Believe ?

I didn't think I would be doing Fashionable stamping's challenge this time as the theme of Mysterious or magical sort of eluded me, couldn't think of any stamps to use as I don't normally do fantasy stuff, I dug out what few stamps I could think of and nothing inspired me. Yesterday, looking through a pile of unmounted stamp sets I saw the Oxford Impressions Fairy Sweet set and shame on me, I have never used this gorgeous little fairy before. The background came from a pile of inky bits and pieces so I have no idea what I used on it, probably some glimmer mists as it is quite sparkly. The stamped bit of paper at the bottom I used a freebie stamp from a magazine. The bit of lace was in the bits and pieces box and the heart and wording are from another Oxford Impressions set.Now I have got these sets out think I may be using them quite a bit again.
