Loving 'Sylvestre'

This month over at Scrap Pile I am working with Rouge de Garance 'Sylvestre' papers, and I am so in love with the silvery greens!!

Here's a peek at my first layout:

and a couple of details too:

Then with one of the offcut pieces I made this card:

# Humble Pie ~ Bling challenge

I used two kinds of bling - Kaisercraft pearls and Derivan 'Crystal Glitter' acrylic medium.  I tried hard to get the glitter to show up in the photograph ~ if you squint you can just see the shine on the wings.  This is the first time I've used my Humble Pie 'Chrysanthemum Fairy' stamp too ~ she's so cute!!
