Fairy Happy Birthday

A card at last !!!............... after all the tidying malarkey yesterday and a busy day today I have just managed to make a card, its made following a sketch from Katiejane for the Lets get Stamping weekly challenge.
Last week I won best card in the very same challenge which was judged by the lovely sharon Armstrong and I won one of Sharon's fantastic downloads of beautiful Princess Grace, I have used another of Sharon's fantastic downloads on this card its Bella fairy.
Bella is sooooo sweet I love here best out of all sharon's lovely downloads.
I coloured Bella with my promarkers and added a little sparkle with my Sakura clear star then I stitched round the circle and distressed using Tim Holtz Milled lavender ink and gave it a spritz with glimmer mist, then I mounted the circle on a stitched/ distressed bazzill layered 6"x 6" square card added lots of Prima flowers and pearl brads.
Then I made a distressed heart embellishment using chipboard that I die cut into a heart shape using Sizzix primitive hearts die , I painted the heart with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paint and added a couple of shots of glimmer mist (which doesn't show up to well in the photo but is really pearly) added ribbon and a rose and voila !!!! here is the finished card
This card is also for the Crafty Creations Challenge who ask for a celebration card so what better celebration than a birthday and The Pink Elephant Color Challenge who ask this week for a card made from your favourite colour combo and lilac and lavender is one of mine, also over at Cute Card Thursday they want you to make a cute card and to use stitching so this card fits there as well , phew all this chit chat has made me thirsty so off for a coffee now before I start the next card , Have a great evening everyone
