Fairies - on Tiptoe

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing a card made with the beautiful Lili Of The Valley stamp Fairies - On Tiptoe. This has to be one of the prettiest fairy images around.

The Lili of the Valley Challenge this week is a sketch by Bev and this card follows that sketch.

The image has been stamped with Memento ink and has been coloured using Promarkers. I edged the dress, wings and flowers with Sakura Clear star to give a bit of sparkle.

I cut the image out using Spellbinders Eyelet Circles die and inked around the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink while still in the die. I made a faux nestie and edged it with the clear star.

The sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio. I cut the tags out with Spellbinders Labels Eight, inked them with Spun Sugar while still in the die and made a faux nestie for each one. I punched a hole in them and added some pretty fluffy yarn.

I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch for the border. The flowers and brads are American Crafts, roses are from my stash. The leaves were cut from Spellbinders Foliage die set. The papers are My Minds Eye Lost & Found and DCWV Nursery. All the papers and card were edged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.

The card was assembled as per Bev's sketch and I added a pearl in each corner.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
