Pretend Play

I've got another sneak peek at tomorrow's Stamp of the Month image by Designed2Delight.  This image looks to me like a little girl playing pretend fairy.

This is "Flutterby Fairy" and I think she is precious!
To have received her for free, you would've had to play in last week's challenge at Delightful Inspirations. Or, you can go to the Designed2Delight shop and purchase her starting tomorrow.
Here is my card using  "Flutterby Fairy" and a sentiment by TLC Creations:
 Apparently, I can't tell the difference between fairies and angels!!  Even though the image is called "Flutterby Fairy" I chose a sentiment about an angel. *thumping head*   Oh well, too late now!
Her wings look so dark in this picture.  They are pretty gold sparkly wings (Stickles) because this little girl LOVES gold.  Don't we all?!
 
Some of you may like my clouds, so I will tell you what I did.  I took some chipboard I had lying around and freehand cut some cloud shapes.  I used those as masks.  I also masked the little girl.  I sponged Ranger Distress inks all over until I was an inky mess.  So fun!   *grin*
 When I removed the cloud masks I used a fine point Pentel pen to add dashes to the clouds and all around the outer edge.
 
I did not have a small red flower brad, so I embossed red glitter on to a pink flower brad.  I had used red Stickles on the heart on her shirt and I wanted to match that.
 
One last detail, I used some discarded product packaging chipboard for the red flowers I diecut.

Okay, enough boring details about the card.  I'm entering it in these challenges:
PaperPlay - use something not intended for crafting
Paper Sundaes - sparkle, diecuts, yellow
Pollycraft - fun & games
Scrap-Creations - flowers
Tuesday Throwdown - brads or eyelets
Creative Card Crew - child's play
Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
The Stamping Boutique - winged things
I hope everyone has a great day filled with creative pastimes!

Your card is absolutely gorgeous, and if I may ask...what kind of paper do you use for your images? I love the texture.

Love it. The clouds are a fun touch and the glittery goodness on the wings is fab. Angel/fairy close enough, I think the senti is just perfect!
