Pink Roses

I've never tried to combine stamp images on a card before so this was a first for me.  With the current challenge from In The Pink (Fairies and Elves) at the back of my mind I wanted to do a pink fairy for it, after my attempt at a pink elf.

I've used Lili of the Valley's Fairies - On Tiptoe for the main image.  Behind this I've used Grunge and Vintage Set 47 - Background Bits Old Romance.  I've also used part of this same set to make the top right corner piece on the card.
All the stamped images were coloured with Pro-Lite Markers
The papers are from Lili of the Valley and NitWit Collections paper pad Always and Forever Solids and On A high Note
The pink ribbon is from Lili of the Valley Little Bags of Ribbon - Pink.  The white lace is also from Lili of the Valley from when I visited their shop recently.
All the paper flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I added some metal hearts around the flowers which I got in Hobby Craft
The extra embellishments are self adhesive pearl gems and a couple of mini brass butterflies.
To finish off I added some glitter to the fairies wings

The card actually came out better than I'd hoped so I entered it into the In The Pink Challenge 51 and Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Pastels (Soft) Colours.  Let the experiments continue :)
