Spring Card With Baby Fairy

Where did the warm weather go? I woke up this morning and got a real chill when I let the dogs out. It seems like winter is giving us one last blast.

This week the theme for Mo's Digital Challenge #181 is "Spring".

This is how I made the card:
(1.) I started with a blank pre-folded kraft card that measures 4" by 5 1/2".
(2.) I found this lovely double-sided patterned paper at Michael's on the Clearance Shelf (Imaginisce). One side is red and decorated with watermelon seeds and the other side is white and decorated with strawberries. I used both sides as the background for this card.
(3.) I used the same digital image that I used last week. This cute little baby fairy is from Mo's 3 Baby Fairies set. I colored the image with Copic sketch markers and cut it out with a Spellbinders die. I attached it to the card with foam squares.
(4.) I embellished the card with a "Celebrate" sentiment sticker, a vellum butterfly and two insect die cuts. All of these embellishments are from K & Co.
(5.) I used two red glitter swirls (Recollections) to hold the butterfly in place and add a little sparkle to the card.
This card could be used as a birthday card or just a reminder to CELEBRATE life and everything in it.
Thank you for taking a look at my greeting card. Please share your thoughts in the Comments Section below.
