Challenge #180 - Magical Monday

Hello! Heather here with our Magical Monday Challenge. I challenge you to find something magical or mystical and create a card, layout, or any paper-related project that includes a little magic. This could be themed as a movie or book, a specific character, or just generally about all things *MAGICAL*!

Our fabulous guest designer Becca Yahrling has a great project for us today.  Here is more about her project and herself:

"Hope you enjoy today's card. It was made with die sets from Whimsy Stamps, MFT and Peachy Cheap, as well as lots of glitter and sparkle."
"Hi, I'm Becca! I was born & raised & have always lived in South Florida. I am married for 25 years and we have a small parrot named Rocky who sits on my computer as I create. I've been doing some type of craft since I was about 21 when my Mom taught me how to cross stitch."
"We started going to craft shows and I found scrapbooking, which eventually led me to card making. I craft every day and make so many cards that I give a lot of them away to a couple of charities every year. I can only hope that they bring some joy to someone!"

Be sure to visit her the following site and show her some love! 

Here are a few projects from our design team...

For this challenge, I created a Harry Potter related card using the Gryffindor colors. I used a Studio Calico stamp set that I had actually waited for years to have them restock. I think it's just too fun. I fussy cut Hedwig after coloring her just a bit. The background pattern are the other stamps using Versamark ink, which created a tone-on-tone effect. A little white gel pen, and it's purely magical!

I used a cute dragon stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop on my card.
