Crafty Creations Challenges #216 - Flowers or Fairies

The current Crafty Creations Challenge is to use Flowers or Fairies on your card, and that was the perfect prompt for me to use this fairy ballerina I'd printed out but not yet used:

Supplies: fairy ballerina from the Graphics Fairy; papers from memory box; classic small oval & Labels 5 Nesties; sentiment sticker from Mrs. Grossman's; Wilton doily; scrap ribbon; stick pins made by me!

I was so excited by the stick pins (seriously!) that I forgot to add any glitter to the ballerina's wings. I think that's a first. But look at those pins:

*happy sigh*
They are stuck in to the knot of the bow, and then I used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (like Glossy Accents) to adhere them to the card base as well. You don't want sharp parts poking off the card! 

The CCC linky is open until Tuesday.

I do love those pins! I am in dire need of pins! And don't think I've ever seen that ballerina at the Graphics Fairy. Very pretty. Stop by my blog at the end of the week. I've got some new things I'm working on. Thanks for the award again!

This one is swoon worthy! That image, the soft colors, the pretty ribbon, and best of all those custom pins! They pack quite the Wowsers effect!

oooh, I'm swooning over those stick pins myself, definitely a 'hoarding' item to be looked at & occasionally placed near a card, pondered for a while but then put safely away again lol.

Are they cloisonne stick pins? Well no wonder you were so excited by them! They are truly beautiful, and very different from other pins I see out there.

Your ballerina image is light as a feather, and the sheer ribbon goes so well with it. Hugs!
