Fairy Card Using Conie Fong "Sitting Pretty On A Mushroom"

Hello friends!   It is beginning to warm back up in Southern CA; so it is probably going to be a very hot summer here.  I heard that it is still snowing in Wisconsin; so they have received a lot of heavy snow this year.  It should be getting warmer there; but that isn't happening yet.  Stay warm and stay safe.

I would love for you to join my group.  A place to share ideas, creations and more. Click above.

I have wanted to use this adorable Conie Fong "Sitting Pretty On A Mushroom" for a very long time.  I finally got it colored; but then it took me 10 days to get it made into a card.  I had purchased this Graphic 45 Fairie Dust Collection; just for this image.  It didn't look the way I expected it; but I tried to show as much of the paper as I could.
