Prairie Fairy and MMSC#40

My card today features "A Little Friend" freebie image at Prairie Fairy where the challenge is to make a valentine themed card (winner to be drawn on Feb 19) and the MMSC40 sketch which is super fabulous!!
I made a non-traditional valentine's card. Used DCWV cardstock and the rustic stack along with K&Co dp.
The wisteria image is a spellbinders borderabilities brushed with tea dye distress ink and stamped with SU teeny tiny wishes~~happy valentine's day :)  If you look closely, you will see I distressed the edges of matted paper and wisteria border slightly with scissors and then brushed along tea dyed distress ink pad~~I am a clean cut kinda girl~~so this distressing or tearing was emotional --lol!! I really like the look so beware you may see more :D  
The Prairie Fairy "A little Friend" freebie image was computer generated and colored with copics, cut out with a spellbinders label seven and softened with antique linen distress ink.  His wings were glitzed with DecoArt glistening snow writer and glitter. 

The flowers and leaves were in my stash. Used copics to darken all the edges of the flowers and added yellow stickles for sparkle:)   

The finished inside!!!

Hi Mary Lou - you made me laugh about the distressing and tearing - watch out it is ADDICTIVE - I love it and you have done it so perfectly! Your card is adorable, I love this image and all of the special touches you have added - like the sidepanel. I appreciate your close ups so I can see the detail - gorgeous! It is great to have you playing along this week with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, your cards are such a delight to see. We look forward to seeing you next week!

Hi Mary Lou! I was SOO excited when I saw your card - cause I just couldn't wait to see a card with that new image!!! You did a FABULOUS job on it - and I love the close-ups too cause sometimes it's hard to see the details. High five - you "rocked it" as the Prairy Fairy would say! LOL Also, you have a wonderful blog and your talent is incredible! Thanks for sharing it with us :-)
