Glitz and Glitter - A Challenge for You!

Do we ever have a fun challenge for you this week at Fairy Fun Friday. It's all about glitz and glitter so get your bling on and come on over! It's that easy - no special image to use or sketch to follow - just bling it up to your heart's content. You can win 5 free images from the Prairie Fairy.

Here is my glitzy card to share. It uses the darling Tip Toe Fairy image from Prairie Fairy. Isn't she sweet? I'm not usually big on over-glitzy cards, but I have to admit I had fun with this one and like the way it turned out. It has just enough vintage appeal to please me. The paper is K&Co. and is glittered. I used a base of Groovy Guava and layered a piece of Very Vanilla over it which I had stamped around the edge with a text stamp and a flourish to give it some interest. I distressed the edges and sponged them with a combination of Frayed Burlap and Grovy Guava ink. The rhinestones are from Prima and I used two Spellbinders dies for the center medallion. Lots of craft foam was used to pop up the many layers. Any questions? Leave them in the comments and then check back to read my response.

Hope you'll join in the fun with us the week at Fairy Fun Friday. And take a few minutes to stop by the blogs of the other team mebers and leave them some love!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I made for Fairy Fun Friday. I so appreciate your comments.
Blessings & hugs
