Have a Fairy Happy Birthday

This has been a really wet and hot week in Michigan, major thunder storms, power outages and clost to 100 degrees.  Hopefully, the end of July will be more comfortable than the beginning!  I'm gearing up to see the Harry Potter finale on Friday (well really Thursday night) 12:05 a.m. with the teen and some friends!  Should be a real hoot!  I know, I know, I'm out of my mind, but that's the only thing he asked us to do this summer and I can't let him down.  He is autistic and he works so hard to fit in all year long and get the best grades he can so he deserves it!


Thanks for joining me again, always love Top Tip Tuesday's because it's the middle of the week!  It's Tipper week so be sure to leave us your best tip to win the great prize.   Also, we have two great sponsors today! Each with their own sketch, so stop over the TTT challenge blog and show me your creations!


On to the details of my newest piece of greeting art. But before I do, I wanted to leave some helpful tips as well:
1.  Try to limit your creations to 2 or 3 main colors, so that the project is coordinated.
2.  If your image is less than 1/2 the size of your entire card base, don't hesitate to make the sentiment almost the same size, Your card will be designed evenly and the embellishments won't take over the entire design.  This is the sketch I turned slightly and followed:

Sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs w/ Whimsy
