Creative Colors Challenge #23

Hi bloggers and crafty friends!  Today I am sharing with you another card I made as part of the design team for the Creative Colors Challenge.  Our palette this time was yellow, brown, and green, and we had to use at least two layers.  Here is the inspiration photo:

This is the card I created:

I layered an ink distressed doily, green and brown card stock, green and brown mulberry paper, yellow polka dotted card stock and burlap for the foundation of the card.  A light brown spray was applied to the entire card.  Then, I painted the image with pearlized paints and added Twinkle Dust to the green fairy wings, which I attached with foam tape for dimension.  Mulberry paper yellow roses and green leaves were attched and added yellow and green seam binding that had been sprayed with a light brown in addition to brown chiffon ribbon and a brown metal acorn bell.  The green leaves also have some Twinkle Dust on them for a whimsical feel.  The fairy also has a tiny peal in the middle of her collar. Hope you like it!
