Wishes and Dreams Hop

Welcome to the "Wishes and Dreams" Hop!
Today I wanted to have Alicia's little fairy holding something else in her hand besides the wand, and I came across this cute print from the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love pack with all these dandelions blowing all over, perfect for a birthday wish! I colored and cut her out, then popped her onto the background, positioning her hand over one of the dandelions. I cut out two little borders for the bottom from different prints in the pack to make a border for the little lady to skip along and die cut some hearts for my accents and greetings, cutting a larger one around a smaller heart to make a little window for spotlighting the dandelion. The lighter aqua that I used on her skirt and wings was such a close match to the paper until I got it photographed: it has such a yellow undertone, but it does complement the paper. The Lipstick Red hearts and base I threw in to contrast these muted tones.
