Fairy dust everywhere ... oh & a new card for an order !!

Here we have a birthday card made this evening which also resulted in me spilling some gold mica powder so I know have sparkly dust in my flat :-) 

Any-ways, here's the recipe....

Firstly, I apologise for the photographs. The bulb in my ottlite has blown so I am having to use an LED desk light - and its just not the same. I am the case of getting it replaced.. I miss it.

I have used loads of products from different companies so be warned....

Whilst having a clear out t'other month, I came across a pack of papermania "confetti" paper so have used this throughout. I thought it was beautiful when I bought it and I still do.

I mat & layered a square piece onto black card & attached to a 8x8 card blank.

Using the same black card stock and a Dreamees Cuttables Vol 3  I cut the mannequin.  It doesn't show up on the photo too well but you can see it much better in real life. Then from the pattered paper I cut the dress and some of the flowers. The rest of the flowers were cut from Sue Wilson's 'classic rose' die.

I ran a rectangle of black card through the ebosser using the free embossing folder and wiped it over gently with clear perfect medium. THIS is where I created the fairy dust !! I got the pot of mica down, dusted the embossed card and then slipped when putting the lid back on. There's still 3/4 of a pot left so not too much went to waste. The rest is now floating around my flat !!!!

I also cut a corner from the Create & Craft Die-lectables range - this one is from the Dragon fly corner set. 
The happy birthday sentiment is from Rob Adams range of dies.

So then it was a case of shaping the flowers and putting it all together.
I added some flat backed pearls and card candi to the flowers et voile - the card is finished.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today x
