Crafty Cardmakers - fairies & punches


It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight we'd like to see fairies... but with a little twist as you must also use at least 2 punches.  I had fun with this one - I've had this LOTV stamp for a while but I've not had chance to use it yet, so this was a good excuse to get her coloured in.

I've coloured her with promarkers and covered her wings in glamour dust.  I'm now wondering if the area behind her arm should have been coloured as part of her top though!  Probably, but never mind...  The papers are my current faves from one of the Dovecraft 'back to basics' packs - at least I'm getting plenty of use out of them but sorry if they're starting to bore you now!  Cardstock is coredinations, butterfly cut with a MS punch, computer generated sentiment cut out with the Stampin' Up word window punch, MME flower buttons & pearls from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
