Fairy Birthday Wishes

Greetings to you all, I hope you are well.
Today's card is a black and white (I think monochrome is classy!) fairy themed birthday card-could be given to a child or an adult as magic is ageless ;)

The central image is a topper from Lelli-Bots Crafts, from the Fairy Magic kit (available in my store once I get it up and running!).  The topper is uncoated so colour can be added using alcohol markers, or inks but I have left this one uncoloured.  The black and white star backing paper is also in the kit, along with the sentiment.

Taking inspiration from a card made by a friend of mine, I used white card embossed with a criss cross design and placed a pearl at each of the crossing points-I absolutely love this look!
The finishing touches: silver ribbon, black feather and the rounded corners of the top two layers, make this a classy card that is, at the same time, fun :)
I am a fan of fairies-magic in general really!  Even though I trained as a scientist and am incredibly logically minded, I do like the idea that there are things that cannot be explained (yet).  I want to believe in magic!!
I was once described as having a 'head full of magic' and I quite like that phrase so I will keep that as a way to describe myself!!
Ok, enough of me talking about myself!
Thank you for stopping by and, until next time, Happy Crafting xx
