5 challenges in 1 !!!

I made this card to enter the Charisma Cardz and The Craft Stamper challenges, then it evolved to include the Friday sketch, the Cuttlebug and the Secret Crafter Saturday challenges.
For the Charisma Cardz challenge the theme is 'fantasy' so I used my flower fairy as the main image.
The Craft Stamper challenge is to use the cuttlewax technique as seen in the Feb magazine, there's a lovely article in there by Isabelle Norris. Well, I didn't have any wax paper so I made my own by scribbling a white candle all over a piece of paper and voila !! it worked :-) I used my favourite swirls cuttlebug folder, which qualifies it for the cuttlebug challenge, and then ironed it onto another piece of paper which I sprayed with blue and green glimmer mists then, when it was dry,I smeared a little faded denim distess ink onto areas of it. I love the effect this gives and will definately do this again.
The Secret Crafter Saturday challenge asks for hearts to be used, well I used a heart shaped chipboard heart shape, which I sponged with the faded denim ink and embossed a 'thank you' text onto it using silver versacolor and clear emboss.
The swirly flower which I attached in the corner is a Tim Holts grungeboard die cut which I coloured blue and sprayed with green glimmer mists, then painted the flower part with twinkling H2O's
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments, so please leave me one :-)

Tilda and friends ATC challenge

Hi I made this for the Tilda and friends ATC challenge which was to use something sticky, well these Magenta outline stickers have been sitting in a drawer for a couple of years so it's about time they got an airing :-) I also used a magenta paw stamp and some lovely velvety paw print ribbon.
If anyone would like to swap this is available, there are also some on a previous post, scroll down to see those if you're interested
