Fairy Wishes.....

Hello everyone: I had this image in my box of "unfinished" projects and today I finally finished it up.
It's sad to have such a pretty Fairy just stuck in a box, don't you think?
I will link this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

This image is from my stash of plain red rubber stamps that my aunt gifted me with some years ago. She found about 25 stamps in a box at a thrift store, they were dusty, some of them stained but I just washed them and was amazed at the beauty of this images.  I didn't know where they came from or what company made them but some time later I found out that they were from a company called "Sweet Pea Designs". 
I stamped this image onto water color paper with Stazon black ink and then, stamped the wings and flowers again with Versamark ink and heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder, then colored it with Sakura Koi water colors, the sentiment is gold embossed onto Vellum.
The pattern paper is from a retired line from Lili of the Valley.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is my favorite to use when I make Fairy cards, it's from a discontinued stamp set from Flourishes called "Orchids", the butterflies are from my stash.

I'm playing at the following challenges.

The Paper Players Challenge #363, a sketch from Nancee.

Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes Birthday"

The Fairy and the Unicorn Challenge #7 
"Anything Goes with an optional theme of Pixie, Gnome or Troll.
I picked the Pixie.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
