Autumn Fairies

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Followers

A quick post for me today as I am still not feeling 100% yet, I hate being sick it drives me mad.  This has really taken it out of me.  Luckily I had made all my cards which were scheduled to post whilst I was away. 

Today's card I made using Lavinia backing card and Lavinia dancing fairies silhouette stamp.  I love these stamps and I can see me purchasing a lot more in the future.

I have used cream hammered card and then using 2 different scraps of card in autumnal colours layered them at different angles.  I stamped the fairies on the backing card using Perfect Medium and Cosmic Shimmer Black embossing powder.  I just added a dragonfly to finish this off.  To finish of the card I added 3 different colours of card candi.

Thank you for stopping by Today

Hugs xxxx
