DYSU Fantasy

Here's my card for this week's Do You Stack Up? challenge, Fantasy. I can't believe I blew past the deadline last week for the Buttons challenge (no, wait, yes I can...) Because the new challenges are up on Thursdays, I constantly blow past the Tuesday deadline in my head. So, this challenge ends TUESDAY, ladies, at 5 PM.

My first thoughts for fantasy are fairies & mermaids, and I didn't stray far - a fairy ballerina!
Supplies: image from the Graphics Fairy;
papers from Basic Grey "Plumeria;"
flowers from Prima;
Martha Stewart branch punch;
standard oval Nesties;
Sakura Stardust clear glitter pen
I added a touch of Stardust to her jewelry & her wings. The branch frame & flowers were a bit fiddly to adhere - I think my punch needs sharpening, because not only did it give me fits, but all the punched pieces came out sort of curly & hard to work with. Lots of cursing & glaring & drying with books on top for this card!
ANyhow, link up your FANTASY creations over at DYSU before TUESDAY. TUUUUUUEEEEESDAY. Just sayin'.

Such a sweet image, especially sweet with the wreath of flowers and leaves! How much coffee have you had? Love it!

The touch of Stardust is magnificently perfect!

Agree with Amy, that touch of stardust is wonderful on this card, Jessi!

I always thought that if the punch came up curly it was because of the quality of the pp... hmm maybe I should sharpen them as well!

Such a pretty frame for the lovely image. I've been "collecting" images from GF for quite awhile now and have yet to use many in my card making. Your card is beautiful!
