Best Wishes a.k.a. Good Luck

I don't believe in luck, never have.  Therefore, I don't use the phrase, "good luck".  However, I do find myself using phrases such as, "wishing you all the best".  Isn't that the same thing?  Hmm, I'll have to ponder that one.  Meanwhile, if I'm going to encourage someone regarding future endeavors, I think I'll stick to, "May God bless you".  Okay well, I'm already making an exception on this card:
The image is LOTV's Fairies on Tiptoe (I don't believe in them either, sorry Tink).  The sentiment is LOTV's Handwritten Phrases.  The paper is from a 6x6  Prima pad called Doodle Deux, and a bit of orange cardstock I had on hand.  I used Copics to color in the fairy and added some glitter glue.  The oval was inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink and the sentiment banner was inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  Gems from Michaels were colored with Copics.  Some elements were raised using Elmer's foam adhesive.

This card was inspired by the following challenges:
Lili's Little Fairies:  Good Luck!

LOTV's Ideas to Inspire:  Use a Sentiment

Thanks so much for stopping by, it really feels good to be back in the swing of things!
Have a great day!
