Fairy good wishes

Hope this finds you all happy and healthy and ready to tackle all the world and life throws at you. I decided to ink one of my sweet pea stamps that I won a wee while ago at crafts and me. I was a little apprehensive as when you see these images on other crafters cards they always look so stunning, partly as they are such fab images and partly as they are such fab crafters so I am a bit concerned that I haven't done the image justice.
I decided I'd go that bit further and try to do a soft girlie card, must have got part way there as my son said it was too girlie for the cards I normally make and he wasn't sure he liked it, so not sure if that's good or bad, talk about deflation.

Anyway I coloured the image in promarkers and used sakura glitter , pearl and glaze pens for glitz and shine. I mounted on glitter paper and added a couple of gems in the punched corners at the top.

The band across the  lemon pearlised card that I partly dry embossed using a fiskars plate and elbow grease , is made up of copy paper , punched vellum , torn onion paper then 2 ribbons. I love the broad ribbon with its sparkle, beads , sequins and glitter pretty but not in your face. Not sure as yet who or what I would use this card for possibly a birthday or a thank you card who knows where it will flutter along to?
