Flower Garden Fairy Cupcake

Today I have a card to share with you which is a little different to my usual style.  These fabulous images are from a sheet of stamps from Oxford Impressions Stamps, which I bought recently.  There are some wonderful vintage type images on the sheet and I used three main stamps and four of the sentiments for this card.

The background layer is from the Pocket Full of Posies papers by DCWV.  Over this a piece of green gingham was added which was first distressed a little with Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the edges.  The fairy, cupcake and bakery poster images were all distressed using various colours of DI.  I curved the cupcake a little before adding it with silicone glue so it is raised up from the background, although this isn't noticeable in the photograph. 

Finally I added two flat backed gold beads and a little Diamond Stickles to the wings, the sentiments and in the centres of the tiny flowers.  The layout is based on the sketch for the Let's Get Stamping challenge this week over on so I am going to enter my card for this week's challenge.

Thanks for visiting today, it's great to see you here.
