Lavender fairy

I was having a good old root through my box(es) of rubber stamps, oops, I didn't realise I had quite so many and they've been mainly unused for a very long time now, particularly since I discovered digi stamps. I rediscovered this Lavender Fairy stamp and remember buying this from QVC many years ago, along with a scented lavender ink pad (which I was disappointed with, the scent was very faint and the ink faded!).

I had a little play and came up with this, pity there's no fairy or wings challenges at the moment but I did find a couple it fits into.


Recipe:
6" x 6" card base from stash
DP - both were printed on my computer
Purple card for mats from stash
Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch
Lavender Fairy wood mounted rubber stamp by Inca (I think)
Image coloured with Promarkers and wings have been glittered.
Sparkly adhesive stones from Papermania
Lace from local shop

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Crafts #94 - Dazzle Us - Glitter on wings, sparkly stones
Pollycraft #47 - Ribbon and Bling (I hope the lace can be counted as ribbon, if not just ignore me!)
Ooh La La Creations #55 - Use colours of their blog
PaperPlay #22 - Flowers and sparkle
Ann's Creative Nook #91 - Butterfly (it's on the stamped image's lower flower)
And I managed to find one for Wings at Totally Gorjuss #32
And thanks to Emma for pointing me in the direction of Mami Doodles Up In The Air
