Fairy with Present

I made this quick card for a young friend who likes fairies and anything pink.  I'm entering the first challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond 'Matting and Layering' and the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.

Card blank: 6"  6" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Fairy with Present'
Stamp: Ultimate Crafts L'aquarelle Designs 'Sentiments' (magazine freebie)
Die: Memory Box 'Classic Numbers'
Ink: Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid
Card: Cerise matt
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Bella'
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed the parcel paper, layered it onto cerise card and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed the precoloured topper, and die cut the '6' from the bottom corner.  I used the 'Today' that I had previously cut from a larger stamp and using my MISTI I stamped it at the side of the die cut '6'.  This panel was layered onto cerise card and attached to the centre of the card.  I die cut '6' from cerise card and inlaid it into the topper.  To finish I highlighted the fairy with a Wink of Stella.

So pretty! A great idea to cut off the word today from a larger stamp, it's so useful for many occasions. Thank you for joining in our first challenge at Back to Basics.

Just a delightful card for a 6 yr old...they love pink at this age! That is a wonderful fairy image, perfect with the present in her hands & nice detail to inlay the square. Brilliant that you had this present themed paper to use for the background. Nice work on the stamp surgery to make it fit your needs too. The card is lovely! TFS & Hugs
