Pretty Fairy with Basic Grey

Hi Everyone,
I had a nice birthday yesterday. Lots of phones calls from friends and family with happy wishes. So sweet of them. And, today I have a pretty card with a Stamping Bella stamp. Love their stamps. Her name is Anise Ketto and she is paper pieced. I pieced her dress, wings, the centers of the flowers, and leaves of flower on right. I stamped her on a solid DP and layered with another. I sprayed this with Shimmer Mist for a bit of glitter. I cut strips of a printed DP and glued them down on the dark purple paper. I distressed the center image and the strips with distress ink.

Materials List:

Stamps: Anise Ketto - Stamping Bella; flower - Print Works Collection

Ink: Stazon; Fired Brick - Ranger

DP: Basic Grey Kioshi and Wisteria Collections

CS: Pale Plum - Stampin' Up

Shimmer Mist

Metal Dots

Detail shot. Can you see the shimmer mist? And you can see how I used different paper for each part of the image.

Well, that's about it for me today. I have to get the stuff together to make 40 Thanksgiving cards for Card Ministry on Monday. I have to cut everything then the gals with stamp and assemble. I have already designed the card so I just have to do the prep. Oh, and I have to come up with a few anniversary cards too. Have a great day friends!
