In my mind nothing can beat the clear blue summer skies especially here in Arizona where the skies are totally clear, we can go for days without seeing a single cloud.
 
I thought this bubble fairy was really cute and blue fairies are the best. I printed her then colored her with colored pencils and added some Accent Essentials to the bubble, "highlight" areas and to her wings then I sprinkled some blue glitter on her wings. I also added some blue and white stickles to fill in some of the area between the bubbles. Here is a bit closer look at the shaker that I filled with blue and white beads plus a few blue and silver sequins.
 

 
 After making the shaker element I cut a piece of watercolor paper to fit my pre-made card base. I colored the paper with my eBrush then used a damp paint brush to spread the color around then I added some circles using a stamp from My Creative Time with blue ink.
After wrapping a ribbon around the folded edge I added a crystal flower and some silver sequins.
