Fairy Greetings

Good morning folks, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I spent mine in my craft room as it is far too hot to go outside.
This week at Die Cut Dreams we challenge you to use


I have inked up Candytuft and coloured her with a mixture of copics and prisma´s, stamped the wings again on acetate, glittered well and 3d´d then added touches of glamour dust to the flowers. Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, papers and pearls from stash.
