A Kind Of Magic!

Greetings to you one and all, I hope you are all well :)

I have labyrinthitis lately as well as all other ailments, but it means that, as I have to be sitting down, I have the time to blog!  Trying to see the silver lining to each cloud these days ;)

So, here is the first of the posts: I am a huge fan of all things mythical as they invoke imagination-without which life is in danger of being a dull ole place! So I do love the fairies from Lavinia Stamps. In fact, I have gone all 'Lavinia Stamps' on this card!!

The background is one of the papers they make, I have added some vine leaves and ivy stamped in onyx black versafine ink around the edges. The stargazing couple is one of my favourites, they are so cute! They also in the versafine black ink.  The spiral of stars and the 'happily ever after' stamps are done in versamark and then Sparkling Snow Wow! embossing glitter was used.

The small stars stamp was done in versamark and then Black Twinkle Wow! embossing glitter-I do love using embossing powders, it's like magic when you apply heat, and who doesn't like a bit of magic in their days?!
I layered this onto some silver mirror card and then onto some beautiful teal card-this card is such a lovely colour that I hate to cut it!!
As there is a lot going around Facebook and Twitter about cancer awareness, I included a pink ribbon on this card in memory of my mum.  Some pink gems to finish, and voila!

Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think :)
Happy crafting xx
