Little Fairy

Hello fellow crafters,
When I began my blog (almost one month ago) I had no idea there were so many creative challenges out in blogland. I have become aware of dozens of them, but I am sure they are probably only the 'tip of the iceberg'.
They are really making me think about many elements of my designs, and I am using stamps I have not used for so long, I have forgotten I had them. This little sweetie is one of them.

I have used several different Spellbinder and Marianne dies, and the corner flourishes are 2 Marianne diecuts that I cut in half.

A close up view - the flowers are blinged to the max with Ranger 'Crystal' and 'Platinum' Stickles.

The inside is decorated to match the front. This is the first time in ages since I have made a 'traditional' opening card.

The challenges I would like to enter with this card are...
          I Love Promarkers - 'Fairies'
          Paperplay               - 'Pins and Pearls'
          Colour Create         - 'Rose Pink, Kraft and White'

Stamp - Hero Arts
Colouring - Promarkers
Cardstock - Bazzill, Stampin' Up
Paper - First Edition 'Sweet Owl'
Dies - Spellbinder, Marianne
Punch - Martha Stewart 'Branch'
Sentiment - computer generated 'Adine'
Other - Flowers, Kaisercraft pearls, pin with pearls, Stickles, all from my junk stash

As it is Monday, and I have a busy week ahead of me, I had better do my impression of Domestic Goddess...I would much rather be crafting though.

Thank you for looking....happy crafting.
