Be True To Who You Are

Never a true word said ! A couple of months ago I was so lucky to win three stamp sets from Sam Poole through Creative Expressions. I love the art journal style of these.

To make this card I created a background with Cosmic Shimmer Mists. I stamped the fairy onto different papers and paper pieced the final one. I stamped on the dress and overstamped the background with a texture stamp from the set and the quote.

Challenges I am entering:
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Lets get Inky and Messy
Perfect Sentiments Challenge - Include a sentiment
Word Art Wednesday- Uplifting sentiment
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Card Cupids - Wings
