Magical Birthday card

Once upon a time, a traveling wizard visited a castle owned by a lovely fairy and found a lonely little cat who spent all her time sitting in a window, watching the birds and the fairies, and wishing she could fly with them.

The wizard spent some time with the cat and was very taken with her gentleness. He decided to grant her wishes as a special birthday gift for his hostess.

The card features Third Coast's Sarus Suggests (FA-254-I), the Open Window (CH-755-G), Stone Bench, and Kitty Fairy (CH-681-G).

All elements of the scene were colored with Copic markers. The floor and the stone wall was drawn in with Copic markers as well. The kitty's wings were painted with a layer of Iridescent Purple Twinkling H2Os.

The sentiment is from the Fairy Fantasy Unmounted Sheet by The Enchanted Gallery and was embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder by Ranger Industries.

Krylon Gold Leaf pen and German Dresden Foil Borders were added. You can find a lovely selection of Dresden Foil at Retro Cafe Art Gallery.
