Scraps Card #21 A Child's Year various

I got an amazing deal the other day on Kijiji, 3 cartridges for $30.00!  The cartridges I got were A Child's Year, Stretch Your Imagination and Paper Doll Dress Up.  Talk about your huge deal!!!!!
I love the images in  A Child's Year cartridge.  An image for everything and so simple to use.  So I knew for my next scraps card I wanted to make a birthday card using this cartridge.
For my inspiration on the birthday card with the fairy, I used a little inspiration from Mary at Cardz TV.  She has such beautiful stamp sets, cards and is a huge inspiration for the new card maker to the more seasoned.
For the card base, I used white cardstock cut lengthwise at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  The mat is a purple-pink color and was cut from my scraps at 5 1/4" x 4".  The patterned paper is from my stash of scraps as well and is cut at 5" x 3 3/4".
I used my Lacey Labels cartridge to cut a frame and used the "Hugs" image using shift and normal feature at 4".  Using A Child's Year, I cut the tooth fairy image on p. 77 at 3" from black cardstock.  I used foam tape to add dimension to her.  The sentiment is from All Occasion's from Stampin' Up and was stamped using Memento Black Ink.  The inside sentiment is also from Stampin' Up and is from the Birthday Greetings set.  I also added some bling to the card and also on the fairy's wand.

For the Just a Note Card, I used white cardstock cut at a normal A2 size card of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  The mat is a blue-grey color and was cut from my scraps at 5 1/4" x 4". The patterned paper is from my stash of scraps as well and is cut at 5" x 3 3/4".  I also used Lacey Labels Hugs Image but cut it at 4 1/4".  The image of the boy fishing is from A Child's Year and is the Outdoors boy found on p. 38 of the manual.  I cut him at 2 1/4" and added some Glossy Accents to the water to give it a shine.
The sentiment is from a new set I got at Michael's and is by Hero Art Clear Stamps.  The set is called Everyday Sayings and was also stamped using Memento Black Ink.
