Aurora Wings Wisteria Fairy

Good morning to all my my lovely friends and  followers I have two new followers to welcome this morning Lea and Michelle so glad you have both found my blog and thank you for joining I hope you continue to come and visit often, Well I've finally got round to a post I was very busy at the weekend with Miles visiting and  having family and friends around it was all worth it though we both had a great weekend.

Now onto my card for today as you are aware the DT from Crafting by Designs are still on holiday and we don't start back till next week. Today's Challenge over at Crafting by Designs is Things With Wings and  the sponsor is Aurora Wings.

Prize: $10 credit to store

 I do love Aurora Wings stamps so decided to do a DT card for this challenge. I used the gorgeous Wisteria Fairy I just loved colouring her.

The inside of the card

Card Recipe

Blank Card is a from Which Craft and is a Vintage Elegance Stepper card I got a pack at the GNPE
Image is Wisteria Fairy Aurora Wings painted with Derwent Inktense Pencils sprinkled with Glamour Dust and some Wink of Stella.
Papers are Maja Design from live and  love Crafts and the edges are lightly inked with Tattered Rose Distress Ink
Butterflies are a Joycraft die
Lace is from Whitby Crafts 
Flowers are Wild Orchid Craft and Live and  Love Crafts. Bead Stem is from Dainty Crafts Washington
Small pearl flowers are The Hobby House from Whitby Crafts
Sentiments are LOTV Sentiment Tags

I did like the Vintage Elegance Stepper card when it was finished but it took me ages to cover it and a craft knife is not my favourite tool!!. I think if I use them again I'll leave it white and  just ink the edges.
I hope some of you will pop over and  enter this challenge its a great theme and sponsor this week.
Enjoy your week everyone hugs Carole x
