First Time As A Fairy

Good morning everyone - picture the scene if you will - a 40+, slightly plump lady, in baggy tights, sparkly ballet slippers, fairy wings, and antennae.  Am I taking being a Fairy a bit too seriously?  What do you mean, the costume isn't compulsory?!

Well, it is my first week as a GDT member for LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES CHALLENGE and I think the last time I was this nervous was when I took my driving test.  And that was a long time ago.  Wheels were still carved from stone then.

The theme for this week's challenge is a gorgeous one of DIAMONDS AND PEARLS so get your bling on girls!

Here is my card:

Ingredients for this are:
Stamped Image  Lili of the Valley Positively Pampered
Medium  Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Paper/Card  White hammered cardstock, Cuttlebugged with tiny flower folder, coral DCWV 
Extras  pale blue satin ribbon, pearl ribbon slider, gems and pearls from stash
Martha Stewart butterfly punch, EK Success small retro flower punch,
Craftwork Cards sentiment

So that's my first one!  Thank you to all my wonderful followers and regular visitors who have left me such kind and supportive comments.  I know I have gone on about this quite a bit, but this is the ultimate for me, especially as you know how much I adore my Lili stamps.  One down, three to go!



Hugs, Squirrel xxx

I think you did a great job with this card. The embossed background looks great and so do the little flowers. Of course I like the image too and I think adding some bling around the mirror was a very clewer idea. :) Hugs!

Sparkly ballet slippers ROCK! And they make you look so skinny!

Love, love, love the card! So many pearls, even pearl ribbon buckle. WOw! And look at all those gems lining the mirror, too cute. Okay, the more I see the round greetings the more I regret not getting any. Could be another Lili order in my future!

Don't know about the wings, but you should certainly have a magic wand! You've done your usual brilliant job with your LOTV stamps. Loved the bling around the mirror, perfect touch! I think you make a darling fairy, esp in those sparkly ballet slippers.
