Once Upon a Time...

there was a paper crafter named Kathi, who liked to create cards first then decide how to use them afterwards. She was very taken with all sorts of images, but especially those from bygone eras, such as Third Coast's Sumi’s Book of Magic (FT-190-I), which can be found on page 8 of the Summer '05 supplement.

Sumi was colored with Copic markers to match 7 Gypsies Savannah patterned paper. She was cut out and popped up over a die cut from perfect "Once Upon a Time" text paper by DCWV, which was sponged with some Distress Ink to make it match better. There's a strip of text paper (also DCWV) that has some glitter to it. Sadly, the photo doesn't show reveal the sparkle.

I am entering this card:
