Fairy Birthday Card

This card is made of colors inspired by the photo over at HoC. I think I've covered all the colors except for the peach one. I've used Spellbinders Nestabilities Timeless Rectangles and Opulent Ovals dies. The fairy image is made with a stamp from Lost Coast Designs. I've used a stamp from the same company on the large oval, heat embossed with white embossing powder. The crown on the fairy's head is made with a stamp from 7gypsies. I used Dusty Concord Distress Ink for the stamping, and I added Star Dust Stickles to the crown and the wings.
The purple DP with spots is from Lily Bee Design, and the lavender one I found in my pile of scraps. As for embellishments I've used 4 light blue pearls and a fabric flower from Panduro. The sentiment in Norwegian (meaning both happy birthday and congratulations) is made with a die from KaBoks. I cut it out in both silver mirri card and a dark shade of purple for a shadow effect.

This card is for these challenges: 
1) House of Cards - Colors + Shabby & Vintage
2) Crafter's Cafe - #30 Diecuts/Punches
3) LEJ Designs  - #72Lots of Layers
4) Sweet Stampin - Things with Wings

Oh wow Pia! How FAB-U-LOUS! Gorgeous design - love that stamp and your 'fussy cutting' is superbly even.

(I find that oval die very tricky with edges frequently ending up ripped when I use - do you have difficulty with it?)

Happy Sunday! Nicola x
