Pixie Cottage Challenge # 84

Happy Wednesday!
I hope you all had a great week, wow,
has it really been an entire week
since my last posting?!?
Yes it seems so...
Well I had the perfect reason to post today
the new Pixie Cottage Challenge!
Here is the sketch:
The theme for the week is summers night so remember,
you can do both the sketch and theme or one or the other. 

I created a card with an abstract twist of a summer night:
(click for sharper image)

The stamp I used is a South End Girl image,
she's a real darling!
There is a lot going on here that you can see
if you click the image and squint LOL!
I distressed the heart dry embossed circle die cut
that lies behind the paper pieced flower.
The frame behind the Fairy is wet embossed,
which hasn't been attempted in a while because
I cringe when the paper warps!
I stamped the word "dream"
several times in white ink and finally black ink
to give a dreamy feel.
This is a very exciting card to me because
 I feel like I am getting back to where
to where I want to be with card making,
 foot loose and fancy free!
Well thanks for stopping by and
I can't wait to see what you come up with!
