Once upon a time....


Today I am here with a fairy tale themed card. Again I have tried my hand at just using dies....not as easy as one first thought!!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge blog- Anything goes
Magnolia Forever - Monochrome
Paradise of Magnolia- Sparkle and Shine
Paradise of Stamps- Fairy
Noor! Design UK challenge blog- Flowers and Lace

The papers that I used for this card are some of my fave papers that Pion have ever done, the Paris Flea Market. They are so versatile yet delicate and beautiful. I thought that they were perfect for a fairy tale card, all that dreamy pink!

On the darker pink die cut that the castle is on I embossed it with a heart embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

The dies I used are all Magnolia except for the shape of the card which is from Go Kreate. On the castle I used some crackle paint in 'Rock Candy' from the Distress Ink range. I sprayed the die cuts with glimmer mist and edged them with Distress Ink 'Vintage Photo' to make them stand out. I think it works great on the cat! I kinda imagined the cat to be like Salam from Sabrina the Teenage witch! This cat even has glittery whiskers!

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the moon stone brads.

The sentiment is from Magnolia also. On the sign post die I added mini alphas to read 'Fairy tale'

The resin corner is from Prima and can be found at Live and Love Crafts.

Every fairy tale needs bling so I added some rhinestones to the castle and the sign post.x

The lace trim is from Noor! Design Uk and I love the girly-ness of this trim!

To finish of I added a charm of the ultimate fairy...tinkerbell!

Hope you have a magical week ahead!
