One Sweet Challenge - January 2013

Here is a card I've made with my favourite Sweet Pea Stamp by Caron Vinson called "Blue Fairy".  I have coloured her in with tones of blue Promarkers, highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and then stamped with a See D's scroll/dot stamp and a blue Versafine ink pad around the edge.  The sparkly glitter backing papers were some that I won in candy.  They are gorgeous - too nice to use really - but a nightmare to photograph!!!  I have used a Martha Stewart lattice punch on some holographic card for some extra sparkle and shine.  The flowers were all white but I have coloured one in cool aqua and one in grey to go with the One Sweet Challenge topic this month of "blue, white and silver".  I have finished the card off with a Marianne Designs die-cut, Craftwork Cards sentiment, butterfly charm, jump rings, old button, sparkly white wire to attach the charm to the button and some tear drop shaped gems I won in some candy.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
