Congratulations

A congratulations card today for a friend.  I wanted to incorporate a fairy and keep the card fairly CAS.


I started by covering a card blank with purple card.  I assembled everything else on a piece of card slightly smaller than the base card to make it easier to get everything level.  The top half of the card is embossed with a CB ' Swiss Dots' folder.  I used a MB ' Stitched Country Border' die to make the stripes, overlapping the layers.  The Congratulations ribbon is by Dovecraft, which I wrapped around the card.  The Poppystamps 'Posing Faerie' die comes in in two parts, so the image can be used without the wings.  It would be perfect for a ballerina without the wings.  When everything was assembled, I attached the decorated piece of card to the base card, leaving a narrow purple frame. 

I am joining in the following challenges:
