Fairy Sparkle

Hi Everyone
It's very cold here at the moment so I am glad that I am snuggled up in the warm.  As I am working at the weekend I have tomorrow and Thursday off.  I am planning on doing some tidying up in my craft room and getting some crafting done.  Just haven't had a lot of time to spend crafting since the start of the year.

Today I would like to share a card made using some stamps that I got free many weeks ago in a magazine.  I have so many stamps that I haven't used yet so it was nice to finally make something with this one.

I started out by using distress ink through an Inkables stencil from Bee Crafty.  I used various shades of purple.  The fairy and fairy dust images were stamped with versamark and embossed with some Black Super Sparkle embossing powder from Personal Impressions (although the sparkle doesn't really show up that much on this photo).  The plants and sentiment were stamped with black memento ink.  Once all the stamping was complete I lightly inked around the edge with some purple distress ink and matted onto some purple card.  A bit of ribbon and a dazzler completed the card.

As you can see I decided to do another but in a different colourway. 

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I do appreciate all the lovely comments that you leave me.
