what the other KitCats have created, too. I'm sure each one is amazing!

What a gorgeous card! I love the papers you received and the colors - oh my. The extra pearls on the flowers is a great touch (one I can assure you I'll be borrowing - wink wink). Lovely all the way around and great place to take the pictures: totally fitting.

Hugs to you!

Gorgeous coloring of the fantasy fairy, and I love how you added the pearls to her wings and tucked the ribbon around the panel. And don't you dare apologize about the planner! LOL!
