Green fairy

Good morning and happy weekend.
It's been a bit of a mixed bag weatherwise here this week- quite a lot of rain and not too warm most days so I've spent a bit of time in the craft room and took the opportunity to colour up this gorgeous Morgan's Artworld image. I made a twisted easel base, covered it with a beautiful swirly green DP, added my flowers, die cuts lace and pearls. The flowers are stamped onto vellum and embossed with white EP, fussy cut and layered together. The die cut sentiment is from Tonic Studios, it's actually a Christmas one but I cut off the 'Christmas' bit!
This week at Sweet Stampin' 
Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog
Team Wends have a lovely 'Fairies and Fantasy' challenge for you- so I gatecrashed with this card.
As always, there are some beautiful creations from Team Wends to enjoy so please do hop on over and take a look.
I hope you'll be tempted to play along but please remember to include some stamping.
Thanks for visiting 
enjoy the weekend.
