A new stamp and a couple of challenges

Hello and a happy saturday to all of you. I made this card last night for this week's cute card thursday challenge to use the colors teal and red. It also fits the challenge over at stamp something which is to use a charm on your project.

I used the lavender fairy stamp by stamps happen. It is large stamp and I had a hard time getting a good image. It took me many tries and it still is not perfect. How I wish this would be a digital stamp!!



Image was colored with copics. For my papers I used the new SU bermuda bay and real red card stock.
I added stickles to the fairy wings and the butterfly as wel as the bermuda bay edge on the left side. To finish the card off, I added a couple of prima flowers, with a large flower charm that came from a claire's boutique necklace that I purchased for 75% off. (I love clearence everything!!).

Thanks so much for visting my blog today. Recipe is below.

Recipe:
stamps: Stamps happen - lavender fairy, stampin up - wonderful words
paper: bermuda bay, real red, bristol vellum board white
