Reading Fairy Card

Back to School is all about Reading!

The image is called “Reading Fairy” and came from Elizabeth O. Dumlemba

This is my favorite Dr. Seuss saying of all time!

I tried a few new things for this one and I’m pretty pleased with how it worked out.

It’s a modified version of the sketch from Card Patterns

I’m also going to post it a few other places, like:

Olive Juice Studio, August Challenge

She didn’t make it easy this month. There are FIVE requirements to enter

and I really had to think about how to put it all together.

But that’s what a challenge is about, right?

The Dirty Details:

1.  Your project must include a stamped image – it can be a rubber, clear or digital stamp image OR it may include a clip art image. (CHECK!)

2.  It must include at least one Cricut cut. (CHECK!- used Cricut to cut scalloped circles & squares)

3.  It must include fiber, a ribbon or fabric somewhere in the project. (CHECK!)

4.  It must include at least one piece of bling – such as a bead, pearl, gemstone, glitter, etc. (CHECK! – see pretty wings?)

5.  It needs to include at least one patterned paper. (CHECK!- notice the starry, starry night)
