Corrosive Challenge # 190 - New Beginnings

Happy New Year!  Man, the holidays fly by, I swear you blink and they are over.  The fam and I had a great Christmas and New Years Eve, but it's always a little relief to get back to normal.  That means a new challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog .  We are always pleased to welcome back A Day For Daisies as our sponsor.  

A Day For Daisies (also known as ADFD) provides themed categories of over 1000 digital illustrations, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions. Be sure to check out what is available in the shop, and head over to the blog for some awesome inspiration!  ADFD has also opened a new clear polymer shop featuring "most loved" images sold as sets.  Check out their lovely selection HERE!
In honor of the new year, our theme for the challenge is "New Beginnings" - wedding, graduation, new baby, Baptism, spring, you get the idea.

I chose Morning Dew Fairy to work with, she is so sweet.  I was thinking along the lines of a "new day" for my card.

She is colored with Copics, with Stickles added to her wings, and glossy accents added to the dew drops.  Combination of Recollections and Wild Orchid flowers/butterflies/pearls.  I made a stick pin using supplies from Walmart!  They have an ever growing Paper Crafting section that comes in very handy for last minute or spur of the moment needs.

A closer view:

It's actually really funny when I got done with my card, I started having a Deja Vu moment, then I looked back at another ADFD card I had made...
Look familiar?  LOL.  Leave it to me to choose the same paper, color scheme, and embellies for the most part!  Someone, break me out of my comfort zone, ASAP!  Maybe I'll give it to my mom again, and they can be companion pieces, haha.

Hope to see lots of fantastic "new" entries!

Thanks for stopping by,
