Hello Friend for Elizabeth Mae

I want to share with you another card today.  It turned out much better than I ever expected.  Anyone have this when creating?  I was really unsure about the colors because not my fave but I was determined to try them and I managed to create a really lovely card.  I might add this to my top ten cards. 

It's a new Elizabeth Mae design.  I recently rediscovered my Coordinations cardstock.  I was avoiding the whitewash stack because not sure about using.  Silly me.  I guess sometimes you have to sit on things to think it through and I will say this was in my collection for a bit.  I almost gave it away but then something made me stop.  I colored the fairy in with my Copics and cut her out.  She is popped up on with foam dimensions on a mat of gold corrugated cardstock and a glitter punched border.  I stamped the sentiment with my SP & Co Bold Sentiment Set I on SU's sage shadow using chocolate chip ink.  I hand stitched the top and bottom of the corrogated piece with sage shadow thread.  I stamped on a few flourishes on the whitewash cardstock using an Autumn Leaves stamp and SU's sage shadow ink.  Lots of that color!  The tiny postcard strip if from Making Memories.  I couldn't throw a bit of that paper away.  Glad I kept it. The soft colors went perfectly with this.  Finally I added a few buttons.
