Celebrate Tinker Bell

Hello! Ever since Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure was released on DVD, Sabrina has been in love with everything Tinker Bell. We also added the first Tinker Bell movie to our collection, so we've been alternating between the two. They are both very sweet stories. I can totally see how Sabrina relates to Tinker Bell -- they are both sweet and sassy!

My card today combines a couple of challenges. First off, I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #44 for my layout. I'm also playing along with JUGS7, which is a technique challenge to use dry embossing. After I started my card, I realized there is also a JUGS twist to make a birthday card. I had already decided that I was going to make a Tinker Bell card for Sabrina, but it's not her birthday... then I realized her 1/2 birthday just passed... on 11/14, she is officially 6-1/2 years old!

My image of Tinker Bell is one of a few fun ones from Disney's Tinker Bell clear stamp set. I colored her with Copic markers, added Star Dust Stickles to her fairy wings and Polar White Flower Soft to the tops of her shoes. It's hard to see, but I dry embossed my lavender moon panel with Butterflies Impressabilities. I also dry embossed the butterflies with Swiss Dots. The Tinker Bell ribbon is from Michael's.

You've seen my Tinker Bell card, so now here's my "Tinker Brina":
