Crafty Gals Corner Challenges #83

This week (and last week's) the Crafty Gals Corner Challenges (#83) is Birthday's/Celebrate!
Our sponsors this week are:
Prize: 3 Digital Images
Prize:1 Digital Image
Ching-Chou Kuik was born in 1979 at Pantai Remis, Perak, Malaysia . She lived in Malaysia, and moved to Taiwan at age of 19, to pursuit her fine art education at National Taiwan Normal University.

In 2003, she graduated with a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts (painting). 

While in Taipei, Ching-Chou enjoyed being an art teacher for young children from age three to twelve. The originality of the youngsters' pieces inspires her and brings enthusiasm and creativity to her works. Ching-Chou moved to Seattle with her husband in 2005, and a mother to a boy.
Ching-Chou became a full-time artist and share her art with others since Mar 2006.

Here is my project card for this week using Coco Marshmallow Fae

I really wish you could see all the glitter and shininess to this card! It really pops in person. I used Heavenly White #80 from Paper Temptress for both the card base and to print/color my image. I cut her out and layered her onto a sheet of Aqua and Olive from the Basis package. Lots of colors to choose from, but I'm already almost out! 
I then embossed some wooden snowflakes with Ranger Snowflake embossing powder I got from Reneabouquets. All the snowflakes shown on the card were gifted to me in a Pocket Letter I had received. I had a Here's to You sentiment to the right side, added a bow with a handmade embellishment on top of the bow, and red lace to the left with iridescent pearl trim. I then took stickles to the wings, her jacket, marshmallows, snowflakes on cup, and a little on the sentiment. The red beads on the bottom right are made from a hot glue gun my grandson had done for me. I just added stickles on top of that after I had used DecoArt metallic red on them. 

I hope you join in our challenge this week! Great gifts just might head your way!
