Have a Magical Day - (CTD448)

Hello!  It's Wednesday and time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge.  It's my turn to host the challenge for this week and I chose my colors based on the flower bouquets in the inspiration photo with it's pretty hydrangeas, purples and rich violets.
For my card, I used the sweet Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends stamp set and coordinating Fairy Friends Lawn Cuts.  I'm also entering this card into the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge which is to create a card with Watercolor.  
I started out by watercoloring a piece of watercolor paper using teal and mint green watercolors.  While that was drying, I stamped and colored my images using Copic markers then die cut them out.  Once my background was dry, I used my Misti tool and stamped my sentiment and the star images above where the fairy house is then slowly adhered each piece of my scene, popping up the fairies, house and three mushrooms.  Once everything was in place, I adhered my watercolored panel onto a white card base and added a die cut scalloped rectangle frame.  As a finishing touch, I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen and added glitter to the fairies wings, dresses, house and flowers then added lime green loose glitter to the magic wand, background stars and fronds.  It's always hard to try and capture glitter, metallic or shiny things in photos but I tried.
For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.

Darling, darling card. I just love the little fairies. I have slowly become a Lawn Fawnatic myself (she laughs).
