Piling it on

Do you have these moments when your mojo is somewhat sluggish so you dig out loads of different embellies that might work on your card and end up chucking most of them on because you just can't make up your mind?
Well, that's what's happened here.
I made this card for Sentimental Sundays where the challenge is Wings. I'm sure if you look closely you can spot quite a few, lol. The colouring is pure Copic job, with some added Stickles and Viva clear glitter liner.
The image is from A Day For Daisies and I really like it - except that the poor fairy seems to have just 7 fingers altogether. Oh well, mythical creatures and so on...

I won't even go into all those bits I've stuck on - just too many to list them really. Some of the things I've had in my stash forever, some bits I've got from my generous blogging friends as RAK.
I just used a single sheet of Websters Pages paper for background, didn't feel any need to enhance it with layering.
I'd like to enter these challenges:
2 Sisters (2 weeks) - gettin girly
Secret Crafter - tons of texture
Cute Card Thursday - use some old stash
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes- Optional: Lace

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

It's her skin to me that has come alive. Gorgeous. Those wings are beautiful, and the embellishments just finish off the magical theme.

OMGoodness, Annika! You had me laughing out loud about the fingers!! ROFL. Awesome card and I didn't recognize this as ADFD for some reason it looked like that other maker what is it sweet peas or something....
Yesterday I was bemoaning my lack of embellies, (making a cowboy card)still don't know where you girls find half the stuff I see on your cards. lol
Great job, Annika.:-)
