Rose Flower Fairy in distress

As you can probably see on my blog I just love fairies. This one - Rose Flower Fairy from Stamps Happen is no exception - what's not to love? ;)
I made this card for this week's Simon Says challenge and it's Shabby Shic (Shabby Chic is "showing signs of wear and tear, distressing, whites, worn or bleached out pastels, rustic" (courtesty of Wikipedia !!
The fairy started on a white paper and was colored with Prisma pencils - then I added Stickles for a bit of bling. After the Stickles dried I started distressing - I used Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress inks - until the image looked all antique and distressed. I did the same for the background papers (from Creative imaginations). Then just a soft pink velvet ribbon and couple of pink pearls and the card is done.

I will enter it into Flutterby Wednesday Challenge too where anything goes this week - as long as it has a butterfly, fairy or an angel.
