It must be a Magical Monday

Today marks the first day on the Magical Monday design team.  Our challenges last for 2 weeks and so that gives you plenty of time to dig out your magical stamps.
Our next challenge has a theme of Punches and Embossing.  Don't forget to use a Magical image in order to be in a chance of winning our prize which is your choice of 3 sheets of Decoupage from The 
Crafty Purple Frog.

Here is my card for the challenge :

I made a twisted easel card. 



Here is a close-up of the beautiful fairy 


And here you can see how I trimmed her out and popped her up on foam pads 


For this card I chose to use my trusty Martha Stewart double loops punch to fit in with the current magical monday's challenge.
Here's how I made my card. 
I chose the gorgeous Ally and beeble from the Australian company Emerald Fairy Garden.  She has some of the best fairies around and I struggled picking just one.  I them coloured with my copics and added glamour dust to het wings and sakura clear stardust pen to the ladybugs spots.  I then very carefully cut her out.
The green and blue panel behind Ally was made by blending crushed olives, faded jeans and bundled sage.  I then sprayed my perfect pearls mist to give it some extra sparkle.
The plain blue and green cardstock is american crafts.  I don't know the make of the stripy paper I'm afraid but the strip on the base of the card has got glamour dust across each colour change.
I am entering this card into the following challenges :
Papertake weekly- anything goes
Emerald Fairy Garden - lots of bling
The Sweet Stop - for the sketch I changed the flower for the strip of punched loops

The design team have once again outdone themselves and are well worth having that closer look.
I hope you come and join us over at Magical Monday's.
Hugs
