Crafting When We Can Challenge #39

Happy Sunday everyone! I have been busy trying to get some cards done. It really takes me forever!! LOL  Anyway... Today is the start of Challenge #39 over at Crafting When We Can. This challenge has a theme of Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Here is my card... then I will explain my thought process... sometimes its a bit odd LOL!

So, my son use to watch Avatar - The Last Air-bender cartoons. It was really a good show. When the theme was the elements it was the first thing I thought of. Sometimes I just take things too literally LOL So I went looking for the symbols from The Avatar show and they had the different nations... Fire, Water, Earth and Air. I printed out those symbols in black and white and then the air symbol I kept color and made it prominent in the front. That was my thought process for this challenge. I used the wonderful image from Dilly Beans - Penelope & Birdcage. I love Dilly Beans images! I thought Air fit with the birds and the fairy. So there you have it... LOL I colored the image with Copic, I used all cardstock with this card. I embossed clouds on the white. The "A Friend is..." on the front is handwritten and then the quote on the inside of the card is printed. I popped the birdcage, the bird she is holding and the air symbol. I hope you enjoy and I can't WAIT! to see your thought process is with this awesome challenge!

Copic List:
Dress: BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18 and RV63, RV66, RV69
Shoes: C5, C7, C9
Hair: E23, E50, E51, E53
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E08
Birds and Heart: R24, R27, R29
