Happy Birthday

Final back into card making again. It took me quit a while because of various reasons. But I'm happy to be back and still loving it!
For my first card this year I didn't use a coloured stamp or anything but a die from Marianne Design. It is a Creatable-LR0323 Fairy Star and already an old one, but the moment I saw it I knew what to make with it. And it is so suitable for making cards with black card stock because the little fairy is coming out perfectly in black.
The paper pad I used is from Kaisercraft, 'Fairy Dust', how convenient, lol.  A beautiful paper pad in the colors silver, teal/green and purple. The sentiments used on the outside and inside of the card are also coming from this paper pad. So for now, no stamping at all.
I matted the fairy on designpaper and card stock cut out with a die from Crealies, Crea-Lies-Nest XXL nr. 24, Stitched Rectangle.
On the wings of the fairy I put Stickels, 'Star Dust'.
The sentiment is matted on a Scalloped Round Nestabilitie.
The flowers used are coming from Wild Orchid Crafts. So does the black stamens and the metallic silver corner.
The Ivy is a die from Creative Expressions, 'Trailing Ivy'. It cuts out beautiful!

The black card stock and the little fiary are both glued with some adhesive foam blocks to give the card a more dimensional view.
The inside of the card I decorated accordingly. For that I used again my Crealies dies and for the edge an old punch from Martha Stewart.
The corner is a die from Cuttlebug.
The ribbon on the card I had already a long, long time. And looking over my stash I came across it and it matched perfectly with the black and silver and the greenish sequins.
On top of my card I used a die from Joy! Crafts. The butterflies are dies from Cheery Linn and Die-Namics.
For the rest used Stickels, 'Star Dust' on the flowers and butterflies, some teal rhinestones and a bow from black Scrappers Flos. The papers I inked with Distress Ink, 'Black Soot'.
That was it for now ladies. My first card for 2016! And maybe today a new post with another card with this beautiful little fairy.
Thanks for stopping by and watching.
