I have made a card which covers both of these challenges. The Funky Fairy challenge was "Bling" and the My Paper World one was sketch #7.The strip of paper and the stamped image are from the new Laura Ashley range. I have added the strip of paper to the card balnk per the sketch and placed some yellow Bazzill cardstock across it. I then painted the stamped image with Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Paint in Lime Twist ( this is the bling part) and left it to dry. I then added more bling by using the same paint around the edges of the card. I then mounted the stamped image on 3D foam and added 3 Primas with flower brads in their centres to the bottom right per the sketch. I finished with a peel-off greeting mounted on some yellow Bazzill.I am hoping the bling will show up in the photo, the paint gives a wonderful shimmering two-tone effect.

Great card! Isn't it such a smart move by LA to get in to the craft market? Their designs lend themselves so well I wonder what took them so long. Thanks for joining in the Funky Fairy challenge.
