Congratulations

A congratulations card today for a friend.  I wanted to incorporate a fairy and keep the card fairly CAS.


I started by covering a card blank with purple card.  I assembled everything else on a piece of card slightly smaller than the base card to make it easier to get everything level.  The top half of the card is embossed with a CB ' Swiss Dots' folder.  I used a MB ' Stitched Country Border' die to make the stripes, overlapping the layers.  The Congratulations ribbon is by Dovecraft, which I wrapped around the card.  The Poppystamps 'Posing Faerie' die comes in in two parts, so the image can be used without the wings.  It would be perfect for a ballerina without the wings.  When everything was assembled, I attached the decorated piece of card to the base card, leaving a narrow purple frame. 

I am joining in the following challenges:

Your silhouette fairy is so pretty, Liz, and she really pops against the embossed background. I love how you have created the stripes too. There is a lot of visual interest in your card balanced with lovely white space. Great to see you at Less is More :)

This is a beautifully designed card Liz with the pretty scalloped skirt at the bottom and the dots embossing over the top half, and the sweet silhouette fairy sits perfectly on top of the sentiment ribbon. x
