Its a New Challenge at Inky Impressions!!

And I am so happy to show you this finished project!!  I debated as always how to design the card and then I decided to go Vintage on it!  This beautiful image was perfect for it! Such a sweet and lovely fairy with her little butterfly friend.  Super cute! 

Now the challenge theme is Glitter and Gloss.  I added for some shine glitter on her wings, bracelet, and on the butterfly.  It may be hard to see but if you click on the image and enlarge it, you may be able to see it better.
