Clearly Besotted Fairy Jasmine

This week I was lucky to be the winner of the recent challenge over at Let's Craft and Create and I won a gorgeous stamp from Clearly Besotted called "Fairy Jasmine".  As I make my cards solely to raise funds for different charities it means so much to win anything (well I do enjoy just taking part but to get something like a Top 3 or Top 5 or even a physical win means a lot) and I like to put it to good use so I I couldn't wait for fairy Jasmine to "come out to play".  I've used Memento ink pad, Promarkers and highlighted areas with a white gel pen.  As you can see I didn't make just one card but I made two.  I have paper pieced the dresses and crowns on both images.  I have used a piece of Coredinations card stock I got free with some embossing folders and embossing using a zig-zag on the first card and stars on the second and I have sanded back to the core.  

For the first card the backing papers are from the Papermania Happy Days.  I love these papers.  This card has been finished off with some "with love" ribbon, mulberry paper stars I was given, peel off waste squares and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.
The backing papers for this second card are Glitz Cashmere dame which I won in some candy.  This card has been finished off with some raffia ribbon, gingham ribbon, mulberry stars, peel-off circles and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday - Anything goes
4 Crafty Chicks - Birthday
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
