Garden Of Wishes

Well,it's nearly the weekend,normally I'd be doing a little happy dance but this Friday means I've only two full days left before I have to go back to work :( Oh well,I'd best make the most of the weekend! Now,a very lovely scrapbooking friend gave me a little gift,my first "Lili Of The Valley" stamp, isn't she lovely,the friend and the fairy! The stamp is called "Garden Of Wishes". A brilliant reason to enter this weeks challenge at LOTV,I coloured the beautiful image with Copics,added stickles to her wings and as the challenge is Circles I did"out of the circle" wings using Revolution circles through the Cuttlebug.The background was made by stamping pink dotty circles on to white card and rubbing over it with luster rub ons which add a pearly sheen. I then cut some flowers from the pink DP and added roses to their centres. I thought I'd get clever and punch small circles from the paper,emboss them using Swiss Dots folder and glue them to the back of the focal circle,what a waste of time that was, it looks like I've used a scalloped Nestie, I could have saved myself some time.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
LOTV85,Circles,
Fussy And Fancy,Embossing or paper piecing,
Stamp Something,With flowers,
Wags and Whiskers 48,Punches,
Crafts and Me,Spread your wings,
Creative Card Crew,Fantasy.
That's me for this evening,have a lovely weekend,
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
