Fairy wishes

 Hello, my friends,

The Cardologists believe chocolate is necessary for the creative process. Needless to say a lot of M&Ms went into this project.   The card took over my whole afternoon.  It started as a simple small card but then it called to be switched around and made into a buckle.  (The actual card went through several metamorphosis until ending up as a gray card with embossed swirls distressed with blue.)

 The fairy stamp is a Penny Black stamp. I stamped her twice and popped up the head and star.  I stamped the wings twice with Staz-On on acetate, and cut them out, leaving a tab to slip into the slit I made along her dress.

It wasn't going to be a Christmas card either but when I went looking through my stash I found this sentiment that fit perfectly. 

Spellbinders Labels Twenty-two  formed the "buckle" and framed the sentiments from two different Stampin' Up sets, one retired, one Petite Pairs.

Thank you for visiting today.
