Once Upon A Springtime

We're off to NYC this week to bring my daughter to her internship, it's been a great holiday and we will miss her! I like to call her my little fairy so here's a tag for Retro Cafe Art in her honor.

I used RCA ATC trefoil gothic frame and coated it with copper glitter.  The tag background is a Glimmer mist spray of orange, copper and green. The little fairy is from Graphic 45 paper, of course I added the Stickles allover her wings and petal skirts. I put a patterned paper of flowers in the ATC frame with Stickles too. The RCA colored roses in orange, lime and rust have some Stickles accents for a glittery touch. The  sentiment is actual the name of the Graphics45 paper that had the fairy on it. Stickled dots were  used as the final accents of this tag.

Hope you will see a little fairy this week.
artfully yours, gerri
