The song in my heart

Hi all!

My card isn't exactly a simple Sunday card but once I got home from work I really needed to unwind and I had time to just relax and color so I did. I recently came across these Pergamano Fairies whilst blog surfing and are you surprised to hear that I couldn't resist getting my hands on a few? They finally arrived this past week and I loved coloring this little cutie up. And to make it even better I had some new Cosmo Cricket Pixielicious papers to pair up and pull my colors from... yum! Of course there is a lot of sparkle also added to the scene but for the life of me I just can't get it to show up in my pics, you'll just have to take my word for it that she sparkles quite a bit in person. :)
I'm also entering this into the Flutter By challenge which is open this week... how perfect is that?!

Ok, thanks so much for stopping by today... and be sure to come back Monday when I'll be gearing up to kick off a full week of sneak peeks and candy goodness!
