totally not me!


#Card #craft #fairy
No cute image what's going on? This card is for my niece who is turning 12, which i think is a very awkward age. I didn't want to go cute in case she thought it was childish, so i was searching through my stash and found this image. Then i panicked!!! hopefully it turned out ok, i think it did, just need some grungy looking card now as all mine is pretty pastel or brights. I even ripped card, inked edges, inked paper and the greeting. i definitely needed a lay down after trying so many new things! 
The image is from lilli of the valley (i think), the papers are all from my minds eye, the blue card is coredinations, the pink card is from my stash, the greeting is from craftwork cards, i die cut the flower from a joy die cut, i used Tim Holtz old paper to ink everything.i glittered the wings with stickles and the gems are from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

thanks for looking x
