Fairy Dust

I am not sure how long I've had this image coloured up, but she's been sat in my work-in-progress pile for months and I've only gotten around to making her up into a card tonight.  She's a lovely fairy image from Funky Kits and is really quite large.  This is a 6" square card, so perhaps that shows just how large she it.  I trimmed the image and rounded off two corners before matting it onto purple card.

I used a Magnolia border die to decorate the strip across the middle and some spotty ribbon purple ribbon as a trim.  The papers are also ones I've had for ages (when I found this pad I went mad and bought about 3 pads of it in 6" and 12" pads).  I love them so much that I hate to use them, but I think this little fairy deserved them!  :0)  Lastly the ribbon, wow, how long have I had this.... This card really is created from some old stash.  Hmm, that makes a change!

I usually take a couple of minutes to set up my photos so that I get the light to glisten off any glitter, but this photo was actually taken at a bit of a odd angle.  I had my kitty on my lap at the time, and any cat slave will know that you can't disturb a kitty when they're gracing you with their presence.  Despite the awkward angle my first attempt really caught the glitter on her fairy wings well, so all was well!
