A fairy birthday card

Happy Wednesday!!

I needed a birthday card for a little girl who's turning 5 soon and I thought this stamp from Lily of the valley would be perfect to use!



I heat embossed the image and then colored it using derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil.
Designer Paper is from Bo Bunny (I think), card stock is from Stampin up and Couture (white).

I embellished with a punched border (martha stewart punch), some prima flowers, punched flowers (stampin up punch), Tim Holtz flourish die (sizzix), a paper doily, ribbon and silver cord and some pearls. I also did some sewing with my janome mini and applied lots of stickles and then I used some scissors to distress the edges.


My card fits these challenges:
That should be about it.

I also wanted to remind you again - if you haven't yet played in this month's Penny Black @ All sorts challenge, you have just about one more week to do so. Some fabulous cute Penny Black stamps are up for grabs to several lucky winners. The theme is "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Would love it if you'd play along, you can enter up to 3 times with a new project.

Have a great day!
Ellie.
