...a bed of roses...

Good morning! Just a quick post from me with my DT card for this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The theme is a lovely one 'fairies and fantasy'. I used a beautiful but sadly neglected stamp that I've had for years. This little fairy looks so peaceful and innocent, lost in her own dreamworld. Coloured with copics, her wings stamped again onto acetate and placed on top. The roses are die cut using Little B dies. The papers are Wild Rose Studio (such fabulous colours, I couldn't resist!). A little distressing , faux stitching and some Frantage . I hope you'll find the time to join us this challenge, just click here to add your card or to check out the fab creations of the Sweeties.
 Our sponsor this week is Crafty Devils with a very generous prize of a £15 voucher.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, hope you have a lovely weekend.
