Blaming each other for our spending!!!

I saw this gorgeous card that Lozzy had made and just had to have this Sweet Pea Stamps image by Karen Middleton called "Little Pink Fairie" - and it so happens that one of my cards that I made earlier this month using the Sweet Pea Stamps image called "Serenity" by Concetta Kilmer caused Lozzy to buy the image and make this beautiful card - well it's nice to blame others on our spending isn't it????

Sweet Pea Stamps image called "Little Pink Fairie" by Karen Middleton is available in a rubber stamp and a digital stamp and the image called "Serenity" by Concetta Kilmer is available in a rubber stamp and a digital stamp.

I have coloured the image with my Promarkers, added Stickles to the fairy wings and added a cloudy background with a handmade template and a blue Pan Pastel and fine tool.  The backing papers I have used are Bearly Mine Designs Rose's Dream, Mini Dots (underneath the image), Love's Dream (for the flowers) and Spring Surprise.
I have distressed all the papers with a chalk ink pad.  The image is laying on top of a Tonic doily die-cut that was made from a piece of free Coredinations that came with an embossing folder.  I have sanded it to distress it.  The card has been finished off with some raffia ribbon, flowers made from punches with pearls centres and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
