Wish Love Believe - Cuddly Buddly Design Team Call Entry

Today I decided to throw my hat in the ring for the new clear stamp design team at Cuddly Buddly
I have been a big fan of CB for years, they were among the first digital stamps I ever colored.
Not they are branching into the clear stamp market on a worldwide basis and I wish Kim all the best with this new venture!
For the call we had to pick one of the digital or clear stamp images and create a card and "a little something else". For my "something else" I went with an exploding box in coordinating papers and of course some daisies :)

Now seriously how cute is this little fairy? She just makes me smile so much, she was a joy to color (even I can see I am getting better on the hair and face thanks to Lori Craig) and I just had to add some glitter to make her sparkle just that little bit more.
The exploding box was a very simple design using a 12" by 12" piece of cardstock scored at 4" and 8" on all sides using my trusty Scor-Pal. I then decorated with the same papers used on the card and added some die cut and punched daisies to go with the card theme.
I hope that you liked this little set and if you can send me some "get picked for the team" vibes I would really appreciate it :)
