Sparkly distress - 2nd post for today

Good afternoon. After blog hopping and catching up with some peeps this morning I saw this image on Vikki's card here and I just knew I 'needed' it lol!!!

I thought it would be perfect for the following challenges:

Sir Stampalot - Fantasy
Crafts and Me  - Fairies or Wings
Cupcake Crafts - Make your own Flowers

For both Sir Stampalot and Crafts & Me it is their first challenge, so please pop over and support them.

I really enjoyed making this card. I started by creating the background with Worn Lipstick & Frayed Burlap Distress Inks. Then stamped the swirl randomly with the same inks in each corner. The fllowers were cut from scraps of my favourite Nitwits papers, shaped, layered and glittered. The gorgeous fairy image from TGF has been coloured with the distress inks, the flower paper-pieced and the wings sprinkled with Glamour Dust. The sentiment is from Pollycraft (I think) and I had a go at glittering the edges - I got the inspiration for this from the very talented Pops - her work can be seen here I still have a long way to go before I can match this standard!!!!

Definitely off to look at flooring now (see previous post).
Enjoy the rest of the day.
Take care
