I did use a spellbinder die to cut the fairy out but I ended up cutting the ends off because it was to big, so I only used the center. My sentiment is hard to read it says SPREAD YOUR WINGS AND FLY and that is from Cindy Close. The pearls are from Hobby Lobby, come in a string and it says Ribbon FX.  I added some Pearl Pen from Viva color cream around the fairy. Sponged the edges with distress ink color tumbled glass.

The corner cuts are from Cherry Lynn designs B163 lace corner deco C. The lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts. The paper is from DCWV it is the luxury stack. The butterfly's are from Martha Steward punch called classic butterfly. I punched the butterfly’s  out with  a gold Vellum. The sparkle on her wings is Stampendous Fan-tage color shaved ice.

Surprised at the way this picture turned out the card stock is the same but I guess the lighting made it look different. I trimmed the edges with another one of Martha Stewards punches. Left the center open for a written message or a stamped message.

Here is the close up of the image and you can see how the fran-tage looks. It is so pretty.
