My solution actually was a repurposed printer alignment info sheet that 'accidentally' got printed on white cardstock. The thought of throwing away a full sheet of cardstock made me nauseous! :) So I held onto it for a few days (several months ago). Then I got to thinking about using the part of the page with the blue and black markings like a designer patterned paper. And viola! I found a beautiful butterfly clip art image that I had sized and copied to 9 times to fill the page and printed the butterflies over the alignment markings!!!

More scanned views of this cute card:
Did you notice the blue jeweled gems? the little black pennant banner? the white paint pen swirled lines in the wings or the white painted tooth? What about the touches of gold? (antennaes, dots on edge of skirt, ring for carrying the tooth, and the star wand)
The "Charlee" tooth fairy image was colored with a combination of white paint pen, gold paint pen, extra fine point marker pens in navy blue and purple, and colored pencils in light brown for skin, pink for cheeks, yellow for hair, and sky blue for skirt overlay.
Lots of wings with this card, too! With the 'household object' butterfly, the butterfly patterned paper, and the Scribbles Design image, they combine into a charming thinking of you card!
