Fairy or Clown???

2011_01_20_1270
Call me thick… but.
The name of this stamp that i have used today on my card, is Fairy with balloon… mmmmmm. looks more like a clown to me?! where are his wings… don’t fairy’s have wings. Maybe they are tucked behind his baggy top? he he… 

2011_01_20_1270
anyhow.. as i said this stamp is called Fairy with balloons and is by stamps happen.  I have used papers by G.C.D studious – Paris nights, which i have stitched around the edges..
I am joining in with Crafts & Me ……. Monochrome
and
1 of something. (image)
2 of something (two swirls cut using dies Marianne ) design
3 of something……..(three different dp…)
2011_01_20_1272
I glittered the swirl and then added some papermania pears and some bling from my stash.
the bought flowers are from wild orchid crafts. and the brad in the middle of the layered circles is from The hobby house

I have decorated the inside of this card to complement the front..
Thank you for taking the time to drop by, hope that you have enjoyed your visit.. hope that you all have a fabulous weekend..
