Crafts & Me DT Card - We Are Going 3D

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Sorry I've been MIA I ended up catching that awful flu bug off Natalie & it passed onto my chest, Natalie is still poorly with hers but thankfully over the worst of it.........I havn't had one for years so I cant complain really but it did knock me off my feet so again no crafting lol.
Anyway its time for a new challenge over at Crafts & Me Challenges & this week our lovely Angela has set the theme which is...............
3-D
Which means all those fabulous yummy embellishments we all love to put on our cards, flowers, gems, pearls, buttons etc etc.............
I have used an older stamp by Jasmine Becket-Griffith & its one of my favourites by her, I say 1 lol. This is 'Making A Wish' & I just think she is sooooooooo pretty & I love her little angel/fairy on her shoulder. The stamp of course you can get from Crafts & Me Store.

The paper is one of the new pads from Prima 'Fairy Belle' & I matted onto dark brown card & inked the edges with vintage photo. I also added Melissa Frances pearls to the corners. The paper & pearls were from 
My Crafty Heart.

The butterfly was cut using a Marianne die & I heat embossed it to make it look sparkly & added pearls to the body.

The organza ribbon & butterfly button are from my stash which I've had quite a while. The image I coloured with copics & added spots of white gel pen to the hair & gold gel pen to parts of her clothes.

Please pop on over to see my fabulous teamies creations & leave them a wee bit of love. Hope you can join us this week for our 3-D Challenge, we look forward to seeing your wonderful creations.

Thank you so much for stopping by I really do appreciate it. I will be popping round later to see you all. xoxoxox
