Cheerful stamp pad challenge 111

This is my design card for the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 111: fairies. Please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

For my card I used the lovely Ching chou kuik's 'magic spread' digi kindly supplied by our sponsor, Sweet Pea Stamps. I coloured with spectrum noir pencils and cut the image with a Spellbinders nestie die, brushing with antique linen distress ink before removing from the die. This was then matted on to another Spellbinders nestie die cut using some matt gold card, which was also embossed. The paisley embossed background was created with an embossalicious folder using some cream card with gold glitter, brushing this with the antique linen ink, adding the strip of corrugated card, sentiment, gems and hessian and wood flowers. Everything was then matted on to matt gold card and then a kraft card blank.

I based my card on the sketch given for Die cuttin' divas challenge 214:
