Clean and Simple FTL95 - Fairy Birthday

I've got fairies on the brain!  My latest die cut started as a sketch.  I still have ideas of digital stamps in my head, even though I can't figure out how to computerize them.  So, I sat at my computer with my latest sketch, determined to turn it in to a die cut.  I did - and I made three versions of it!

Cleand and Simple is my style, so I decided to debut my new fae with the Clean and Simple FTL (Fall-To-Layout) #95.  Even though these simple layouts are supposed to be fast, I spent all of yesterday evening in to the wee hours of this morning developing my newest fairy die cut to use for this sketch!  This is the sketch:
And this is my fairy paper die cut!
One of the samples used brads in place of the ribbon and I like that distinct and separate look, so I did the same using Stickles glitter glue in place of brads.  On the first card, I used a complimentary colour for the fairy wings by trying to pull the blue from the paper.
On the second one, I decided to try a more monochrome look to enchance the simple design and I also made the background cream so the white fairy would stand out more.  Overall,I made three versions: this one, a solid silhouette and one with a dress instead of legs and only the upper portion of the wings to be an angel.  I love it when I surprise myself with two die cuts out of one design!

Hope you like my fairy wishes!
