Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 17: whimsical/fantasy ...

This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 17: whimsical/fantasy ... Please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team and to join in the challenge.

I've used the 'fairy and butterfly' image kindly supplied by the sponsor, the Stamping Boutique, stamping over it with an oval inked with stazon vibrant violet. I then tore round a perspex oval and edged with some of the vibrant violet. The background of the card blank was randomly stamped with a Dawn Bibbly swirls stamp inked with the stazon vibrant violet, before adding the strips of gingham ribbon (I had to cheat with the purple one because it wasn't long enough, so the gap is hidden beneath the Craftime sentiment.
