Fairies in the garden.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well. I got all my housework done yesterday morning and then I settled down to watch the men`s Wimbledon final.
OMG what a match and Andy Murray played his heart out. I was on the edge of my seat.
My day of crafting went out of the window but i did manage to make one using one of my new Inkylicious stamps, this one is fairy tales.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:

This is beautiful Nic... very hmm, I think the word is 'ethereal' (not sure how you spell that).. and you'll have to look up the definition!! LOL! I definitely have fairies at the bottom of my garden... there is always fairy dust there... or is that me dropping glitter after making my cards??? hehe!

Big hugs
