On Tiptoes ......

I love the LOTV fairy image stamps include this little cutie which is called 'On Tiptoes'.  I don't usually do glitter or sparkle but I did manage to use some Stickles on her wings and also on the Card Candy I used at the top corners of the card - I coloured it first with a tan Promarker to match the image.  At the bottom of the card I used a piece of lace and put some ribbon along the top edge - something I've not done before with ribbon and lace.  The ribbon is some of the oldest in my store and dates back to pre-Promarker days when everything I made was brown!!

Here's a close up of the ribbon and lace - I also added some pink pearls to the lace:

The pink paper I used is from a pad that was free on the front of one of the magazines earlier this month.

I'd like to enter the card in the following challenges:
