Shimmery Sparkles Faery

Happy Saturday :-)
Hope you're having a great weekend so far with some nice weather. I woke up bright and early today to some cooler weather and clouds, but now the sun is out with a few clouds scattered around. Love this type of weather! 

I have a card to share today using one of the new Whimsy Stamps just released last week. 
I went with a natural and gold look, so it's not very colorful, but I like how it turned out. 
Image was colored using copic markers and fussy cut. Glitter was applied to the wings and wand. The original stamp has some little stars scattered around the wand, but I had to cut them away to make it work for my design. I couldn't find a designer paper that would have worked, so I simply made my own by stamping a sentiment and some music notes onto so saffron cards stock, then inked the edges using distress ink. Sentiments used are also from Whimsy Stamps from a couple years ago. I finished off the card by adding a scallop border to the left side and a little button with gold cord onto the little "flag" on the right side. Christmas tree die I used here was also just released. 

You can find the Whimsy products here:

 I am playing along here:
Crafting-With-Friends  Anything Goes
Jingle Belles - Use Something From Your Stash that's at least a year old and tell what it is (sentiments, border punch, twine, buttons are all very old)
Kitty Bee Designs - Make Music (music notes on background paper)
Simply Create Too -Early Holiday Wishes
Winter Wonderland  A Christmas Fairy
 
And that should be all for today. Thanks so much for visiting!

I think the neutral colours work very well Ellie and the little touches of blues and sparkle really brig the sweet image to the fore.
