This weeks theme over at Cupcakes Challenge is Fairytales. We have two superb prizes for grabs  fromDi's Digi Downloads - $10 Gift Certificate
Quixotic Paperie - £10 Gift Voucher
 Hopefully you will see my card is based on Cinderella and is the fairygodmother (you can see the resemblance if you squint)
I made a little wand with a jewelled heart cut from a jewelled stem, added a few pearl brads and blossoms and rosebuds all from the Ribbon Girl. The image is a by Pure Innocence. I paperpieced the little fairy's wings to make it look as though she is fluttering.
