Vintage Fairytales

I am sorry to have been quiet this week. If you look below you will see why. As I have mentioned before my team, the Sassy Lassies are entering the TGF Battle of the Groups competition. We got through with last weeks' entry by Jan (thank you to everyone that voted for us), and this week I volunteered to make the card. The theme is Easel cards, and this is mine.
Here is a slightly different view showing some of the dimension.
Now, I will firstly admit to 'casing' Dena at Dena's Stamping Corner for the layout. Her cards are beautiful and you really need to check out her blog. The flower is a home made embellishment that I recently learned at a workshop. Again, it was Dena's influence that made me decide to use one on this card. It just needed something..................

The image is the TGF Summer Fairy (which I won a few weeks back), the papers are DCWV from the Once upon a Time stack. I distressed all of the edges with a Brushed Corduroy ink pad, stamped the 'Believe' and swirl at the top left from a Fancy Pants stamp set, used gold stickles on her wings and sprayed a lot of Amber Fire Glimmer Mist from Lindy's Stamp Gang on the flower to give it a lovely sheen. (phew!)

Now, hopefully, my teamies will like this card as much as I do and they won't make me do another! You will go and vote for us again this week.......won't you????
