Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Happy Monday to you all.

A very wet day here in Warrington, a few projects to finish off and going to stay in the craft room today.

I had a fabulous time yesterday at Maria's workshop, catching up with my crafting friends.

My card today is made using the stencil from my Clarity membership for July.

Step by Step

1. A5 cream card which I have matted and layered Kraft card onto base.
2. The topper I created by first creating a background of hills with the sun, using distress inks bundle sage and stormy sky.  I then used the stencil from last month's Clarity membership by drawing around the trees and colouring with distress ink vintage photo.  I then stamped the fairies, flowers and toadstools using Versafine.
3. I matted and layered topper onto brown card onto base card.
4. I stamped the word magical with Versafine then matted and layered onto Kraft card.
5. To finish off I added 3 black gems.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
