Remember catching fireflies?

Do you remember catching fireflies in a mason jar then letting them escape, gently floating away into the sky?  A wonderful childhood memory!  This is my version of the same but this time I caught Christmas fairies instead.  I used my tiny Magnolia fairy stamp after I stamped my jar.  I colored them with Copic markers (r22, 24, 29, e02, 00, 000, Y21, 23, T1) then my Glitter glue to add some sparkle.  The paper is from PTI (papertrey inc).  I popped up the jar and my tiny fairy floating out of the jar using popdots then tied some red bakers twine around the card and threaded a vintage red button onto it.  Loving this card!  Love, Elle
