Things that fly

This weeks challenge over at Bah Humbug is a nice easy one, 'Things that fly' and it was also a fab excuse to use one of my new Sweet Pea stamps. Rachel Anderson's 'Snow Fae' is such a beautiful stamps though so I didn't need much of an excuse lol.

I've coloured the image with promarkers and embossed the fairy's wings with clear sparkle EP. the snowflakes are glittered with Judikins prisma glitter and the little stars on the fairy's dress are coloured with sakura clear stardust. I've used a couple of scraps of backing paper from my Christmas stash and punched one with a MS border punch and distressed the other with Tumbled Glass DI. The sentiment is from the lovely Lynne at Sentiments 4 You To finish off i've added some gems, white organza ribbon and a crystal buckle.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Ai Factory: Monochromatic 
Bah Humbug: Things that fly
Crafts and me: things with wings
Craft us Crazy: winter theme
Crafty Purple Frog: A touch of magic
Paperplay: Get sentimental
Paper Romance: anything goes
Sketch and Stash: I've used the sketch but rotated it

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you've had a good weekend. I'm back at work after my holiday tomorrow so I'm not a happy bunny at all. Still I've made the most of the last few hours of my annual leave by getting inky and messy in my craft room :-)
