Another Fairy Moon card!

It's me again! Here's another card using the Stitchy Bear Fairy Moon digi that I used for my Dream Valley DT card.

The card base is cut with a scalloped Grand Nestie and the paper (which was loose in my paper drawer so I can't say where it came from) is done with a plain one. The background for the fairy was made with Distress Inks, this time Scattered Straw, Broken China and Spiced Marmalade.

I'd seen cards with elegant trellises made from die-cut flourishes some time ago, so I thought I'd try it. It took ages to organise! I used 2 Marianne flourishes, and a Magnolia one (twice.) The bases of the Wild Orchid flowers are also made with a Magnolia die, and the butterflies are Martha Stewart. The only glitz is dots of gold Perfect Pearls on the butterflies' bodies.

Too late I noticed that I stuck the image at an angle instead of straight, but luckily she seems to be admiring the top butterfly, phew! That's my excuse!

I'm entering this into the Flutter By Wednesdays challenge, where, as well as a fairy, butterfly or angel they want punching and/or die-cutting. I think I've fulfilled the criteria lol!

This did take an age to make, but I really enjoyd it! Hope you're all having a good day!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Mags I thought your challenge card was lovely, but this one is just gorgeous! Love the design and the way you've embellished it, those tresses are beautiful. I like this image cos it doesnt have to be upright, I think it looks perfect at the angle you have it.CoB
