Fairy Fun Fridays week 13



**If you're here for the Karen's Doodles blog hop, please scroll down to the next post**
I'm running very behind with this card - it was one of those where everything goes wrong! First I sliced the skin off my knuckle (just managed not to bleed all over the card!) with my guillotine, then the printer wouldn't work so I couldn't use the cupcake with the stars that I wanted to use and had to use one that was already printed instead. I got there in the end though!

This week at Fairy Fun Fridays the challenge is 'texture', and I decided to use a little gadget I've had in my stash for years and I'm not sure if I've ever used it - a paper crimper. I think I quite like the effect. The image is from the cupcakes set available here, I coloured it with promarkers, layered up the top of the cupcake for some dimension and added some Papermania spotty buttons. The papers are MME - a customer (waves to Laura, hello!) asked for a card similar to one I made before but I didn't think I'd got enough of this paper - luckily I found enough leftover to piece this together. Shimmery green cardstock from my stash, green MME buttons and a Craftwork Cards sentiment to finish.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
