Dancing for your Birthday

My amazing niece is having a birthday, and she has all boys.  She is a great mother and because she is always surrounded by males, I wanted to make her a card that is very girlie!

The sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday, challenge #428, sponsored by A Day for Daises is perfect for this card.  I loved these fairies when I first saw them and they can be used in any number of ways.  My color theme for this card is purple which is one of my favorite colors, and  I used the foiling technique on this card. To do this technique, I print out the digital image in black and white on regular printer paper using a laser printer, then I run that image through my laminator with gold foil over the image.  Once the image is cool I peel away the foil and anywhere there was black ink is now gold foil.  So much fun!  I can then color the image with my copics, colored pencils or what ever medium I choose.  I am going to make a dragonfly necklace for her which ties in with this fairy whose wings look like dragonfly wings to me.
