Love gives us a fairytale...

Hi folks!
Here's a card I made using Joanna Sheen's More Than Words Cdrom. I thought this panel would be great with a little fairy stamped, sitting onto one of the flowers. The sentiment is so lovely and whimsical.
I covered my base card with some dark glitterboard. I then stamped some leafy swirls onto a piece of black cardstock with versamark. Then got my perfect pearl pigments powders and swirled them straight on with a soft dry brush.. I deckled the edges with my Carl trimmer and matted this onto a deckled layer of green pearlescent card. I printed the image straight onto some linen card and stamped with the fairy, as mentioned above. I punched out some butterflies using my Martha Stewart punch and added turquoise stickles to the wing tips.
This is a much larger card than I usually make. It's at least 8 inches tall.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Ciao for now!
