Do you believe in fairies?

Here's a quick card for Try It On Tuesday challenge which is do you believe in fairies? well not sure I do !  I do believe in Angels but fairies ??  what are they for !  Anyhow all that didn't stop me having a go. At first I was not sure I had any fairy stamps but a root about produced several including this Lily Of The Valley one.  I painted her with mica powders so she is quite irridescent in the flesh so to speak. I also managed to master the cutting with nestability oval without chopping her wings off (took a couple of goes before I got it right)  Not my usual sort of card but it will come in handy for one of the Great Grand children, there are three girls under the age of four so I'm sure it will suit one of them. I am trying to only make cards I know I can use so I don't end up with a lot more unused cards in my box.
