Open-Minded Creative FUN ~ Last Days of Summer

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a super special card for you. The Open-Minded Creative FUN challenge blog is challenging you to create something that reminds you of the "End of Summer". When I spotted this image I fell in love as the fairy is looking like she is already missing the warm summer months. She is dreaming of the flowers and trying to etch their beauty forever in her mind. This is an image by one of our awesome sponsors this week, Milk and Coffee Digital Images. "Fairy Tiffany" can be purchased for about $3 over at the Milk & Coffee's Etsy Page. They have lots of amazing images so make sure to click on their name to check them all out.

Lookie here....I didn't even realize that this image completely matches the companies business banner. How cute! 
 Materials Include:
Prima Paper from the Madeline Collection
Monika Martison Sentiment
SU! ink and punches
Sizzix Dies
Flowers from stash
Copic Markers:
E000, E00, E11, E21, BG10 BG11, BG13, E50, E51, E53, YG61, YG63, R20, R22
