Fairy new obsession

I recieved some fairies in the post the other day after ordering from Sweet pea stamps, let me tell you from a customers perpective, THIER SERVICE IS EXCEPTIONAL!  When i ordered i noticed on their site it says to give them time for manufacture, posting etc, i thought, here goes....... its gonna take forever, hell no, i had my stamps within two weeks of my order, and i live in deepest darkest Africa.  Thats what i call service.
Ok now onto this amazing  new little fairy, "blue Fairy, from Melissa Dillman
Colored with my trusty copics, cut with labels fourteen, her wings got a good going over with stardust sticles

Patterned paper from Graphics 45, you will definitely see more of this gorgeous paper in the future i love it!
Sentiment stamp from LOTV
Ribbon, flowers and butterflies from my stash, i had to color the butterflies to match my card so used my airbrush with copics.
Added some dazzling diamonds to the edges of all my layers.
Gonna enter this card into the following two challenges:
Sweet pea stampers: showers of flowers
In a sweet pea dream: bling it up
P.S: i found that the challenge on Crafts and me is anything goes, with an optional extra of Kraft, so am gonna enter this on their challenge, even although i didnt use the kraft paper it is anything goes and the kraft is optional

    I have recently discovered sweetpea stamps myself and have am waiting on delivery of my first order of them. I can't wait to start playing with them. I have never used copics before and have also just ordered a set of them so can't wait to learn how to use them.
