Fantasy

This is the card I have made for MTTC challenge, fantasy was the theme this time and I didn't really know what to do. My daughter who will be 23 this month loves fairies and the colour purple, I killed two birds with one stone so to speak.
This card is simply matts and layers, I used a die for the shape where I stamped the fairy and the sentiment. I used a distress ink to go around the edges of the shapes and also on the patterened paper. The first layer I used a punch to give the bottom a decorative edge. I made a smaller matt with a contrasting paper placed all the layers together then tied ribbon around it before placing it on the base card which is 8x8. To finish I added a few gems.
Thnak you for looking x
