A Magical Day

Morning folks, here's hoping this finds you all well and that you've had a good week. Mine has been mixed with being busy but the best thing was a phone call from my younger daughter Sarah. She's recently started her second year of a degree in fashion and this year is spent designing collections for clients.
She's just completed her first one and worked so hard on this that I am really delighted to be able to say that hers was chosen as one of ten to send to the company and it's now winging its way to Cape Town where the company is based (yippee!)
Now for the new Polka Doodles challenge which has been chosen by Claire this time and she would like to see your Mystical and Magical creations - so let's see those fairies, witches, dragons and so on.
It's also what we call our stashbox stamp week so I've used a set of Papermania fairy stamps with some really pretty Polka Doodles papers.

I covered my card blank with the pretty leaf paper from the Pretty Sweet CD and added a border of dotty paper punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.
I stamped a little scene on a circle of white card and coloured everything with Promarkers. I made the little butterflies 3D by stamping these again, cutting them out and adding with foam tape. I inked the edge of the circle.
I stamped the fairy, coloured her with Promarkers, cut her out and glittered her wings by rubbing on embossing ink and heat embossing with crystal powder. I added a pink dotty scalloped mat cut with a Nestabilities die to the circle scene and added the fairy with foam tape. She's been positioned as if she's looking at the tiny sweet fairy on the toadstool.
I added some very pretty lace, a ribbon bow and stamped and matted sentiment to finish.

Challenges for my card:
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties - Embellish
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
 Passion For Promarkers - For A Child
Totally Papercrafts - Glitter It!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend,
Fliss xx
