Silhouette Fairy Easel

It's my niece's birthday in a couple of weeks and she's still secretly mad about fairies. She'll be 14, and worries that her friends will tease her, so keeps her obsession a deep dark secret. I'm hoping that this card will convince her that fairies are for big girls too!!

The easel card was cut using my new Nestie's Labels 8. I then used Distress Inks to make the background and used the digital masking technique to place the digital stamp (kindly given to me by Stitchy Bear Stamps, available here) onto the card. I've added some dimensional glitter glue the tips of the fairy's wings. The leaves and flowers have been punched from black paper.
