Golden Fairy and Stenciled Background

Just a quick CAS card from me today! Hadn't planned to post anything, but suddednly I had the urge to make this card - and after all, today is World Card Making Day!

I've used a fairy die from Marianne. I cut her out of gold paper and and adhered her to craft foam for a bit more dimension.

The background is covered with blue paint and I used my new Memory Box star stencil. I added embossing paste and some gold glitter frantage on the stars.

I left out a sentiment as I was trying to avoid the trap of adding more and thus moving away from the CAS style. It's also practical having some cards with no sentiments available, and I think this design will work for several occasions.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
1) Addicted to CAS - Stencil
2) My Time to Craft - #261 Die cuts only
3) Crafting When We Can - #79 No Designer Papers
4) Crafty Boots - Gold

Pia, your fairy is beautiful, especially against that magical sky. I agree, sometimes not putting a sentiment on a card makes it much more flexible:-) So glad you joined us at ATCAS this week
