Magical Fairy

Edit:  Won top 3 honors at CES Challenge #20

Hi folks.  I was just messin' around today and decided to work up a card using a Lily of the Valley image.  They are some of my favorites and I don't take time to use them near often enough, soooo I thought it was a good thing to do with my time AND it kept me from cleaning my house that's much in need of cleaning!!.


I think this little gal was the first LOTV image I ever purchased (although that could be wrong).  And just like my last post, this is the first time I've inked her up.  I've been trying to make a greater effort to stop buying stamps (I'm currently going through withdrawal) and use some of those I've purchased but never used!!!  It's really quite sinful.  But it is soooo hard not to pick up some of the new cuties that get released all the time.  Aside from all that, it was wayyy past time to play with this little fairy.


Do ya think I could have gone any more pinky-greeny???  Hmmm... over the top???  Well... these are a couple of my fave colors, so I say no... it's just right.  Hope you agree!  I haven't used any of the BG sultry collection for ages and thought they would fit miss tiptoe to a tee.  : )  Add a few WOC roses, some pearls and glitter and wham, bam, thank you maam, ya got yourself a card!!
