Magical Fairy

I made this card for the Butterfly Challenge 'Spin the Wheel with the Letter X' where Mrs A wants to see Fairies, Gnomes, Pixies or Elves (I've obviously chosen the Fairy option).  I'm also entering the Allsorts 'Fairies, Fantasy and Magical' challenge and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Magical Fairies' Art Pad
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Floral Oval'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing matt
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Blackberry Lane'
Other; Silver holographic Card Candi, Wink of Stella

As the paper had a plain centre and patterned edges I attached it to cover the whole card front so the leaves framed the card.  I die cut and embossed the precoloured fairy image and attached it to the centre.  I flattered the Card Candi and glued it to the top and bottom corners of the card.  To finish I highlighted the fairy with a Wink of Stella, adding several layers to the wings so they had the same shimmer as the Card Candi.

Such a simple idea but I have never thought to flatten card candi before. It works a treat. Love the blue toning on this card. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.
