Make a Wish

Hi stampers!  I made today's card for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge - clean and simple paper piecing.
First, I stamped this adorable fairy by The Craft's Meow directly on the card with Memento London Fog ink.  I liked the softer tone of the grey rather than stamping it in black.

Then I paper pieced the wings and dress - stamping those parts on dotted patterned papers, cutting them out and adhering them over the stamped image. 

Keeping it CAS - i just added two Tiny Twinkles and drew a line across the top and bottom of the card with a silver pen to define the visual field.  I was going to frame all four sides - but I did the top and bottom first and I liked how it looked - so I left it at that!!

 Thanks for coming by today! I'd love for you to leave me a comment so I can come and see you!
