Teen Fairy Mia

Decided to combine a couple challenges this week:

Pixie Dust Studio Challenge #119: Your Favorite things
Mo's Challenge #127: "Bling It On"
Charisma Cards Challenge: Pocket Cards

And here is what I came up with:
I started with one of my favorite folded cards a double pocket card.  I used a 12x12 sheet of paper, but you can use other sizes.  I used a digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil:  Teen Fairy Mia.  I colored her with Stampin'Up pencils and then added bling...stickles and glitter.  I used Spellbinders for the image mat and tag.
The ribbon is not attached, but used as a band so that you can open the card.  The image is only attached on the bottom half so both pockets are usable.  Typically I put a tag with a sentiment or another image in the first pocket and then a little treat in the second pocket...candy, tea, hot cocoa, etc.

I used several of my "favorite things"  making this card...

1.  My favorite fold technique
2.  Bling of all kinds!  Glitter, Stickles, rhinestones, pearls....
3. Silky ribbon
4.  Fun fibers on the tag

Thanks for looking :)
