Fairy Anya Card

A friend of mines' daughters birthday is coming up and I needed to make a card for her so I thought I'd enter a couple of challenges( The Greeting Farm and Flutter By Wednesday) and try out my new Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm.
It's four in the morning now so I will write what I did tomorrow, or ah' later today I guess, lol
...It's six pm now and since I've been having trouble entering the contest at TGF I decided to make some changes to the card. I added the flowers, the pink border, and some pearls to the number...I think this looks much better. I knew it needed more last night or this morning, I guess, but I was just way too tired to think. So after making the changes I went back to TGF and had to re register in order to be able to upload...probably a blessing in disguise.

Moving on, for the card I used some DCWV cardstock that I had in different packs, border was one from MS, and the flowers from Imaginesce.

For the wings: Anya's outer wings were from Grafix clear craft plastic which I stamped with stays on jet black ink then went over with a ranger perfect medium pen and embossed with a mixture of embossing gels. I cut out the wings leaving extra length at the end. Next I cut around the outline of Anya's arms, just enough to slide in the strip from the wings, then inserted them in. I then bent them up a little and taped them on the back.

The crown was from the storybook cricut cartridge and for the underpart i took the same plastic and stamped it with stays on ink in a purple, embossed it,and cut it out the same size to go behind the white crown.

Sorry that was so lengthy but i thought for anyone who might like to know I'd put it out there. I think in the future I'm going to give myself a couple of days before I post to competitions... It seems lately that after I've taken a pic of my creation I can spot more things I can do. Anyway, hope you enjoy! Now I have to go delete one of my profiles on TGF and hopefully all will be good. Have a good one, Autumn
