Fairy Dance Card

I made this card for Lavinia stamp's 'Add some glitter' challenge.  I started out by die cutting the square out of glossy paper.  I stamped the 2 fairies and the mushrooms (all from Lavinia stamps).  I then used 3 shades of blue ink for the main image, and the second tone all around the outer edge (I kept one of the dies in place as a stencil for the ink, leaving that area white).  I added some purple tinted glitter glue to the fairy on the left, and some greenish blue glitter glue to the one on the right.  I topped the mushrooms with red glitter glue.

I die cut a companion circle out of blue vellum, and three flowers from crepe paper.  I added some glitter glue dots to the circle and put a pearl sticker in the middle of the flower.  I wanted something else and decided on a piece of glitter ribbon, which shows through the inset die cut of the square.  Then I glued everything down.
